NHGOP STATEMENT ON SENATE HEALTH, EDUCATION AND HUMAN SERVICES COMMITTEE VOTE AGAINST REPEALING SCHOOL CHOICE 

Concord – New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement on the State Senate Health, Education and Human Services Committee vote against repealing school choice:

"Senate Republicans were right to recognize that education choice is about parents being able to find the best possible educational opportunities for their children, regardless of family income. Today’s vote will help to protect a law that has leveled the playing field, offering even our poorest students the opportunity to access the educational environment that is best for them.

"It is disgraceful that Governor Hassan has tried to destroy this valuable program as part of her irresponsible and reckless state budget. Her efforts display an elitist and callous disregard for the most vulnerable students in our community.

“Gov. Hassan is obsessed with limiting school choice. I am proud to see Senate Republicans are standing up for Granite State families by opposing her foolish attempts to repeal this popular and productive law.”

NHGOP STATEMENT ON THE PASSAGE OF THE HOUSE DEMOCRAT BUDGET 

Concord – New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on the passage of the House Democrat Budget: 

“The House Democrat’s irresponsible budget raises spending by over 10%, hikes taxes and fees by over $200 million and unloads $39 million in taxes on the backs of New Hampshire’s small businesses. During these difficult economic times, the last thing Democrats should do is to pass a budget that will kill jobs, hurt economicgrowth and take more money out of the pockets of working families.

“The disastrous budgets proposed by Governor Hassan and House Democrats blatantly disregard the traditional New Hampshire principles of low spending and limited taxation. They both include an unsustainable increase in spending that will grow government and lead our state down a path towards fiscal insolvency. 

“Governor Hassan and the House Democrat Leadership have both demonstrated that they are incapable of providing the type of sound fiscal stewardship that Granite Staters expect from their elected leaders in Concord. Instead of working to make state government more efficient and able to live within its means, they have decided to fund their irresponsible policies by placing an even larger burden on New Hampshire families and small businesses."

NHDP - What the GOP Won't Admit: Bradley-O'Brien Budget Left a Massive Deficit

NHDP Releases infographic highlighting massive Republican budget deficit

 

Concord - Despite their claims, House and Senate Republicans have no credibility when it comes to balancing New Hampshire's budget.  Even Republicans have been forced to admit, the 2011 Bradley-O'Brien budget downshifted millions of dollars onto property tax payers [Union Leader, 3/22/2011], raised millions in taxes [Youtube, 4/5/2011], made the largest cut to public higher education in American history [Nashua Telegraph, 8/12/2012], and still left a massive budget deficit according to the LBAO. [LBAO, 03/2013;  Nashua Telegraph, 3/7/2013

 

"It is fitting Republicans chose April Fool's Day to talk about the budget.  After the disastrous Bradley-O'Brien, they must be joking if they expect to be taken seriously," said Ray Buckey, Chair of the New Hampshire Democratic Party.  "Instead of resorting to baseless attacks and embarrassing hypocrisy, Republicans should share how they would fix the massive Bradley-O'Brien deficit.  What about the devastating education cuts?"

 

This morning the New Hampshire Democratic Party released an infographic on Facebook and Twitter to highlight the massive deficit left by the Republican Bradley-O'Brien budget.  The image can be seen below.

           

"Republicans need to acknowledge the damage caused by the Bradley-O'Brien budget," continued Buckley.  "Why should the people of New Hampshire take anything they have to say sincerely after their most recent budget killed hundreds of jobs, made the largest cut to public higher education in the American history, and left a massive deficit?"
