New Hampshire’s Budget Deficit, Blame President Bush
Governor John Lynch was handed a Democrat majority in all branches of government in New Hampshire in November of 2006. This was the first time that Democrats had control of all branches in over one hundred years.
It took the Democrats exactly one year to bankrupt the state as we face a $50 million budget shortfall. Governor Lynch was warned as he based his budget on inflated revenue projections that New Hampshire could not sustain an increase in spending of 17.5%. He did not listen to those evil, children hating Republicans.
With the downturn in the economy, the New Hampshire Democrats are now doing what any self-respecting Democrat would do in this situation- blame president Bush. New Hampshire Democrats are saying that George Bush’s economy is slowing down and now New Hampshire has to pay for it.
Democrats raised taxes by $100 million dollars and we are still going to fall short, this is the president’s fault? The truth is Governor Lynch was warned his revenue projections were way off and he didn’t listen.
New Hampshire still faces an unaccounted for $400 million bill for Lynch’s education plan, where is that money coming from?
