Jeanne MIA On Vote Protecting NH From Online Sales Tax
Concord – New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on Senator Shaheen missing an important vote yesterday on the federal sales tax bill (Roll Call Here).
“It is unacceptable for Senator Shaheen to miss a vote on legislation that will hurt consumers and burden businesses with onerous new regulations. Shaheen’s failure to stand up for New Hampshire by voting “no” on this motion is an insult to her constituents and a dereliction of her duties as an elected federal official. Granite Staters deserve a full and complete explanation from their senior senator about why she was unable to represent their interests on this important issue."
“Senator Shaheen has failed to actively oppose her party’s attempt to ram this devastating legislation through the Senate. For months, Shaheen has sat on her hands and refused to join Senator Ayotte in her fight to protect small businesses. Yesterday’s missed vote serves as another reminder that Jeanne Shaheen has been an unaccomplished and ineffective senator who has failed to provide any leadership for New Hampshire in Washington."
