We can't fix a democratic Government since we are not a Democratic Government we are a Republic Government with Democratic values. Unless you haven't recited the pledge of allegiance lately it still states "to the republic for which it stands" which is a Government of the people for the people by the people. So as we are still a Republic should we still value the winner of the presidency from the electoral college vote or the popular vote? Which brings me to my next question if it's now the popular vote then was the electoral college vote wrong since John Adams?

Health insurers should Initiate a major medical policy that everyone must join. Government should provide free of charge annual checkups and preventitive care. This might work.

Good morning David, Currently, the Salvation Army has the resources to open new addiction-recovery centers in NH at no cost to the State, but owing to current underutilization of their existing recovery centers in Maine and Massachusetts, they have opted to conserve their resources and remain outside the state. Can something be done to change this situation? What if a bill were proposed in the NH legislature that, if passed, would require the State's detox centers and courts to send their patients and inmates to free out-of-state recovery centers, so long as beds are available? The justification for the law would be that it would save the NH taxpayers money, and would create the demand for additional privately-funded centers to open in cities like Manchester, Nashua and Laconia. If you agree that passing a law could bring free, privately-funded recovery services to NH residents, I can work with my local state representative to promote the needed legislation. I have provided contact information below for the Salvation Army's Portland adult recovery center.

I believe it would be beneficial to observe daylight savings time permanently or switch to Atlantic Standard Time like other neighbor states are proposing to do. It should be a popular vote and not left to the hands of the NH Senate.

It was uncomfortable for me to breastfeed after delivery because the milk was not passing out smoothly, but my nurse helped me to feed the baby properly, and I became habitual of feeding the baby gradually.

I am a Conservative Republican and will be voting for Trump - again. I will be actively working for anyone who is Republican and running against you. Care to tell us more about your Ukraine dealings, Ms. Shaheen?
- Joan Proulx   Oct 21, 2019
Impeach him for what? Everything the DEMOCRATS have done that he is uncovering via Barr & Gulliani? Even Shaheen has been connected to the Ukraine but Trump declassified and released his documents. Is Shaheen willing to do the same on her Ukraine dealings?

Good morning, a few of my concerns are tax credit for child care and the purchase of a home. That was taken away from Middle Class people when they file their taxes they do not receive the tax credit given in the past when they claim their children and homes on their taxes. I understand there will be some increase in our taxes, we can't get something for nothing, my Mother use to say if you don't pay at the beginning you will surely pay at the end, but the Middle class need a break, we have been taxed out, every doctors appointment has a co-pay attached and God forbid if you need to go to a specialist then the co-pay increases, something needs to be done. The Bankruptcy's laws need to be changed, when someone who is really struggling with keeping their homes, cars, etc., we can't go and receive a Chapter 7 like the Rich people can, the big companies can file Chapter 11 and get out of their problems, but again the low income, middle class people have a hard time getting a break. This may sound too Religious but during the year of Jubilee people were freed from bondage and debts were forgiven, I am not saying to open up the jails and let people go because there are a lot of people that should be in jail and remain there, but again we know that Free Health Care for All will never happen, student loans will probably never be forgiven, but I think that something can be done to help Everyone, not just student of today's times but parents that received loans so their child could go to college should receive some type of relief, yes I know they have student loan repayment programs, but if you have a $28,000 debt and the pool on gives you a $1000 and that is taxed and then you are only given $500 of that $1000, the interest on that loan eats up that $500 and it does nothing for your student loan debt. I think banks should be required to help their customers, if they have been customers for years, why can't they be given a personal loan at a certain amount, and it can increase upon your payment history with your bank. Nobody wants to help people that have less than perfect credit, we need help just like everyone else, not debt relief programs, because they get you further in debt, because they charge you a fee for their services, and you still have to pay your bills every month. Sorry I'm just trying to find help in a world that don't seem to want to help people that's trying to live! Thank you.
