NHDP Chair Ray Buckley's Statement on Disgraced Former Speaker Bill O'Brien

Concord - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement on disgraced former Speaker Bill O'Brien's decision to form a Congressional exploratory committee today.

"Bill O'Brien is New Hampshire's least popular politician for good reason.  His reckless and irresponsible agenda killed hundreds of New Hampshire jobs, threatened essential health care services for women through relentless attempts to de-fund Planned Parenthood, made the largest cuts to public higher education in American history, and ruthlessly attacked the rights of hard working New Hampshire families.

"New Hampshire is still reeling from the disastrous Bill O'Brien-Jeb Bradley budget and its massive deficit.  It is hard to imagine anyone less capable of representing the interests of New Hampshire families and taxpayers in Washington than O'Brien."
