We all failed the people of New Hampshire

Some people criticized the NH Legislature this year for spending too much time on social issues while not paying enough attention to the budget. At least one State Representative agrees. Kris Roberts, D - Keene, put it this way in a letter to the Keene Sentinel:
Published: Friday, July 24, 2009

The N.H. General Court spent a great deal of time this session on many social issues, such as the death penalty, transsexual discrimination, medical marijuana, marriage equality and numerous important personal social issues. While such issues deserve public attention, one must ask: Was this the time?

It seemed like very little time was spent on the budget, as New Hampshire was being repeatedly hit with rough economic waves that not only threaten our financial future but our standard of living and quality of life. I believe that the people elected us to address the needs of the state. If it meant that passing a realistic budget was the only issue on the agenda, so be it. (
