Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today called on Senator Jeanne Shaheen to apologize for repeatedly misleading New Hampshire voters on ObamaCare:
"Senator Jeanne Shaheen made blatantly false statements and personally misled her constituents into believing that they could keep their insurance policies under ObamaCare if they liked them. She needs to immediately admit that she was wrong and apologize for imposing this terrible law on New Hampshire families," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Instead of standing up for New Hampshire, Senator Shaheen also voted in lock step with her liberal party leadership against common sense legislation that would have prevented the cancellation of millions of insurance policies. The Senator has proven that she lacks the courage and independent leadership that is required to stand up to her own party and protect New Hampshire from the devastating consequences of ObamaCare."
In an October 15, 2009 speech on the floor of the Senate, Shaheen dishonestly claimed "everyone will have the freedom to keep their health care plan if they like it," under ObamaCare (Video Here.)
In an August 2009 teletown hall, Shaheen misled a voter from Salem who asked her if he could keep his health insurance under ObamaCare.
"If you have health coverage that you like you can keep it," said Shaheen (Transcript Here.)
