New Hampshire state Rep. Michael Cahill thinks if his Republican colleagues are unwilling to raise taxes, the state should consider offing the liabilities in society.
“Since we are refusing to raise revenues to fund needed programs, to fund services to disabled, for example, have you looked at euthanasia?” asked Cahill, a democRAT, during a legislative debate on the budget Wednesday.
House Speaker Shawn Jasper quickly called Cahill out of order and called his comments “inappropriate.”
Senate President Chuck Morse says any new taxes are completely off the table — a stance progressives, of course, don’t like.
“It’s not often that all of my colleagues in the Senate can agree upon one thing, but today I think we can all agree that we must set aside this reckless Republican budget that just came over from the House,” Democrat Andrew Hosmer tells New Hampshire Public Radio.
Meanwhile, Cahill blamed his emotions for his outburst suggesting the state kill the disabled.

Marchers bring light to issues that challenge our community. They stop at 14 different stations in remembrance of the Stations of the Cross. Each cross carried raising awareness about issues like debt, homelessness, racism, murder and others.
About 200 people marched last year. The rain did appear to keep the crowd small this year.
To the surprise of absolutely no one familiar with the ways of Corruptifornia, the one-party state completely in the hands of the Democrats, a consortium whose lead firm is controlled by Richard Blum, husband of Sen. Diane Feinstein, was awarded a nearly billion-dollar contract for the construction of the first phase of the so-called high-speed rail line to link San Francisco and Los Angeles. Those paying attention to the project call it the “half-fast” rail line because it will share trackage with conventional commuter rail trains in the sprawling Los Angeles and San Francisco areas, lowering its average speed to levels achieved by American railways a century ago.
No corruption to see here, right? Move along, move along.
