- Rep. Cunningham: "I couldn't make up something that unfair"

In his August 30, 2010 column on, New Hampshire Representative Steve Cunningham writes,
"Unemployment is low, small businesses are expanding again, and our budget is balanced. ...I suppose I should embrace this news, but I can't. It is a lie." "...the rosy picture is painted by current politicians to help them keep their jobs."

"...the budget relied on borrowing, using one-time federal "stimulus money", stealing from emergency reserve funds from every agency it could, and calling state owned property "cash"."

"...small business men and women cannot collect unemployment, even though they are required to pay into the system. Honest, I couldn't make up something that unfair."
