About a week ago I went to the Exeter Chamber of Commerce, as advertised to its members, as an LLC information meeting with the guest speaker our one and only local senator. I was truly interested to see what was going through the liberal’s heads when they pushed an income tax on 45,000 LLC’s in NH. Knowing that the tax magnet was going to be the guest speaker I was curious.
I’m still curious because instead of explaining the changes she was trying to defend them. Then the speech degenerated into a Senator Maggie campaign speech about how wonderful the liberals are and all the wonderful things they have accomplished. Our local senator touched on about everything from health care, health care delivery, the RGGI tax on our electric bill, insulation of homes; the list goes on and on. It was about a 2 hour campaign speech.
On two occasions people either asked questions that she couldn’t answer or made the statement, in a very polite manner, that her information was not accurate; OH, OH, BUSTED. An indirect admission that she didn’t know what she was doing when she pushed this through. What a surprise??
I still did not get any information that helped me to understand exactly what they did and why. Only a designated attempt to smooth over what was done in the hopes you wouldn’t hold it against her in the next election. I would hate to live in a house with all the mirrors painted so I didn’t have to look at myself in shame.
I did call the chamber presidents office a few days later and left the message that most of the information the tax magnet put out was wrong and we could bring down a senator or two to address the chamber on the facts of what the LLC will do and how it was done. I’m still waiting for a return call.
I am waiting for a friend to return from a trip to invite him and any other senator who wants to come to Exeter to set the record straight and we will find a place to meet.
I am disappointed in the Exeter Chamber for not making an attempt at being fair and balanced in the information their members get.
