Dear Friend,

This week, Republicans in the legislature revealed what we've known about them for months now, that they've been playing political games with the state's budget and economy at the expense of Granite Staters.

Republican House Finance Chair Neal Kurk (Hillsborough- 02), admitted these actions in an interview with NHPR this week. When asked why the Republicans blocked funding to pay for road construction, he responded “some of it has to do with the fact that some of us believe that there are consequences to the Governor’s veto of the budget and one of them is that things that normally would have gotten done, will not get done, or will get delayed.”

Instead of working towards a compromise, the Republican legislature is set to return to Concord in a few weeks to try and override the Governor's veto of their reckless and irresponsible budget. In a poll released by WMUR, the numbers showed just how unpopular the actions of the Republicans in the State House are. 

The 2016 elections are just around the corner and its crucial that we have the resources and staff necessary to defeat the Republicans on the state level.Donate to the Committee to Elect House Democrats today to show that we are sick of the Republicans playing games with the lives of Granite Staters, and put us on the road to victory for 2016.
