Citizens Report: Weekly Newsletter

Our TV spot featured on WMUR-TV News 9

The momentum continued this week with Citizens for a Strong NewHampshire's first television ad, "What to Cut," focusing on Senator Jeanne Shaheen's deciding vote to pass Obamacare and the impact it will have on middle-class families due to regulations that could cut employee work weeks from 40 to 29 hours.

Since last week's e-newsletter, WMUR-TV News 9's Josh McKelveen highlighted the TV advertisement on a segment during the 6pm news. On it, Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire's spokesman, Derek Dufresne, explained how our group will continue to focus on the issues. However, while our organization will allow Granite Staters to make their own decisions on their elected officials, we will be out there educating them on an important vote such as Senator Shaheen's deciding vote for Obamacare.

In an editorial this week, the Strafford County-based newspaper Fosters Daily Democrat, responded to liberals who have been trying to make light of Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire's work to highlight Senator Jeanne Shaheen's vote that ties her to the failings of Obamacare. If liberals continue to do so, the newspaper says they "do so at their own risk."


The editorial went on to discuss how "as the ad implies, we are seeing the first signs of trouble" from the effects of Obamacare as "employers are cutting hours in order to bolster their defenses."

It shouldn't be too surprising, but days after our first TV ad hit the airwaves, liberals have been on the attack against our organization. From Democratic National Committeewoman Kathy Sullivan to failed candidate for State Senate Lee Nyquist and organized labor groups, those who disagree with us have been on the offensive. You know why they have been attacking us? Because what we are doing is working.
