House budget plan good for NH, nation

Letter to the Editor

The Obama administration and Democrats in the Senate just don’t get it.

The president’s budget proposal for 2013 would continue the status quo – more spending, more debt, more taxes – and the Senate hasn’t passed a budget in more than 1,060 days.

Unlike the Senate, the House of Representatives has done its job and passed a fiscally sound and responsible proposal, which Rep. Frank Guinta, R-N.H., a member of the House Budget Committee, helped craft.

The House budget is known as “The Path to Prosperity” and that is exactly what it would be for New Hampshire and the nation.

Under the House plan, spending is reined in while our commitment to seniors is protected. Not only is spending kept in check, but the tax code is made simpler and fairer – freeing job creators to invest capital in new and existing businesses. Hiring would be spurred by this new investment, and demand would pick up because people are working again.

If only we had more action-oriented politicians in Washington like congressman Guinta, we could get much accomplished.
