Did 458 People Vote Illegally in New Hampshire?

At least.

Could Oil Prices Remain Stable for Years to Come?

With America’s resurgence of energy infrastructure, oil shocks could be a thing of the past.

To sum up, oil prices stand neither to go up or down but remain steady, and that’s a good thing. More reliable petroleum delivery routes that bypass the Middle East reduce the ability of OPEC to artificially inflate oil prices.

Good for New Hampshire, good for America.

Fetal Homicide Bill Hearing Due in NH House

SB 66 Passed the State Senate and is now in the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee in the New Hampshire House.

If you want to see fetal homicide legislation pass in New Hampshire this year, you might want to send a friendly emailed nudge to the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee. Brief, polite, nothing cut-and-pasted: recommend Ought to Pass on SB 66, without weakening the bill’s language. You’ll certainly want to send an email if one of your own reps is on the committee (see the table below).  Keep Reading…

How About Repeal Without The Replace?

This is what I’m talking about. One Page to undo it all.

“Effective as of December 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111–148) is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted.”
