American people have rejected Obamacare since it was passed

To The Daily Sun,

The American people have firmly rejected Obamacare since the black day it was signed into law. The law is a socialistic ploy, one filled with lies, distortions, deceit, death panels, and theft of freedom. Some 14,000 new IRS agents were hired as the enforcement arm of this tyranny. Yes, the same IRS that was encouraged by Jeanne Shaheen to target American citizens.

MIT professor and architect of Obamacare Jonathan Gruber recently let the "cat out of the bag" in regards to Obamacare during a panel discussion. The following is a quote from Mr. Gruber.

"The bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. Okay, so it's written to do that. In terms of risk related subsidies, if you have a law that said healthy people are going to pay in -- you made explicit healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed ... Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass. Look, I wish Mark was right that we could make it all transparent, but I'd rather have this law than not."

There you have it, the Obamacare smoking gun. You have an administration who openly refers to the "stupidity" of the American voter. You have an administration who has lied from day one to pass their signature piece of legislation. You have an administration who openly admits that a "lack of transparency is a huge political advantage."

Obamacare must be repealed in its entirety. The law is unworkable and destructive of our republic. Health-care reform must be based in patient centered solutions and reforms, something the (un)affordable care act is not.

To radical leftists like Barack Obama, the theory that "the ends justify the means" holds a place near and dear to their heart. Obamacare is a disaster. Millions more Americans will lose their employer-based coverage over the course of the next several years. The "federal exchange" is a violation of the law, as the law states clearly exchanges are left to the "states." God willing the Supreme Court will rule correctly, abolish the federal exchange, thereby gutting the entire law. Pray for our nation.

I appreciate the confidence Sanbornton & Tilton have shown in me

To The Daily Sun,

I am writing to all the voters of the towns of Sanbornton and Tilton to express my sincere appreciation for your support at the polls on Tuesday Nov. 4, allowing me to serve as your new State Representative for the next two years in Concord.

I sincerely appreciate the confidence so many neighbors have entrusted in me with this important responsibility to serve you. In particular, I wish to acknowledge my wife, Karen, for her unconditional support and patience during this new life journey.

Thank you also to both Ian Raymond and Jane Alden my general election opponents for running professional and respectful campaigns. I will join Representative Fields in the coming weeks to serve cooperatively both for Tilton and Sanbornton.

My vision to you is to listen, study, and make decisions (some very difficult) in the best interests of our two neighboring family communities.

Isn't it time for you to join the Belknap Range Trail Tenders?

To The Daily Sun,

This week, Volunteer N.H., a non-profit organization, sponsored an awards ceremony, celebrating volunteers in New Hampshire. There were at least 117 recipients, and those are only the ones being recognized. For every recipient, there are dozens of others who are working quietly, changing and molding the face of New Hampshire, helping those who need help, not expecting accolades.

At Monday's awards ceremony, the local group Belknap Range Trail Tenders was recognized. It is made up of local residents, a group of over 99 people. Right here in our area, working on the hiking trails in the Belknap Range. These people for the most part are just like you and me, ordinary citizens who volunteer their time, lovingly caring for the mountain, so you and I can enjoy our hikes.

Isn't it time you join this silent army and volunteer your time? Look around you, there's always something good you can do. America is unique in its volunteerism. Be a part of it.

Peggy Graham

Secretary, BRATTS

Thanks to We Care for slecting LRCS to benefit from music events

To The Daily Sun,

On behalf of Lakes Region Community Services (LRCS), I would like to thank the members of Temple B'nai Israel and their We Care program for selecting LRCS to be the recipient of the net proceeds of their musical events this year.

The We Care program committee brought two diverse and talented musical groups to the Lakes Region, with Gathering Time last June and most recently the Freese Brothers Big Band in October. Their efforts provided the Lakes Region with wonderful entertainment and benefitted LRCS and those we serve. As a nonprofit, we depend on relationships with others in the community to carry out our mission, "dedicated to serving the community by promoting independence, dignity and opportunity."

The friendships and relationships forged by working together this year, will go beyond these two events, and for that I am appreciative. To quote Margaret Mead, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world, indeed it is the only thing that ever has."

On behalf of everyone at LRCS, I thank the members of Temple B'nai Israel for their generosity, friendship, and hospitality.

Christine L. Santaniello, Executive Director
