Hodes, Shea-Porter score low on economic growth

Hodes and Shea-Porter were criticized last week by two of their opponents for their poor rankings on an economic growth scorecard.

Bosse, a former legislative assistant to Sununu, ripped Hodes for receiving a 6 percent rating from the Club for Growth's 2007 Congressional Scorecard. The Club for Growth monitors the actions and voting behavior of members of Congress on economic growth issues.

"New Hampshire can't afford another two years of Paul Hodes' budget-busting votes," Bosse said.

Meanwhile, Stephen, the state's former Department of Health and Human Services commissioner, slammed Shea-Porter for her low score. She received a rating of just 1 percent.

"The last thing we need in the middle of an economic slowdown is higher taxes, more regulation and more wasteful government spending ... but that is just what the congresswoman has voted for," Stephen said.
