Concord – New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on President Obama’s budget:

“President Obama’s budget is a fiscal disaster that is radically out of step with the traditional New Hampshire principles of limited government, lower taxes and less spending. The Obama budget raises taxes on working families, adds more debt to pay for the president’s bloated spending proposals and never balances. It also fails to address the long-term fiscal challenges facing our country and does nothing to reform and preserve programs like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid for future generations.

“Senator Shaheen, Congresswoman Shea-Porter and Congresswoman Kuster need to stand up for New Hampshire by opposing the president’s disastrous budget. If they fail to denounce this irresponsible proposal, it will serve as another indication that they are completely out of touch with the Granite State’s fiscally conservative values.”
