I see the opinion press is full of “thank you” notes to NH’s junior Senator.
She is being thanked for her votes against this thing and that, like aid to those hardest hit by hurricane Sandy.
As we approach the ridiculous “sequestration” that will mess up our economy, I’d like to point out that Sen. Kelly Ayotte has played a major (if scripted) leadership role in making that happen.
I know many of my neighbors in the Upper Valley got banged up in the economic downturn left by the Bush Administration. Those folks are about to get clobbered again because the Republicans demand such devastating cuts, and no increase in taxes on the well-to-do. Republican economic policy is frankly criminal.
Sen. Ayotte has also hitched her star to the “Benghazi Brigade," the group of Republican Senators that now proposes to tie up the President’s appointments to critical national security positions.
For her behavior I feel neither gratitude nor respect.
