NHDP - Statement on Passage of the Irresponsible Jasper-O’Brien Budget

Concord, N.H. – New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement on passage of the irresponsible Jasper-O’Brien budget:
“To gain the support of Bill O’Brien and the Koch Brothers, House Republicans passed a budget today that is so extreme that even the Republican House Finance Chair admitted that our state would suffer if it were actually enacted.”
“Voters will not stand for the fiscally irresponsible Jasper-O’Brien budget that empties the state’s rainy day fund, raids dedicated funds, slashes critical economic priorities for small businesses and middle class families, and downshifts costs onto local property taxpayers.”
“Kelly Ayotte, Chris Sununu and New Hampshire Republicans up and down the ticket will be held accountable in 2016 for endorsing the reckless Jasper-O’Brien budget that would take our state backward.”
