‘Maggie’s Tax of the Day’ reaches #40
With exactly two weeks until Election Day, Ovide Lamontagne’s campaign has hit tax hike number forty that Maggie Hassan voted in favor of during her time in the New Hampshire state Senate. Today’s increase deals with insurance premiums, and Hassan’s vote to reinstate the tax on premiums.
“Businesses in New Hampshire were set to see a reduction of their insurance premium tax from 1.25% of net premiums down to a flat 1% on January 1, 2012,” read this morning’s press release. “Unfortunately, as a part of the Special Session budget in 2010, the one needed to fix Sen. Hassan’s disastrous first budget attempt in 2009, Sen. Hassan voted to repeal that reduction and businesses continue to pay the increased rate.”
