House Majority Leader D.J. Bettencourt (R-Salem) in Response to a NH Consumer Confidence Index poll

The following statement is from House Majority Leader D.J. Bettencourt (R-Salem) in response to a New Hampshire Consumer Confidence Index poll, conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center. 

“The results of this survey confirm that we are headed in the right direction in New Hampshire.  The voters of this state sent Republicans to Concord in large numbers to return fiscal sanity to the State House.  Increased taxes, over spending, downshifting additional costs to our communities, and bonding our children’s future is not the New Hampshire way, and under this legislature it is a thing of the past. The people of this state are now more bullish about the state’s economy than they have been in three years because of our strong commitment to making government live within its means—just as every household in this state must do.”
