Yet to Offer a Jobs Plan for NH Middle Class Families, Will Ayotte Embrace the Already-Failed Bush Policies Being Pushed by Her Washington Support System?
CONCORD - While Kelly Ayotte was in Barnstead yesterday, still refusing to give New Hampshire voters a plan to create jobs for middle class families, her ultimate DC establishment backer, National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Sen. John Cornyn, was full of ideas [Laconia Citizen, 1/13/10; Politico, 1/12/10]. With no foreseeable plan of her own, will Ayotte grab on to her pal's suggestions?
In an op/ed penned for Politico, Cornyn embraced the pillars of George Bush's failed economic regime: tax cuts for the country's wealthiest families, lax regulation of Wall Street and a health care system run by insurance companies, for insurance companies [Politico, 1/12/10]. Ayotte, at a local GOP meeting in Barnstead, failed again yesterday to offer one new idea for creating jobs in New Hampshire, instead resorting to political attacks and recycled talking points [Union Leader, 1/11/10, Laconia Citizen, 1/13/10].
"Kelly Ayotte has no jobs plan for New Hampshire, except a return to failed, George Bush economics," said Emily Browne, Press Secretary for the New Hampshire Democratic Party. "She's a candidate for US Senate and she's yet to put one new idea on the table to help middle class families in New Hampshire. The only things the Granite State is getting from her are talking points that have been used and policies that have failed."
Ayotte has a history of backing Washington GOP reform plans rather than being an independent voice for New Hampshire families. She has been a consistent supporter of the misguided House GOP health care plan which, along with eliminating essential consumer protections for Granite Staters, would have done nothing to help the thousands of middle class families in New Hampshire afford and access quality care [Concord Monitor, 12/10/09].
