Letter: Roberts vs. O’Brien | Concord Monitor: “Already, New Hampshire House Speaker Bill O’Brien is displaying his two leading characteristics: He does not think, and he does not care. He is already stating that New Hampshire will not accept the Medicaid funds that will expand health care coverage to hundreds of thousands of New Hampshire residents. Almost all of this will be paid for by the federal government, so refusing to take it has one obvious result: The people who would have received good health care coverage will get none. In addition, when all those people need care and go to emergency rooms and hospitals, we all pay. O’Brien’s statement that we will not take the federal funds is fiscally idiotic. It also shows that he does not care.
Is this what you want? Think carefully, and reconsider whether you want to support O’Brien and his cohort. Instead, behave like the chief justice: think, and make the best decision, not one just on political lines, and show compassion for all those who do not have health care coverage.”
Letter: Obama is right | Concord Monitor: “President Obama understands that many Americans are still hurting, and he knows they are looking for real solutions.
Investing in our teachers, firefighters and police officers and standing by our small businesses, manufacturers and veterans will make a difference now and in the long term for our economy.
We cannot go back to the policies that destroyed our economy and hurt the middle class – huge tax breaks for the wealthy and fewer rules for Wall Street.”

Re-elect president, invest in America, – NashuaTelegraph.com: “He has done well meeting his responsibility to shareholders and has been rewarded for it. This is the world of capitalism; there is no other priority but profit.
Remember, though, if you are not a corporate shareholder, you are the expendable labor supporting profit. Massachusetts knows what this means.
Is this the Republican Party’s view of America? Their shareholders are contributors from corporations, banking and financial firms, not the American people. Business cares not where it makes a profit; jobs are “off-shored” or wages fall.
Since the mid-1970s, this continues to cost us. We paid for the North American Free Trade Agreement, a bailout of Wall Street and much more with no benefit.
Why was the Keystone XL pipeline project not approved? “We, the people,” would end up paying again. I’ve checked.”
If you think he’s joking, think again – NashuaTelegraph.com: “It is expected that right after the November elections, Congress will move to greatly increase the national debt limit.
This will allow for taxpayer funding of the huge Wall Street bonuses. Clearly, the banks and investment houses will go bust if they have to continue to foot the bill.
The voter ID laws will be expanded to require that voters provide dental X-rays in order to verify their identity. This is because of the humongous voter fraud problem that is believed to stretch all across America.
Instead of fining anyone who doesn’t buy health insurance, the new laws will fine anyone who gets sick and is not covered by the same government health plan that is provided to Congress.”There is More…
