CONCORD – The House Republican Alliance (HRA) today issued at statement on the proposed increase in the gas tax.
Last week a group in the state house came out in support of a proposed “indexed gas tax” that would allow the gas tax to continue to rise year after year with “zero legislative over-site”.
“There is no reason to raise a tax when New Hampshire has an adequate revenue stream,” Rep. JR Hoell- Dunbarton stated. “The issue regarding lack of funds to maintain our infrastructure is not a funding issue, nor even an inadequate revenue stream, the issue is the continued looting from this dedicated fund.”
“Increasing this tax will only hurt the families that need our help the most. This added tax burden during the winter will only force our most at risk citizens to cut back on other necessities like food and heat,” Rep. Pamela Tucker- Greenland states. “Before we start asking for more money we need to quit wasting almost 30% of the budget on functions prohibited by our constitution. The path forward is clear, rein in the abuse of this dedicated fund and start repairing the roads.”
The New London Police Chief was using his office and his access to young women (mostly from nearby Colby-Sawyer College) to barter with them into posing nude or in lingerie in exchange for getting their “charges” dropped. We’ve also learned that he has offered to pay their fines as well in exchange for posing for him.
Given his 27 years on the force I speculated (here and here) that this was probably something he’d been doing for a long time, that he might not have been the only one, and that more women would probably come forward after the first charges were announced; but that he’d get-off and be allowed to collect his pension without a criminal record.
ObamaCare (RACIST!) increases the cost of care. If you happen to be one of the folks with a lower premium ObamaCare will probably crank up your deductible and your annual out of pocket costs, to $10,000.00 or more per year.
There’s nothing affordable about that.
So we can’t keep our plan if we like it, many will not get to keep their doctors or hospitals-even if they like them, and– it is not affordable. It is the you can’t keep your plan or doctor unaffordable questionable if you will get care act. So are you ready for another punch in the face?
“When I took office, the American auto industry – the heartbeat of American manufacturing – was on the verge of collapse,” said Obama. “As president, I refused to let that happen. I refused to walk away from American workers and an iconic American industry.”
“Today, we’re closing the book by selling the remaining shares of the federal government’s investment in General Motors,” he added. “GM has now repaid every taxpayer dollar my Administration committed to its rescue, plus billions invested by the previous Administration.”
The Treasury Department has sold its final stake in General Motors, closing the book on its 2009 bailout of the auto industry. GM has been revived and is now profitable, but taxpayers are out more than $10 billion dollars.
Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced the final stock sale late Monday afternoon, saying that Treasury ultimately recouped $39 billion through the sale of shares, dividends and loan repayments since 2009. But the government pumped $49.5 billion into GM to help it get through a bankruptcy reorganization.
And let’s not forget that in supporting his union buddies, he stiffed the Sr. Bond holders – contra all normal financial / bond laws. But hey, he didn’t waste a crisis, did he?
Just $10 Billion buckaroos of our money – he’ll just print more. And another lie to lay on the pile.
From the Daily Mail (a UK paper that does a lot better on reporting edgy American news than most US papers):
The Affordable Care Act forces companies with more than 50 workers to buy them all health insurance or pay hefty fines
The IRS says volunteer firefighters are ‘employees,‘ even though the Department of Labor says they’re ‘volunteers’
Out of more than 1 million fire departments in the U.S., 87 per cent are staffed entirely or mostly by life-saving volunteers
Members of Congress are weighing in, but the Obama administration hasn’t taken any action yet to carve out a fire-fighting exception
Yup, pass it to see what’s in it, eh Madame Pelosi? Nice to see that this is gonna hit New Hampshire towns and hamlets HARD! But remember, you all voted in these Progressives – welcome to another agenda item FORWARD! Once again, our Godlets-in-DC are absolutely convinced that they know what’s best for us out here in the ‘sticks! Nice to see that not only is Obamacare effectively stripping us of healthcare insurance (what middle class family can afford to shell out $12,700 in deductibles on a $40,000 income? Effectively, they will HAVE NO insurance). Now, here’s the next shoe to fall in Obama’s plan to “fundamentally transform America”:
