Going door to door is one of my favorite parts of campaigning. Getting the chance to visit the people of New Hampshire's Second District at their homes and talk about the issues with them is a great opportunity for me to hear from them firsthand. It's also great exercise walking through the streets of New Hampshire's beautiful cities and towns.
From the papers...
At the end of the year, America will face what is being referred to as the "fiscal cliff". This series of automatic policy changes will put "the budget on an unsustainable path" according to the Congressional Budget Office. The Nashua Telegraph wrote about Charlie's efforts to find a bipartisan solution to the "fiscal cliff". Here's a bit of what they had to say...
"[Charlie] Bass, who joined several of his colleagues outside of the Capitol, stressed to reporters the importance of coming up with a bipartisan solution.
'All the great decisions that have been made in American history have been made by people who have great principles but are willing to compromise,' Bass said. 'Compromise is not a capitulation of principle; it's getting the nation's business done.'
According to a Congressional Budget Office report issued in late May, if current fiscal policies continue, "the revenues collected by the federal government will fall short of federal spending, putting the budget on an unsustainable path. On the other hand, immediate spending cuts or tax increases would represent an added drag on the weak economic expansion.' "
