Concord, NH - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement on the House Republican caucus reckless embrace of the anti-American nullification movement with HCR19.
"Since the beginning of the session, the State House agenda has been extremely reckless and posed a real danger to the people of New Hampshire. But today Speaker O'Brien and his irresponsible caucus went too far. They passed HCR19 which threatens the federal government with New Hampshire's rebellion against, and secession from, the United States of America.
"This new out of control and extremist Republican majority voted to waste taxpayer money sending letters all across the country to the President of the United States, to each and every member of Congress, and to both houses of each and every states legislature. That is money that could have been used to keep teachers in classrooms, police officers on the streets, create jobs, or reduce property taxes. Once again, Republicans have broken their promised to focus on jobs and the economy.
"When the Speaker claims that his dangerous and immoral budget was necessary, New Hampshire voters will see through his misinformation and untruths. They will not forget that he wasted our hard earned tax dollars on this reckless attempt at secession from the United States and increased his own legislative budget by $1.4 million dollars. Putting his irresponsible agenda before Granite State citizens is not the New Hampshire way."
