“My responsibility as a CEO of a multi-billion company is to ensure my customers and shareholders,” Havenstein said. “I’ve always been personally opposed to Obamacare. ... I am opposed to Obamacare and I think its implementation in New Hampshire has been nothing short of a disaster.”
Hemingway said he would propose a small number of gambling machines. And Smolin said casinos could be introduced into the state in a smart way and in doing so, would bring not just business to the casinos, but to the communities throughout the state from people traveling to and from a casino.
Havenstein said his 81517 plan would target tax, education and regulatory reform with a focus on job creation. The plan would create 25,000 new private jobs by 2017, he said.
Hemingway said his plan would lower the business tax for small business up to 42 percent.
“We have to be serious about breathing life back into our state and we do it by getting government out of the way,” Hemingway said.
