Also Blasts Speaker Norelli For Leading Organization That Supports It

Concord – New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Jennifer Horn called on New Hampshire Democrats to reject President Obama’s endorsement of a disastrous internet sales tax bill (AP, 4/22). The National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) has also endorsed the legislation. New Hampshire House Speaker Terie Norelli serves as the president of the NCSL.

“The internet sales tax bill endorsed by President Obama will hit consumers with higher prices and burden New Hampshire small business owners with onerous new regulations. It is a disastrous piece of legislation that would hurt the Granite State and empower states with a sales tax to grow government by taking more money out of the pockets of working families."

“Governor Hassan, Senator Shaheen, Congresswoman Kuster and Congresswoman Shea-Porter have refused to stand up for their constituents and actively oppose this legislation. It is time for them to denounce President Obama’s endorsement of this sales tax bill and join Senator Ayotte in the fight to protect New Hampshire small business owners and middle class families."

“Furthermore, it is a disgrace that the National Conference of State Legislatures has also endorsed this legislation given that this organization is lead by NH House Speaker Terie Norelli. By supporting this bill, Speaker Norelli has turned her back on New Hampshire and sided with out of state politicians who are desperate to collect more sales tax revenue. The speaker's actions are shameful and speak volumes about the priorities of the House Democrat leadership."
