NHGOP launches web site chiding Hassan's 'House of Cards' budget plan
Ratcheting up its attacks on the Democratic governor and her decision to include $80 million in casino licensing fee revenue in her proposed fiscal 2014-2015 budget, the NHGOP has put up NHBudget.com, which urges visitors to "sign the petition for a balanced budget today."
"She has built a fiscally irresponsible house of cards that could collapse at any moment," the web site says.
GOP chair Horn said, "Governor Hassan is gambling with New Hampshire's future and constructing a fiscally irresponsible house of cards that could collapse at any minute. Her proposal is so reckless that even prominent Democrats including Attorney General Michael Delaney and House Finance Chairman Mary Jane Wallner are speaking out against it and call her plan a 'mistake.'
"New Hampshire deserves a governor who is willing to show leadership and propose a responsible budget that does not rely on phony, fraudulent and illegal gambling revenue to balance our books," Horn says. "Republicans are committed to exposing the devastating impact of the governor's budget and proposing real solutions to preserve the state's fiscal integrity and maintain the New Hampshire Advantage."
