CONCORD, NH - Karen Testerman, Republican candidate for the United States Senate, criticized Jeanne Shaheen for not fighting for veterans in the recent budget proposal, which cuts veterans' benefits. Instead, she wants to use these cuts as a tool to raise taxes.
"Shaheen likes higher taxes, more of our money in the hands of wasteful government," Testerman said. "She apparently thinks we need more conferences in the Bahamas for government employees.
"Instead of raising taxes, Shaheen should find the money to restore veterans' benefits by proposing ways to reduce the waste and abuse of the money we already send to Washington. But that would be hard work."