Now he’s about to strip us of home insurance. And that’s not all!
And Jeanne Shaheen and Paul Hodes and Carol Shea-Porter? And let’s not forget Annie “Benghazi-in-headlights” Kuster! They, too, believe that most NH town Fire Departments are optional – after all, there’s nothing in it for them, is there – NO Fire Unions with volunteers to man the phone banks and empty their wallets to make the Democrat campaigns flush with cash. Not only that… Read the whole thing!
Yup, just like the New Gas tax (get it – New Coke! New Gas Tax? Hopefully suffers the same death by embarrassment), now we get a new tax on the boats that “Every Man” can afford. I certainly can’t afford a 45 foot cruiser for whiling away lazy summer days – but I can afford a canoe, a real dinghy (rowboat), sailboat,or kayak (e.g., anything non-motorized). But now, yet another Republican NH State Senator (Bob Odell, R-Lempster) is proposing that you pay him $10 for each one you want to launch for a couple of lazy hours on the lake. I imagine that my Eldest (1 canoe, 2 kayaks) ain’t gonna be happy camper. Steve had the proper response here. From AFP/NH:
New Hampshire (AFP-NH) today called out a new, proposed $10 fee for all small, non-motorized boats such as canoes, kayaks and rowboats. According to today’s Eagle-Tribune, a bill, sponsored by Senator Bob Odell, would establish this new charge on these watercrafts in order to increase funding to the Department of Fish & Game.
“As the old adage goes, if you want more of something, you subsidize it, and if you want less of something, you tax it,” said Greg Moore, AFP-NH State Director. “This new Dinghy Tax would send a clear message that New Hampshire is more interested in growing government than promoting tourism and outdoor activities. Especially for those individuals who might come to our state for the day to row or paddle the Saco or Pemigewasset from Massachusetts, Maine or Vermont, this new tax would rip out the welcome mat, and cost our state millions in lost tourist revenue. This proposal is penny-wise and pound foolish at best and a triumph of short thinking bureaucratic logic.”
Ann Kuster, the Democrat Parties representative to Congressional District two in New Hampshire, got flummoxed after reading a question from a constituent about Benghazi. Here we see Klueless Kuster making Carol Shea-Porter look lucid.
Progressives have been clubbing health care in America like a baby Seal for decades and ObamaCare appears to have delivered the death blow they’ve been looking for. (And Medicaid expansion isn’t just a “kick em while they are down” side-show attraction. It’s a train wreck as well.)
But healthcare isn’t the only thing they are trying to ruin.
The “ObamaCare-it to death” template of destruction is the tool of choice for every item on the Democrat agenda and they’ve been using it for years.
Washington Times Now, little more than a year after the president’s re-election, his job approval rating has fallen among all segments of the American electorate. But it has fallen the most among those who did the most to elect him. For example, according to a new Gallup compilation, Obama’s job approval rating among Hispanic Americans [ Read more ]
Anyone heard a peep from NOH8 Kongress-Kritter Annie Kuster weeks into Peter Sullivan’s war on women against Marilinda Garcia? I confess to not looking all that hard but I don’t think Kongresswoman Kuster has demonstrated equality or fairness? She’s certainly not doing a very good job of redistributing the rhetoric. Wait. I get it. The [ Read more ]
Early on in this audio Dr. Garboyes, talking about Medicaid and the effort to expand it, brings up an essential point. The assumption by ObamaCare and Medicaid expansion advocates is that their solution will give you health care you both want and need.

Let’s be clear – it seems that for Progressives, politics drives their very being, and they pursue avidly. It fills their souls so much that they can’t begin to grok that when conservatives talk about religious values, progressives think that use of personal religion conscience is only a dodge from agreeing with something in the [ Read more ]

Democrats took over the Congress in 2006: November 2006, 145,534,000 Americans held jobs November 2013, 144,386,000 Americans held jobs. I think the “Blame Bush” mantra has now expired. (H/T: IJReview)
Yeah, and the NY Times keeps claiming that they are to be believed because of the “layers of fact checkers & editors” they have – we’ve seen how that’s worked out, huh?

I crossed the 40 year mark not long ago, and I work at a local successful eatery in the Lakes Region as a cook. I make 10.75/hr. Its woeful for sure. All businesses with regular employees have a fairly fixed labor cost that they need to work within. If it comes to pass that a [ Read more ]
