Trump is right; we need lower income tax rates & a simplified tax code

To The Daily Sun,

As a New Hampshire state representative, I've seen the impact the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton have had on our state's middle class and business community. The path to growth is not through the tax-and-spend policies Hillary Clinton is advocating.

Mr. Trump is right. We need lower taxes and a simplified tax code. I applaud his new tax bracket proposal of 12, 25 and 33 percent. There's no reason why the middle class should be forced to pay for a high-priced accountant in order to reduce their tax burden.

With the Granite State having the third highest energy costs in the continental United States, small businesses need all the capital they can get. Mr. Trump's proposal to reduce the corporate tax rate to 15 percent, will give small business owners the capital they need to reinvest in and expand their business. If there was ever a time to not raise taxes on the middle class and small businesses, that time is now.

I hope you will join me in voting for Donald Trump on Nov. 8.

Hosmer is a good man; he is for the people & we need to support him

To The Daily Sun,

I am proud to support Andy Hosmer for re-election as our state senator. He has worked very hard for us in Concord, and has accomplished a lot in a bipartisan manner. He has helped lead the fight in the opioid crisis in New Hampshire. He served on the Opioid Task Force, and co-sponsored legislation that was focused on addiction prevention, treatment and recovery. He also co-sponsored very important legislation for the implementation of drug courts in New Hampshire. His efforts also helped support funding for law enforcement to help keep our communities drug free.

As a business owner, he knows the importance of jobs and economic growth. He has led bipartisan efforts to make our state business friendly, and supported legislation that reduced business taxes in New Hampshire for the first time in more than 20 years.

As a dad, Andy knows the importance of access to quality child care for working families. He sponsored SB-511 to offer property-tax relief based on a family's child care expenses. He also voted to support Medicaid expansion, which helped 50,000 hardworking New Hampshire citizens to access affordable health insurance. Andy works hard for us in Concord. He is for the people, he is a good man, and we need to support him for re-election.
