GrokTV Special Interview: Pam Tucker-RNC Committeewoman Candidate. Question 8 – Republicans have said that they have eliminated regulations; got that list?

In addition to seeking to be the next RNC Committeewoman, Pam Tucker has something that her opponent cannot claim to have: experience as the current Deputy Speaker of the NH House where she has been intimately involved with policy and the legislation.  One of the claims this session is that the Republicans have been concentrating on fiscal matters and making NH more biz friendly even as the media is hyping the social issues (to which my retort is “there is ALWAYS a fiscal cost to every social issue!”).  So, I challenged Pam: “show me the list!”

A couple days later, she sent the list – take a look after the jump!

Previous questions:

  • Q4 – Why vote for you over your opponent?
  • Q5 –  What part of the NH GOP Platform is in danger and why should people rally around it?
  • Q6 – How verbose will you be in defending Republican ideals as Committeewoman during the election season?
  • Q7 – As RNC Committeewoman, how can you sharpen the diferences between Republican and Democrat positions?
