Concord, NH - New Hampshire Democrats hosted a press call today at 12:30 pm exposing the facts of "Dodge, duck and dismantle" ahead of tonight's U.S. House vote on the damaging GOP proposal that the vast majority of the GOP presidential contenders have endorsed.
This proposal will cap discretionary and mandatory spending at the reckless levels proposed in the Ryan budget which includes deep cuts to clean energy, education, Medicaid and Medicare.
"I have a message for Charlie Bass, Frank Guinta and all of the Republican presidential candidates who have come to the Granite State and endorsed this proposal. Your agenda to double down on the failed economic policies of the past that nearly sank our economy into a second Great Depression, your out of touch plan to end Medicare as we know it, and your insistence on playing politics with the debt limit are not in line with New Hampshire values," said Ray Buckley, chair of the New Hampshire Democratic Party. "This type of extreme proposal is the reason a plurality of voters in both your districts are disappointed with your actions in Washington and the reason Granite Staters squarely oppose the GOP presidential candidates' so-called solutions for the economy."
"The truth of the matter is that what the Republicans are proposing isn't a solution at all, but instead a return to same dysfunctional policies of the Bush administration that brought our economy to the brink of a second Great Depression," said State Representative Cindy Rosenwald of Nashua. "I sincerely hope that my Congressman Charlie Bass and his colleague Frank Guinta will not put tax breaks for oil corporations and private jet owners ahead of Granite Staters. It is not what they were elected to do, and it is not in line with Granite Staters' common sense values."
