(February 6, 2014) - In response to Governor Maggie Hassan's State of the State address today, Matthew Murphy, Executive Director for Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, made the following statement:
"Today, Governor Hassan presented her State of the State address where she set her agenda for the 2014 legislative session. In this address, the governor advocated for job-killing, tax-and-spend policies such as increasing the minimum wage and expanding Medicaid as proscribed by a failing Obamacare. She also pushed for efforts to restrict the second amendment rights of New Hampshire citizens.
"The agenda the governor advocated for today will only serve to stifle economic growth, personal freedoms, and tie New Hampshire to the ongoing federal policy disaster that is Obamacare. Granite Staters deserved more than more failed policies that will continue to divide our state and send us on a path towards a sales or income tax."
