To The Daily Sun,
Our congressman, Republican Frank Guinta, has been doing what he does best: lying about budgets and how he would balance them.
Congressman Guinta has a long history of lying about money, having illegally taken $355,000 in contributions from his parents in 2010. His five-year-long refusal to admit to this led the Union Leader to dub him a "damned liar" in an editorial.
He recently claimed to have been crucial to passing a balanced budget amendment and $60 billion in cuts. To which I say, he's still a damned liar. The budget process managed by the current Republican Congress has utterly fallen apart. Both chambers failed to agree to a budget. No balanced budget amendment was adopted and they only funded the government through Dec. 9. So what's he talking about? Budget cuts?
Spending for FY 2016 and FY 2017 will likely be above the Budget Control Act caps that Congressman Guinta voted for in 2011, and the government continues to under invest in critical needs like infrastructure and education.
Even if I agreed with Congressman Guinta's budget goals, he's still flatly lying about what he's done. New Hampshire deserves better, and he should be voted out of office in November.
