Letter: Disingenuous vote from Forrester on gas tax

Sunday, April 13, 2014

What a bumpy ride! The 4-cent state gasoline tax increase was passed by the Senate, but with no help from my senator, Jeanie Forrester. Her newsletter explaining why she was opposed was disingenuous at best. The increase doesn’t provide enough, only $32 million, she says, for the highway fund to overcome its operating shortfall. Forrester opposed the original plan to increase New Hampshire’s … 1

Letter: Obama’s fault

Sunday, October 6, 2013

The partial government shutdown is President Obama’s political theater intended to intimidate Republicans into ending their opposition to Obamacare, continued reckless spending, Obama’s job-killing policies and Obama’s appointment of radical left-wingers to key government positions.
