"Real liberty is neither found in despotism or the extremes of democracy, but in moderate governments.

“A large faction of this group only focuses on the fact that government really should be much smaller than it is, regardless of the consequences that that has on their fellow man,” NH House Speaker Shawn Jasper

And that about sums it up in this almost unprecedented failure of the NH House to approve a budget.
Jasper went on to say that these same members are “totally disconnected from their constituents.” He was of course referring to the Freedom Caucus.

Speaker Jasper was adamant in his refusal to seek support from the Democrats and the Freedom Caucus was successful in keeping their own party from passing a budget and making any compromise. No one wanted to let anyone play in their sandbox.
The end result was essentially a waste of time and energy. Nothing was accomplished. No attempt at compromise. Ideology wins. NH citizens lose.
