Citizens Report: Weekly Newsletter

One of Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire's General Consultants, Mike Biundo, engaged in a substantive debate with the New Hampshire Democratic Party spokesman Harrell Kirstein over our TV advertisement "What to Cut", the unpopularity of Obamacare in New Hampshire, Senator Shaheen's vote for it, and the effect this job-killing law will have on middle-class families.

In case you missed it, you can watch the full segment here.

Fiscal Responsibility
A fiscally responsible budget

This week, New Hampshire legislators agreed not to rely on the House's failed tax and spend policies, but followed the Senate's fiscally responsible approach to what our state can afford. This budget does not include the cigarette tax increase or the 67% increase in gas tax (as had been included in the House's budget.)

Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire is thankful that the budget does not include these increased taxes and fees that would have burdened Granite State families.  We also applaud the Legislature for the responsible decision to not expand Medicaid without first conducting a study.
Americans don't like Obamacare

Americans still don't like Obamacare 

The most recent Kaiser Health Tracking Poll shows that only 35% of Americans polled have a favorable view of Obamacare.  In response to these low favorable numbers, Organizing for Action (OFA) released its first health care ad, but as CNN reported, they weren't the first to be up on the airwaves on this issue.


"OFA isn't the first to launch a health care ad this month. The battle hit the New Hampshire airwaves two weeks ago when a conservative group launched a commercial criticizing Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, who's up for re-election next year, for supporting the law. The group, Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, spent $110,000 on the 30-second ad."[1]
