Bosse Campaign - Paul Hodes Fails Taxpayers

Scores just 5% from National Taxpayers Union

Hillsboro Republican Grant Bosse today criticized Congressman Paul Hodes for failing taxpayers. Hodes earned an “F” from the National Taxpayers Union, which released its latest ratings today. Hodes received a rating of just 5 out of 100. A rating of 16% or less classifies a member ofCongress as a “big spender”.

“Paul Hodes continues to fail taxpayers in New Hampshire and across America,” said Bosse. “As New Hampshire families prepare for Tax Day next week, they should remember Paul Hodes’ repeated failure to protect them.”

The NTU ratings are for 2007, but Hodes is already off to a dismal start in 2008. Earlier this year Hodes voted for the largest tax increase in history, supporting a record budget increase of $683 billion.

“New Hampshire can’t afford another two years of Paul Hodes’ budget-busting votes,” Bosse continued. “Paul Hodes votes against taxpayers 95 percent of the time. But in November, we can make sure he’s failed us for the last time.”

Bosse on Tuesday will be taking the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, sponsored by Americans for TaxReform. For more information on Bosse’s campaign, go to
