NH Journal: Republicans have not embraced some of the big government policies advocated by what is sometimes called the “New Right”
WASHINGTON – During an interview on the New Hampshire-based WFEA Morning Update, Chair Scott Brown highlighted the results of a joint poll from the Competitiveness Coalition and New Hampshire’s Josiah Bartlett Center for Public Policy.
Speaking about Granite State voters, Brown pointed out that, “their number one issue is reducing federal deficits by cutting wasteful spending. Number two is repealing the so-called ‘Inflation Reduction Act,’ and number three is keeping taxes on small businesses, obviously, low for families.”
In highlighting voters’ disdain for Bidenomics’ devastating effect on consumers, Brown noted that, “there’s absolutely no appetite to stop the one or two-day service from Amazon. As you know, Lina Khan, the head of the FTC, is going after all of the big tech companies.”
In their coverage of the survey, NH Journal noted, “New Hampshire Republicans have not embraced some of the big government policies advocated by what is sometimes called the ‘New Right.’ For example, 72 percent said there is already too much regulation of American businesses, and a similar number oppose Biden administration regulations that would break up large technology companies such as Amazon, Apple, and Google.”
The poll shows that New Hampshire primary voters overwhelmingly oppose more government regulation, and that many voters are concerned about potential rises in cost for or degradation of services they have come to rely on, such as Amazon Prime or Google Search, as a result of potential increased regulations on large technology companies.
