Despite years of $1 trillion deficits and over $16 trillion in national debt, Rep. Carol Shea-Porter says that America isn’t broke.
“We watch television and they make it look as if (our country) is broke; we’re taking the very last dollar in the Treasury. That is not so,” said the congresswoman at a recent townhall meeting, per a web video from Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire.
A press release from the group further blasts Shea-Porter for recent comments regarding revenue, “which is code for higher taxes.”
In a column published to her official House website, the congresswoman wrote that “there is plenty of revenue to be found,” going on to say that America “desperately needs more revenue.”
“New Hampshire taxpayers know the problem isn’t that they are taxed too little, but that elected representatives like Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter are addicted to spending too much,” stated Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire spox Derek Dufresne.
