WASHINGTON. D.C. – Congressman Frank Guinta hosted two townhalls last week – one in Manchester and the other in Laconia. This represents Congressman Guinta’s second and third townhalls since being sworn into the 114th Congress.
“The top two concerns I heard from constituents during last week’s townhalls echoed the apprehensions I’ve heard from Granite Staters since I took office earlier this year. First and foremost, our economy remains stagnant while the cost-of-living increases and take-home pay decreases. Secondly, families and small businesses continue to grapple with offsetting the harmful effects of the President’s healthcare law.
To resolve these concerns, I wrote legislation to repeal the devastating Cadillac tax under the President’s healthcare law which is set to inflict a 40% tax on workers’ health care plans – running up healthcare costs for individuals, companies, municipalities and taxpayers. Additionally, I introduced bipartisan legislation to rein in Washington’s “spend first, pay later” mentality which has resulted in rampant government waste and abuse. Every dollar the government wastes on duplicative programs and agencies could – and should – go back to your pockets for you to spend as you see fit. I look forward to working with our communities in the state and both parties in Washington to enact these bills into law."
