Letter: We’re Fortunate to Have Ayotte

To the Editor:

How very fortunate we are here in New Hampshire to have Sen. Kelly Ayotte representing us in Congress. Ayotte is continuing her common sense approach in Washington. She recently proposed an amendment in this year’s budget that extends the current pay freeze for members of Congress through the next decade.

Why? Because the Democrats’ proposed budget is projected to run a deficit over the next 10 years, and she feels that Congress shouldn’t get a pay raise while Washington is running a deficit. It’s truly refreshing to see that Ayotte is willing to make tough decisions in Congress, just as many families in New Hampshire have had to make, thanks to this president’s failed economic policies. In the spirit of bipartisanship, it would be nice to see the other members of the New Hampshire delegation follow suit.
