The doughty Republicans of the NH Senate found a way to avoid dealing with anything that might make them a little uncomfortable - by passing a rule change that allows them to avoid discomfort. A new rule requires a 2/3 vote to introduce or hear certain resolutions.
They are currently using that rule to avoid hearing:
I'm surprised by HCR 1. Given how willing the Republican party is to create veterans, it's rather shocking that they aren't willing to even hear a NON BINDING resolution that addresses taking care of our NH veterans.
HCR 2 is no surprise. Citizen's United is a golden goose for the GOP.
HJR 1 is also not a big surprise. We're all more than a little familiar with the kind of contempt that the Republican Party has for women. Given the recent international scandal of Rep. Peter Hansen and the "vagina's" you'd think that the dunderheads might want to hear this resolution, if only to make women feel a little bit better about them.
You can use the Senate Roster to find contact information for your senator, and let them know how you feel about this sorry little bit of cowardice.
