Yesterday, The House’s powerful Finance Committee moved forward on legislation that would cause mass layoffs of physicians and nurses and result in more than 12,000 people, including 500 to 800 children, losing their health care coverage.
Wednesday, the House approved a bill freezing funding for schools.
Tuesday, lawmakers approved a bill that “removes compulsory school attendance for children.”
The Republican-controlled Senate approved pension-reform legislation that increases health care costs and raises the retirement age for public workers.
House members passed an amendment to the state Constitution “to bypass a Supreme Court decision ordering the state to pay for the cost of an adequate education for every public schoolchild.”
So, just to summarize, in New Hampshire, Republicans are cutting taxes on cigarettes, cutting health coverage for 12,000 people (including women and children), freezing funding for schools, making school attendance voluntary, increasing health care costs for public employees, raising retirement age for public employees and bypassing a Supreme Court ruling saying that each state must pay for the education of each child in that state.
In New Hampshire Republicans want you to be stupid and to die sooner than later.
