We must not spend what we do not have. It is imperative that we continue to budget in a way that requires government to live within its means, just like every household in New Hampshire. We worked long and hard and with great cooperation from all sides to eliminate the projected $800 million budget deficit during this past budget cycle. This was accomplished without raising taxes or fees! We must insist that future budgets are based on real numbers and do not include borrowing money to pay for current expenses or unrealistic revenue estimates.
