Republicans’ Leadership Delivers Relief to Granite Staters

Concord, NH- House Majority Leader Jason Osborne (R-Auburn) released the following statement after the House passed HB2023, making appropriations to the department of energy for a state emergency fuel assistance program and a supplemental electric benefit, and relative to the electric low-income program fund on a voice vote.

“Due to no fault of their own, many Granite Staters who have not previously needed assistance, may find themselves unable to pay their bills this winter and do not qualify for the federal assistance programs. We want to ensure those people have some help. Thanks to sound fiscal management and responsible leadership, we have created a favorable economic environment that has resulted in a revenue surplus. We believe using this surplus to assist households heat their homes this winter is the right thing to do.”

“Let me be completely clear: we would not be in this situation if it were not for gross mismanagement and failed policies by the Biden Administration, and complete inaction by Maggie Hassan, Chris Pappas, and Ann Kuster. Heating and electric costs are anticipated to rise to catastrophic levels. Although we cannot reverse the federal government’s decisions from Concord, we are doing what we can to help Granite Staters make it through the winter while also easing the tax burden on municipalities’ welfare programs. Washington must wake up and realize the devastating effects their policies are having on Americans.”

Reaction to Biden Address

House Republicans and Friends Across New Hampshire,

Last night, our country watched as President Joe Biden had the gall to use taxpayer money to make a speech about how any dissent against his agenda is a threat to the country. To make it worse, Biden was surrounded by members of the military and surrounded by red lighting. It is ironic that while he pretends to care about unity and democracy, he stood amid grim red lighting and flanked by the military while pounding his fists about how Republicans are a threat. After all of the virtue signaling from the Left about tolerance and getting along, we add these brazen displays to a laundry list of ways in which the Democrat party has openly declared war on Americans who express even the smallest amount of objection to their radical agenda.

Our caucus will not be intimidated by Joe Biden’s attempts to scare us into submission. As the Biden administration continues their attempts to trample on our freedoms every single day, I renew my promise that the House Republican Caucus will continue to stand up so that our basic freedoms and individual liberty will remain protected. As you prepare to vote in the upcoming election, remember this image and what the Democrat Party thinks of you. 

Finally, as a reminder, State Offices will be closed on Monday, September 5th 2022 in observance of Labor Day.
All the best, Jason Osborne, House Majority Leader
