NHDP Statement on Sununu’s Budget Address

Concord, N.H. - Today, Chris Sununu laid out his budget that is full of empty promises and leaves hard-working families behind. In response, NHDP Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement: “Massive federal support delivered by our Congressional delegation is helping hold up New Hampshire’s economy and Chris Sununu’s budget. And thank goodness, because once again, Chris Sununu is focusing on his short-term political future instead of the long-term needs of New Hampshire. “He unveiled a budget full of empty promises that leaves hard-working families behind and will leave future generations of New Hampshire struggling to catch up. Let’s be clear about what Sununu’s budget does -- It offloads state responsibilities onto the backs of already overburdened local property taxpayers -- including struggling Main Street small businesses -- for the benefit of out-of-state corporate special interests. His so-called paid family and medical leave proposal does more for insurance companies than Granite Staters, and his budget cuts education funding to local schools. Sununu’s budget didn’t include specifics about how he plans to support the Department of Children, Youth & Families, increase staff at nursing or long-term care facilities, or make college tuition more affordable. “Meanwhile, Democrats continue to put forward legislation that will actually help Granite Staters -- like a real paid family leave plan, increased education funding, and property tax relief. But unfortunately, Sununu has made it very clear that he is not interested in bipartisanship or delivering for working families. “Time and time again, Sununu pays lip service to the issues that impact everyday Granite Staters, but he only ever delivers for his friends, his family, and his special interest donors.”
