From the Nashua Telegraph

Kevin Landrigan of the Nashua Telegraph highlights Grant's "50 Days, 50 Ways to Cut Federal Spending".

CONCORD – Republican congressional candidate Grant Bosse, of Hillsborough, said if elected, he would vote against aid for New Hampshire to curb federal spending if need be.

"If voters want somebody to bring home the bacon, I am not their candidate,'' said Bosse, a former state and federal legislative aide.

Bosse targeted eliminating the federal subsidy for ethanol, a corn-based fuel, as the first of 50 spending cuts he would propose over the final seven weeks leading to the Sept. 9 primary.

"Our current ethanol policy drives up gas prices, drives up food prices, hurts the environment and taxpayers get to pay $6.3 billion a year for the privilege,'' Bosse said.
