ObamaCare Hurts New Hampshire Women,
Shaheen Proudly Stands By Unpopular Law

Shaheen's ObamaCare to increase premiums by 169% for New Hampshire women

ObamaCare is turning into a real life nightmare for women, but Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) doesn't seem very concerned

A new analysis from the American Action Forum (AAF) finds that young women face triple digit increases in the cost of their health care premiums. The study details that in New Hampshire premiums for healthy women will skyrocket, increasing by 169 percent or about $127 per month.

Across New Hampshire, young women, mothers, sisters, aunts, and seniors will be impacted by the onerous and expensive impact of ObamaCare; women that are losing their health insurance, fearing the upcoming doctor shortage or paying for exponentially more expensive premiums.

Despite those realities, Jeanne Shaheen refuses to acknowledge that ObamaCare is causing health care costs to rise and seems unconcerned that women across the state will struggle to afford the new law. Make no mistake; it is the personal impact that ObamaCare will have on women, seniors, and families that is the real trainwreck for Jeanne Shaheen who has repeatedly defended the unpopular law instead of women in New Hampshire.

"The facts show that ObamaCare will hurt women throughout New Hampshire, yet Jeanne Shaheen still proudly boasts about the unpopular law," said NRSC Press Secretary Brook Hougesen. "Jeanne Shaheen broke her promises to New Hampshire women on ObamaCare, which limits health care choices, raises costs and lowers the quality of care. Instead of continuing to ignore the many problems of ObamaCare, Jeanne Shaheen should admit it has been a failure and delay it."
