NHDP - Ayotte Opposes Bill to Keep NH Jobs in the Granite State

Will Bill Binnie and Ovide Lamontagne Join Kelly Ayotte in Defending Irresponsible Tax Loophole that Lets Big Corporations Send New Hampshire Jobs Overseas?


CONCORD - Republican senate candidate Kelly Ayotte has come out against the major bipartisan jobs bill pending in front of Congress, including a provision that would eliminate the current tax loophole which lets corporations ship jobs overseas [ABC News, 3/3/10]. Will her Republican opponents join her in recklessly stonewalling job creation in the Granite State?  


"Kelly Ayotte has already proven she's more interested in creating gridlock than creating jobs and that she'll continue to push the GOP's job-killing agenda on the Granite State," said Emily Browne, Press Secretary for the New Hampshire Democratic Party. "By opposing this bipartisan jobs bill she is irresponsibly defending a tax loophole that lets big corporations ship New Hampshire jobs overseas, proving she's more interested in protecting corporate profits than in putting the Granite State back to work. Will Bill Binnie and Ovide Lamontagne join her in sending New Hampshire jobs across the globe?"


The bipartisan jobs bill was passed by the Senate last week and is pending in front of the House. By cutting the tax handouts for corporations who ship jobs overseas, the bill will fund billions in new infrastructure projects to create jobs in New Hampshire and across the country. Democratic senate candidate Paul Hodes has come out in favor of the bill, citing the need to support businesses that create American jobs [Hodes Press Release, 3/4/10].
