GrokTV Special Interview: Rep. John Hikel for NH Senate – Question 8 – Created in the House but what happened in the Senate?

One of the very puzzling (and often, very frustating) things that has happened this session between the NH House and the NH Senate is the amount of bills passed by overwhelmingly by the supermajority of Republican in the House getting tabled or voted down by the supermajority of Republicans in the NH Senate.  GraniteGrok asked John about this and what the overall feeling was, especially on hot-button issues; the question:

Created in the House but what happened in the Senate?

Previous Questions:

  • Question 1– Has it been everything you thought in the House?  glad you put the time in?  Best part of being a Rep.?

  • Question 4 – Why step up to the NH Senate
  • Question 5 – What is your platform?
  • Question 6 – What is your reaction to “All social issues have fiscal costs”?
  • Question 7– Contrast the Occupy Wall Street movement with the TEAParty movement

Co-founder of GraniteGrok, my concern is around Individual Liberty and Freedom (and how Government is taking that away from us). My fight, from a Conservative (with small “L” libertarian leanings) and evangelical Christian perspective, is with the Progressives that are forcing a collectivized and secular humanistic future upon us. As TEA Party activist, citizen journalist (and pundit!), my goal is to use the New Media to advance the radical notions of America’s Founders back into our culture again.
