Instead The White House Should Send An Explanation To N.H. Seniors Facing Medicare Cuts
Concord, NH -- New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Wayne MacDonald released the following statement in advance of the latest campaign stump pushed by the White House. Today, Cory Booker, the Mayor of Newark, New Jersey, will be in the state to try and sell President Obama's second stimulus plan.
“It doesn't matter who the White House sends to New Hampshire to stump for votes and help muscle through another round of stimulus spending. While the latest official to offer spin for President Obama is Cory Booker, the message is the same -- more spending and bigger government. Just like me, Granite Staters are frustrated and angered by the amount of spending we've seen from this Administration, especially in light of our nation's national debt topping $15,000,000,000,000 recently.
“Instead of continuing this push for a second stimulus bill, President Obama and his allies should start to explain why they cut Medicare benefits for 7,600 seniors in New Hampshire. The trouble is that Obama's White House is solely focused on its re-election campaign and doesn't care to talk about how the President's agenda has made matters worse.”

NH UNION LEADER (12/1/11): “Remember when President Obama said that if his health care ‘reform’ law passed, you’d still get to keep your doctor? Medicare Advantage participants in the Granite State are finding out what a lie that was… New Hampshire has a high percentage of Medicare Advantage enrollees. Last month, 7,600 of them received notices that their coverage was being cancelled… As a result, thousands of Granite State seniors are being forced to switch doctors because they have to switch coverage. This is just a taste of what is to come if Obamacare takes effect in full force.”
