Rep. Max Abramson, L-Seabrook, thought there might be another loophole, because of the large amount of duplex condos in his area. Wouldn’t that law not just allow for a tax break on a small apartment, but a property tax break on half of the property, he asked.
And Margaret Byrnes, executive director of the New Hampshire Municipal Association, testified that it would be difficult for towns to decide who is a non-family member, and more importantly, the municipalities have nothing to gain by this, and only revenue to lose.
“Wouldn’t it discourage towns from wanting to approve ADUs?” Abramson asked later.
Well, the Academic Industrial Complex, that is both the public school system, which is about a trillion dollars a year, and colleges and universities are about 560 billion dollars a year. That's a big Democrat Party contributor, or I should say, constituency. The hospital industry and the medical industry is like 3 trillion dollars. They are also a big Democrat contributor. So, together they're called "Meds and Ed." In my opinion, the reason that the Democratic Party is no longer the party of the working class, is that their biggest constituency: trial lawyers and advanced education are no longer about helping ordinary people. They've really become about the almighty dollar. Our college campuses almost always go Democrat, every single year, no matter what. So no matter what you do, just like a lot of high-crime ghettos, they don't have any political clout, the college students don't have political clout, and so they kind of just keep getting raked over the coals year after year. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, which is the college I first went to, now charges students about 71,000 dollars a year to attend, and it's almost all student loans.
Of course, the real effect of these "plastic bans" is to result in consumers being charged for something that they would normally get for free.
“People hate bans,” said Rep. Max Abramson, a Seabrook Libertarian. “They really hate bans. And when shoppers go elsewhere … the whole state loses jobs and revenue.”
A heartwarming editorial that at least mentions the Libertarian Party. Bad news is better than no news!
"The Libertarian Party won about 3% of the vote in 2016. Possible candidates this time include, among others, New Hampshire state Rep. Max Abramson, software company founder John McAfee, and performance artist Vermin Supreme, who wears a boot on his head. In that field, Mr. Chafee might conceivably capture the nomination, though never the presidency."
