|House Republicans and Friends Across New Hampshire,|
This week, House Republicans stood up for YOU. To name just a few of our accomplishments, House Republicans passed an increase on the Education Freedom Accounts income cap, upheld your Second Amendment rights, and defeated a barrage of attacks on housing providers. Meanwhile, our friends on the other side of the aisle (including their leadership) voted to ban your gas-powered car and tried to stick you with a nearly billion dollar carbon tax.
I was particularly alarmed by the fact that the House Democratic Leader, Deputy Leader, Leader Pro Tempore, and Deputy Floor Leader all voted for a ban on gasoline powered cars. This extremist legislation would shackle Granite Staters to unelected California bureaucrats and force us to adopt whatever rules they desire. Not only would this bill increase the fees to register your car, but would also impose tens of thousands of dollars of fines on vehicle manufacturers who do not meet these extremist standards. It is truly ironic that during the debate on this bill, House Democrats tried to claim that it would enable the free-market. Only in today’s Democratic party would the “free market” be considered forcing car companies to produce compliant vehicles by threatening them with fines.
But this raises a question, if so many of the House Democratic Leadership voted for this bill to let California write New Hampshire law, are these members really here for Granite Staters or are they there for their big-dollar out of state liberal special interests.
This week was a reminder that when our members show up for their constituents, we break through the noise and deliver results. However, we need your support now more than ever. Whenever you see one of our caucus members, recognize the importance that each one of them has to Republican wins and encourage them that they are fighting every day for you and your families. Then, when election season inevitably comes back around, remind your friends of the results that we have delivered and all of the ruin that the Democrats have attempted to bring.
Our caucus is persisting in spite of our razor-thin majority. I hope that we continue to earn your support and that you send us some much needed backup when you vote for more Republican State Representatives in 2024.
All the best,
Jason Osborne, House Majority Leader
