RGA: Maggie Hassan Balanced the Budget on the Backs of Taxpayers

The Republican Governors Association launched a new ad focused on the tax and fee hikes Maggie Hassan pushed to balance New Hampshire’s budget. Visit www.HassanTaxHikes.com to watch the ad.

“Maggie Hassan likes to talk about balancing the state budget, but she rarely tells the whole story,” said RGA communications director Mike Schrimpf. “The truth is Maggie Hassan used the budget bill to fight for 33 tax and fee hikes in the middle of the worst economy since the Great Depression, even increasing taxes on small businesses struggling to survive.”

“Maggie Hassan isn’t being completely honest with the voters about what she would do as governor either,” Schrimpf continued. “Despite raising taxes and fees by $300 million the last time she held office, Maggie Hassan is eyeing more tax hikes.”

“Maggie Hassan’s record exposes her campaign rhetoric as nothing more than political posturing. The fact is Maggie Hassan believes in higher taxes,” Schrimpf concluded.
