Concord - The Hill reports that President Obama "got an earful" today from nervous Senate Democrats, including Senator Jeanne Shaheen, over the disastrous rollout of ObamaCare. During a secret, two-hour meeting in Washington, panicked Senate Democrats vented about the failure of the president's signature legislative achievement.

 

"Senator Jeanne Shaheen cast the deciding vote for ObamaCare and dishonestly promised Granite Staters that they could keep their insurance policies if they liked them. Despite Shaheen's phony pledge, thousands of New Hampshire families are now receiving insurance cancellation notices because of the disastrous consequences of her vote," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Instead of complaining about ObamaCare in closed door meetings, Shaheen needs to publicly admit that she misled New Hampshire and immediately apologize for her shameful behavior."

 

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.)
