Dirty Dan Feltes Says Sununu Lied About Paid Family Leave – But Dirty Dan is the Liar

Dirty Dan Feltes

Chris Sununu supports some sort of legisaltive action on the issue-du-jour of Paid Family Leave. On this, we disagree. And we couldn’t disagree if he wasn’t trying, which he is. Which means Democrat Sen. Dan Feltes claims Sununu lied – is a lie.

From Dirty Dan’s email dated Thursday, May 9th, claims that,

Governor Sununu just vetoed paid family and medical leave. After campaigning in support of paid family leave in both 2016 and 2018 it’s now clear Sununu wasn’t honest and just told people what they wanted to hear.

Dirty Dan Feltes says Sununu made campaign promises but did nothing.  This is not just a lie; it’s a bad lie.

The last session the Republicans pushed a paid family leave bill, with the full-throated support of Democrats (or maybe I have that backward). The bill required people to opt out instead of in, it was confusing, and it had a mandatory payroll tax. An income tax. Mr. Sununu, who supports government paid family leave interventions said he couldn’t support that version for those reasons. It failed to make it out of the Legislature after that.

This session Mr. Sununu introduced a paid family leave plan I labeled the two-state solution. It is a coordinated pooling effort that included New Hampshire and Vermont in the interest of improving pricing and options. The Governor proposed a paid family leave plan! Democrats called it a stunt and panned it. Instead, they pushed their version of the bill that they knew Mr. Sununu had already publicly opposed.

Why would Democrats, if they were serious about providing a paid family leave plan, push a version they know would never survive a veto?

The “playing politics” that Dirty Dan Feltes tries to place at the feet of Mr. Sununu.

Instead of working with the Governor to find a solution both sides could agree on they proposed a deal guaranteed to fail so they could…write emails accusing him of lying.

Was Democrat Dirty Dan hoping the New Hampshire media would ignore reality and let him make his accusations uncontested?

That didn’t work out, did it?

Dirty Dan Feltes is the liar and so is anyone else who parrots him.

Friends —

Governor Sununu just vetoed paid family and medical leave. After campaigning in support of paid family leave in both 2016 and 2018 it’s now clear Sununu wasn’t honest and just told people what they wanted to hear.

This is why so many people don’t like politics. Politicians — regardless of their last name or where they come from — should actually work for the people, should keep their campaign promises, and should tell the truth.

Governor Sununu has done none of that on paid family and medical leave, and he’s left working families and small businesses to fall further and further behind.

We are not done. We are going to continue this fight because Granite Staters are counting on us. We need to hold Governor Sununu accountable.

Can you chip in to hold Governor Sununu accountable?

Thanks

Dan
