Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on Governor Hassan's failed fiscal leadership. The New Hampshire Union Leader (5/25/13) reported that Hassan hasn't proposed any new ideas to balance the budget, but "maybe she does have a secret plan that she will discuss privately with lawmakers."
"Granite Staters shouldn't be forced to wonder if their governor has some kind of 'secret plan' to balance the budget, or no plan at all. Since the Democrat-controlled House rejected the governor's irresponsible proposal, she has failed to announce any new ideas to address the serious fiscal challenges facing New Hampshire.
"Unfortunately, Maggie Hassan's incompetent management of the budget process has proven that she is in over her head as our governor. Hassan should have developed a "Plan B" months ago to keep the promises she made to voters during her campaign and to put New Hampshire on a path towards a balanced budget. Instead, she has focused on blaming others for her embarrassing budget debacle and refused to provide the effective fiscal leadership that Granite Staters expect from their governor."
