Today the senate passed SB 7. A template bill from a conservative Florida think tank that Senator Avard copied word for word (really...look yourself) when asked if he really wrote the bill Senator Avard said "Uuuh, I think I had some help."
This bill will likely kick 17,000 children and families off of food stamps. This bill doesn't save New Hampshire money. It stops New Hampshire from collecting federal funds.
When Senator Avard was asked about the bill he said it was about "making sure that you don't got a million dollars in a trust fund and you're collecting food stamps." Senator, we have news for you...no one has a million dollars in a trust fund and is collecting food stamps.
We need a Democratic majority in 2018 and it starts with fundraising right now. Please consider donating $25, $50, $100 or whatever you can afford to help us fight back!
