Must make RD happy to see all these new tax and spend measures. Liberals never see a tax and spend package they do not like.

Of course, there are the few Reps. like to tax and spend.

This list was compiled with the aid of your tax dollars.

Thanks to some Republican allies at the State House I have a fairly complete list of taxes and fees to work from for the upcoming election.

As usual he tried to throw it back at the GOP. He ignores what's happening in Washington with Reid and Pelosi and I;m sure he'll find a way to blame the GOP for their disasters too.

No RD???

YOU are unbelievable. It does not matter where the list of tax increases have come from. What matters is the the incredible amount of money that the newly elected body of representatives have decided to take from the people.

RD???

Doctor???

Do you have anything to say about the incredible increase in the confiscation of more money from the people by the democratic govenor, senate and reps or are you going to focus on where the release of where the information came from?

RD??? You sir/madam are a fraud.

Okay... Why don't you tell us all about the increases in fees by the Fish and Game Department, how they came about, and where they're going? (You might want to wait til the morning, though.)

What a control freak! Now we won't discuss National Politics. I love how you guys divided this up so now you can refuse to answer questions as it suits you. What a joke some of you are.

Yeah, that $0.003 per hour that we pay our state legislators. (Many of whom are overpaid.)

Of course the list was compiled with the help of the GOP - do you seriously think that New Hampshire Democrats are dumb enough to brag about how much they've jacked up taxes and spending in New Hampshire?

Specifically it was Jim Rivers and Paul Smith who compiled it. Does this somehow make them bad people or somehow make the list any more defendable?
