Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement in response to President Obama's State of the Union Address:
"Tonight, President Obama doubled-down on the failed policies that have given us more debt, more job-killing regulations and forced people to lose their health insurance. Instead of offering a new plan to address the challenges facing our country, the president focused on his plan to disregard the Constitution by ignoring Congress and expanding his power. His agenda flies in the face of the vision laid out by our Founding Fathers who established a system of checks and balances to ensure a limited federal government.
"Jeanne Shaheen, Annie Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter have all blindly supported President Obama's destructive policies and enthusiastically championed his disastrous health care law. They are political puppets and rubber stamps in Congress for a president who lacks the vision and priorities needed to create economic opportunity for New Hampshire families.
"Tonight's speech reminded voters that President Obama is a failure. In order to get our country back on track we need to replace his loyal foot soldiers like Senator Shaheen. Representative Kuster and Shea Porter with fiscally responsible Republicans who will stand up to the liberal Obama agenda and promote pro growth policies."
