Latest TV Ad: Hassan's Budget is Hurting New Hampshire

It is a fact that New Hampshire has been engulfed in a tragic heroin epidemic for months. More Granite Staters are now dying from drug overdoses than car accidents, suicides, and homicides. Regrettably, Governor Maggie Hassan made the decision to veto a fiscally responsible budget that would have provided the resources communities needed to fight the epidemic. It was an irresponsible decision that has needlessly stalled the resources necessary for drug treatment, prevention, and recovery.
Governor Maggie Hassan needs to stop playing politics with the lives of New Hampshire citizens. Granite Staters are suffering as a result of her veto. It is time for our state's chief executive to finally do the right thing and sign the state budget.

Home Healthcare Providers are Concerned: They Call for an Override of Hassan's Veto
As reported by the Associated Press, home healthcare providers are urging Democrats to override Governor Maggie Hassan's budget veto if a compromise isn't reached by next week. The Legislature returns September 16th to take up the governor's vetoes.

Gina Balkus, chief executive of the Home Care Association of New Hampshire, is saying that the budget impasse is hurting seniors who need help to stay in their homes. The budget that Governor Maggie Hassan vetoed included a 5% rate increase for providers and $1.8 million in back payments.

Back in June, Balkus said that the budget passed by the Legislature, which was then vetoed by Governor Maggie Hassan, was "really, from our perspective, the best budget we've seen in years ... we hope our needs don't get lost in the political fray that results from a veto."

Iran Nuke Deal: Ayotte will Vote Against it
U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte said on Wednesday that she will oppose the Iran nuclear deal when the U.S. Senate begins debating it.

"I believe this agreement has many flaws," Ayotte said in an interview with the New Hampshire Union Leader. "The agreement is not one that will protect our national security."

Regrettably, U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen has announced that she will vote for the deal.
