New Hampshire's Virtual Town Hall
Just wondering if you can tell the voting public about any accomplishments you have made while in the government. I wouldn't call letting 4 people be killed in Benghazi an accomplishment. If making 32 million dollars a year is an accomplishment then you really have something to talk about with the middle class. They can really relate to that! The fact that you haven't driven a car in 20 years also relates well to the middle class. Having multiple million dollar homes is right up the middle…Continue

Before I donate one penny, I want to hear Hilleary say she supports the Jewish State of Israel. I have already changed Party Affiliation to Independent, I know the Republicans support Israel and Obama is a Islamic Loving Muslim that hates Jews just like his Rev. Jeremiah Wright. For the record I do not stand with J Street.

The to and fro between the New Hampshire Legislature and Gov. Maggie Hassan continued this week with bill signings, a veto, the threat of a veto, and an override.
The override, the first of this legislative session, concerned a bill that would have permitted labels on alcohol bottles -- particularly beer bottles -- to feature the images of children.
The Legislature had passed HB 122…

Gov. Maggie Hassan is likely to veto legislation that would require people to live in New Hampshire for 30 days before they can vote in the state.
Hassan's office said Thursday she worries the bill will restrict people's constitutional right to vote. The comments from her office came after a coalition of Democratic lawmakers, election workers and the American Civil Liberties Union called the bill unconstitutional.…Continue

The state's announcement Tuesday that it awarded four licenses to open dispensaries — the only legal place to get marijuana under the law — marked a significant step forward.
But until the dispensaries open, patients who qualify can't get marijuana legally and are subject to prosecution if they're caught with marijuana bought elsewhere.…Continue

A law prohibiting New Hampshire voters from displaying their marked ballots on social media appeared in jeopardy Monday when a federal judge suggested that its only real effect is the suppression of free speech.
The restriction was added last year to prevent vote-buying and voter coercion, which prevailed mostly in the 1800s, before the adoption of secret ballots.…Continue

A very busy week at the State House in Concord saw the Senate pass an $11.3 billion budget, while Gov. Maggie Hassan was busy with her pen, signing and vetoing legislation.
The Senate vote was strictly partisan -- 14 Republicans for, 10 Democrats against -- in the approval of its two-year spending package. At $11.3 billion, it is more than $11.2 billion approved by the GOP-dominated House, but less than the $11.5 billion budget that had been recommended by the Democratic…

After hours of longwinded debate and more than a dozen failed floor amendments, the Senate voted 14-10 along party lines Thursday to pass a $11.3 billion budget.
The Senate proposal spends $99 million more than the House version but $66 million less than what the Governor proposed. A fact many Democrats were not shy to point out Thursday, including Sen. Lou D’Allesandro of Manchester.…Continue

The New Hampshire House is backing a bill that would require a person to live in the state for 30 days before they can vote.
Supporters of such legislation say they want to crack down on "drive by" voting to ensure people voting in New Hampshire elections actually live here.

The NH Senate Judiciary Committee is currently considering HB 287, a bill that would codify the right of members of the public to record audio or video of police officers during traffic stops. The bill has proven controversial not because some question whether citizens should have the right to film police, but because of arguments that HB 287 actually restricts the rights it is purportedly intended to protect. On May 14, the Live Free or Die…Continue
