New Officers Elected

Members and Friends of the MRC

I have the honor of being the newly elected Chairman of the Milford Republican Committee. I wanted to let everyone know what my goals are for the MRC.

I first want to thank this past terms officers for all their hard work. Your efforts are greatly appreciated. I especially wanted to thank Andy Seale for his service and dedication to the town of Milford.

Our local Republican victories in the past election give us that perfect record to maintain and build upon. Even with a typically smaller mid-term election turn out, over 2500 Milford residents cast votes for our Republican slate. I am encouraged by these numbers, and my priority for 2015 will be to increase our committee’s membership and meeting attendance. I need you to help, so remember: “recruit your neighbor” and spread the word!

Generating interest in your committee is no small task. So my plan is to have a bit more exciting additions to the typical meeting. We will invite those involved in our current local issues to address our group. I also plan on some “interesting educational speakers” if available. When we grow our membership, we grow our committee’s local effectiveness.

The focus for 2016 will be on increasing our fund raising efforts. You are aware this will be a big election year, and keeping our local representation in the Republican camp is your committee’s primary goal. Successful events that we attend or produce ourselves keep our candidates in the public’s eye, and help fund their successful campaigns.

Two short reminders:

Next meeting is Saturday February 28th at 9:00 AM Chapanga’s Restaurant

2015 dues must be paid by the close of the February meeting to remain a member in good standing.

Thank you all, I look forward to seeing everyone at the February meeting,

Mark Biggie
Chairman MRC

NHGOP: Dems Should Denounce Internet Tax

NHGOP CALLS ON NH DEMS TO DENOUNCE OBAMA’S INTERNET SALES TAX BILL

Also Blasts Speaker Norelli For Leading Organization That Supports It

Concord – New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Jennifer Horn called on New Hampshire Democrats to reject President Obama’s endorsement of a disastrous internet sales tax bill (AP, 4/22). The National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) has also endorsed the legislation. New Hampshire House Speaker Terie Norelli serves as the president of the NCSL.

“The internet sales tax bill endorsed by President Obama will hit consumers with higher prices and burden New Hampshire small business owners with onerous new regulations. It is a disastrous piece of legislation that would hurt the Granite State and empower states with a sales tax to grow government by taking more money out of the pockets of working families.”

“Governor Hassan, Senator Shaheen, Congresswoman Kuster and Congresswoman Shea-Porter have refused to stand up for their constituents and actively oppose this legislation. It is time for them to denounce President Obama’s endorsement of this sales tax bill and join Senator Ayotte in the fight to protect New Hampshire small business owners and middle class families.”

“Furthermore, it is a disgrace that the National Conference of State Legislatures has also endorsed this legislation given that this organization is led by NH House Speaker Terie Norelli. By supporting this bill, Speaker Norelli has turned her back on New Hampshire and sided with out of state politicians who are desperate to collect more sales tax revenue. The speaker’s actions are shameful and speak volumes about the priorities of the House Democrat leadership.”

GOP Members of Joint Health Care Oversight Committee Call Out Governor Hassan on Broken Promises and Lack of Transparency

GOP Members of Joint Health Care Oversight Committee Call Out Governor Hassan on Broken Promises and Lack of Transparency

Concord, NH – Republican members of the Joint Health Care Reform Oversight Committee today issued the following statements after disclosure from Governor Hassan’s office as well as the Department of Insurance that her administration would no longer be pursuing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the federal government with regards to the implementation of the Health Care Exchange Partnership as was originally promised to the committee last month. The Hassan Administration has instead indicated an intention to move forward with the proposed partnership without an agreed upon MOU.

Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Andy Sanborn (R-Bedford) said:

“The Governor’s suggestion that she can single-handedly implement ObamaCare in New Hampshire without a contract or MOU of how the federal government is going to take over providing insurance to New Hampshire citizens is astonishing. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) will forever change how insurance is provided to the people of this state and the Governor’s office is now deliberately pulling back on a promise to be transparent and disrespecting the legislative process. This act of purposefully withholding details on ACA implementation only further suggests the Governor and Washington bureaucrats do not want the legislature, taxpayers, or small business owners to know the details or costs of this expansion. New Hampshire government does not operate under the cover of darkness, and the Governor needs to bring an MOU to the Oversight Committee, as promised, showing a complete, detailed plan of how she intends to implement this costly venture.”

Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro) said:

“I am extremely disappointed that, after promising legislative oversight, Governor Hassan is seemingly reneging on that promise. I am concerned a Health Care Exchange partnership will not protect taxpayers, will increase consumer confusion, and subvert New Hampshire sovereignty. Those concerns are heightened when it appears the Governor’s office is choosing to not layout the next steps of this process in a MOU as they had earlier indicated they would.”

Representative John Hunt (R-Cheshire 11) said:

“After listening to the presentation from the Executive Branch, I conceded to considering the state enter into a partnership exchange to protect New Hampshire’s interests, specifically because the Governor’s office committed to providing an MOU to our committee which would provide complete details on how the ACA would be implemented. Now that the Governor has refused to share an MOU, the people of this state have no idea on the cost, timing, affects and options associated with how the exchange, partnership and plan management will be enacted and operated. It is exceptionally disturbing to see the Governor attempt to implement the ACA, void of real, honest transparency on this important issue and I do hope the Governor reconsiders such a reckless action knowing how much money, time and effort is at stake here.”

Note: The next meeting of the Joint Health Care Reform Oversight Committee is scheduled for Tuesday, April 9th at 8:00AM.
