Sen. Ayotte's Devastating Actions Need to Change

It's time both our Senator's began to work for their constituents, not against them.

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.

Ms. Prince, Those posters are no more gulity or immature than the ones on your side of the aisle. Angry? Quite the contrary. I am happy and amused to sit back watch your immature and hypocrital "response" against posters of opposite opinions based on what they use as a moniker as last rebuttal in debate. I also don't get "angry" if you or anyone else do not agree with me and would never go to the point of trying to silence posters with different opinions by taunting and bullying them for their choice of moniker use. For all we know they may not be teenagers as some teenagers act like adults and some adults act like teenagers. Ms. Prince the difference between my philosophy and yours, is quite simple. If I don't like or agree with a poster, I respect their right to post it. I don't try to silence them by going after trivial things like thier monikers. If you don't like or agree with a poster you will do anything, no matter how trivial to silence them . Kinda like "Mom make him stop staring at me". "Mom, he called me a name!"

Whatever makes you feel better Hilltoper. Tell yourself whatever works. You are free to ignore my posts as well and you don't; but yet so much judgement.

Ms. Prince No judgement by me, just facual observations of your hypocritical behavior, which it appears that it "works" for you. Judgement can be by others or yourself.

Mike; You speak of FDR like He was someone you admire but you spit on him with your balderdash and BS against his very principles and good works.

There is way more than fear on its own to fear. I would Gladly take you and yours for a dance with the devil himself if it means that I protect my country and President from ignorant propagandist such as your self. That doesn't bother to check your facts.Thats a promise. I'm rightly pissed that all the money I put in Social Security was stolen by bought off thieving Republicans bent on destroying our country and killing off our children. You're worried about them taking your guns and forcing you to pay taxes. It's not them you need to worry about peeling your weapons from you cold dead hands. It's your own that can't wait to shoot you in the back and steal your living.
