“There are currently a number of courageous New Hampshire House Republicans taking a principled conservative stand against this assault upon the middle class.”
An op-ed in Sunday’s Concord Monitor took issue with the suggestion that all New Hampshire Republicans support toxic “Right-to-Work” legislation:
Grant Bosse’s claim that there’s “no defense” for Republican conservatives to oppose HB 1562, the “right to work” legislation, is ludicrous. Bill and Nackey Loeb, former publishers of the Union Leader who dominated conservative politics in New Hampshire for decades, vigorously opposed anti-employee “right to work” legislation.
Nackey Loeb wrote that “right to work” is the “most misnamed” bill that’s more accurately called the “right to bust unions, right to freeload and right to work for less” legislation. There are currently a number of courageous New Hampshire House Republicans taking a principled conservative stand against this assault upon the middle class.
The Republican Party would be foolish to take Bosse’s advice of attempting to purge legislators who refuse to support what many including the Catholic Church consider immoral legislation, essentially turning workers into chattel.
The opinion piece concludes by suggesting that “Right-to-Work” in its latest form, HB 1562, “deserves a quick legislative death.”
