HB628 Was Never About Creating a Family Medical Leave Insurance Program.

Since late 2017, leading up to today, we’ve written or shared at least twenty-three articles opposing HB628, the so-called Family Medical Leave Act. This makes (at least) twenty-four. Why so many? Until very recently neither the governor nor Republican Majority leadership had made a noise that wasn’t fawning. And while a recent joint committee vote …

Sununu: Can’t Support HB628 (Family Medical Leave Bill) “As Written” – But I Want More

Governor Chris Sununu has informed the State Senate Finance Committee looking at HB628 that as written he won’t support it. “I cannot support HB 628 until a comprehensive actuarial analysis is conducted,” … That’s not a rejection of the idea of a state mandate but niggling over details. A point he affirms later in the …

Even the Republicans are LYING about the Paid Family Medical Leave (HB628)

In addition to checking the verbiage of a new bill, always check the “Fiscal Note” part of the analysis – how much is this going to cost tax payers. I long ago posted what the Medicaid Expansion was eventually going to cost us as Obamacare is wound down. And now, the NH GOP elected officials …

House Votes on HB628 Today – NH’s Obama-Care Mini-Me Mandate [Updated]

Update: The House did not get to HB628 today. That means the vote is tomorrow. It also means you have another opportunity to reach out (politely) to your reps about this awful, terrible, legislation. HB628 has changed, but it’s still a lousy bill. And the New Hampshire House is voting on it (again) today. Take …

From my stack of stuff: well, wasn’t Charle McMahon a bit smug and condescending?

This is left over from the Windham (NH) Primary debate where one of the moderators was Ken Eyring – one of the most gentle, self-controlled, and smartest guys I know.  Always prepared, always does his homework; he was treated rather badly by one of the candidates in the debate: RINO, Charlie McMahon (an incumbent Republican). …

Apparently, Vicki Schwaegler didn’t like the information I included in rejecting the Biomass veto effort

That would be here due to the news that she actively politicking on overriding Gov. Sununu’s veto override on SB 365 and SB 446 instead of recusing herself from the efforts due to her family’s landholding. I was told that she decided to run again (originally she wasn’t) in no small amount due to getting the …

Republican elected officials demanding overrides on SB 365 and 446 so that taxpayers have to pay more

So why are NH State Senators Bob Guida and Kevin Avard (among others, like Jeb Bradley – and hasn’t he monkey’d with our electrical enough to realize what a total hash he’s made of it?) throwing mains pillars of the Platform into a woodchipper? From the NH Constitution: [Art.] 2.
