NHDP Statement on Passage of Irresponsible Senate Republican Budget

Senate Republicans’ Unbalanced Budget Will Hurt Small Businesses And Middle Class Families, Take NH’s Economy Backward
Concord, N.H. – New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement on passage of the irresponsible Senate Republican budget:
“Today, Senate Republicans voted along party lines to pass an unbalanced budget that will hurt small businesses and middle class families, while taking New Hampshire’s economy backward.”
“Senate Republicans’ budget includes gimmicks that mean they’re not actually funding what they say they are. Not to mention that they’ve chosen to give big business tax giveaways instead of adequately funding critical economic priorities like substance misuse treatment and continuing our state’s successful Medicaid expansion program.”
“There is still time for Senate Republicans to finally put their partisanship aside and actually negotiate with Governor Hassan to pass a responsible budget that will move New Hampshire’s economy forward.”
