March 20

From The Chairman's Desk



We saw some shocking numbers coming out of Concord this week.

Let’s first start with 2,500 and 1,000. That’s the total miles of roads and total number of bridges, respectively, that the N.H. Department of Transportation would be forced to turnover to local communities to maintain if House Republicans have their way.

Even more disturbing than that is the number 37,000. That's the number of people enrolled in our bipartisan Medicaid expansion plan that would lose their coverage under New Hampshire Republicans' so-called "plan." Not to mention that Republicans have also proposed draconian cuts to other critical health priorities like mental health services, combating substance misuse, and programs for seniors (including meals on wheels).

Add in the thousands of Granite State students who will be affected if Republicans succeed in cutting funds for the university system and you can get the sum of just how disastrous the budget cuts GOP lawmakers are proposing will be.

From North Conway to Nashua and Manchester, Granite Staters are speaking out against these irresponsible and dangerous cuts. Each of us needs to add our voices to theirs and make it clear that we will not stand for these misguided and reckless cuts to our critical economic priorities.

Thank you,

Raymond Buckley, Chair
New Hampshire Democratic Party

P.S. In case you aren’t disgusted enough with House Republicans, don't miss this story about certain GOP representatives mocking a group of 4th graders (while also attacking Planned Parenthood).
