The Obamacare disaster continues in New Hampshire...
This week, we saw the national disaster known as Obamacare continue to unfold here in New Hampshire.
We all know that when trying to sell Obamacare to the American people, President Obama was famously quoted on several occasions saying something similar to the following quote, "Let me be clear, if you like your doctor or healthcare provider, you can keep them. If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep that too."- President Obama, 2009
On Thursday evening, while it might be too little too late for the millions of Americans who have already received their cancelation letters, President Obama finally apologized to them for his false promise that no one would be forced off of a plan they wanted to keep as a result of Obamacare.
Earlier this week, Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire uncovered video from 2010 with Rep. Carol Shea-Porter saying something similar to President Obama: "It's our job to say, if you have insurance, and your employer covers you, it's not going to change." - Rep. Shea-Porter
Video of Rep. Shea-Porter's comments can be found here in our web video we released this week.
In August 2009, according to the Union Leader, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen made similar comments, too. She said during a telephone town hall: "But under every scenario that I've seen, if you have health coverage that you like, you get to keep it." The Union Leader also reported on other instances where she made similar statements.
From a New Hampshire perspective, we now know specific numbers regarding how many New Hampshire residents are already being canceled from their current insurance plans, despite untrue statements from Pres. Obama, Sen. Shaheen and Rep. Shea-Porter. At least 22,000 Granite Staters who have Anthem Blue CrossBlue Shield NH plans will be kicked off their healthcare policies.
As Obamacare news continues to unfold, we will be sure to keep you informed of how it is effecting you and other New Hampshire families.

Take action on Obamacare!
As you are aware, President Obama has finally apologized to millions of Americans for his untrue and misleading statements assuring them they would be able to keep their current health insurance plans under Obamacare.
Considering they made similar false promises, Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire is urging Granite Staters to call on Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and Rep. Carol Shea-Porter to do the same.
While millions are losing their insurance nation-wide due to Obamacare, at least 22,000 New Hampshire residents will be receiving cancellation notices despite untrue claims made by the President that were echoed by Sen. Shaheen and Rep. Shea-Porter. They did so in order to force Obamacare into law and manipulate Americans in order to save their own political careers. Granite Staters deserve an apology and an explanation immediately.
