SEIU - May 8: Mother's Day Message to Congress

Granite State Mothers to Deliver Mother’s Day

Message to Congress: We Need Health Care for All


CONCORD, NH – On Friday, May 8, mothers from around the state will make special Mother’s Day deliveries to Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Representative Carol Shea-Porter, and Senator Gregg with a message: this mother’s day, we need quality, affordable health care for all.


Moms will deliver flowers and cards to Senator Shaheen and Representative Shea-Porter thanking them for their leadership this year in reauthorizing and expanding the State Children’s Health Insurance Program. New Hampshire mothers are counting on their continued leadership to make sure that all parents can stay healthy too.


Senator Gregg will get a different kind of mother’s day delivery – prescription pill bottles – to remind him that too many mothers across the state are struggling with the high costs of health care. Senator Gregg voted against the State Children’s Health Insurance Program and against the budget which included a down-payment on health care reform.
