Citizens Report: SOTU, Shaheen tele-town hall, and more...

Senator Jeanne Shaheen hides behind a tele-town hall meeting
While she refuses to hold public town hall meetings, after months of pressure from Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, Senator Shaheen is still hiding, but has decided to host a tele-town hall meeting next week.

While we certainly still believe that this is a poor excuse for communicating with constituents, we encourage all Granite Staters to participate and ask her some of the important questions - such as why she still supports a failing Obamacare, why she ignores our skyrocketing debt and deficit, and how come shehasn't apologized for telling 22,000 Granite Staters who lost their insurance under Obamacare the "Lie of the Year."

In order to participate in the tele-town hall, you must pre-register.  Please click HERE to visit Senator Shaheen's website and sign-up.  After participating in her tele-town hall, email and let us know your thoughts on the meeting.
Responding to President Obama's State of the Union Address
On Tuesday, President Obama held his fifth State of the Union Address. In response to his speech, Derek Dufresne, spokesman for Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire made the following statement:

"President Obama delivered a message to the American people this evening with his central focus being that if Congress does not support his tax-and-spend liberal agenda, he will circumvent our forefathers' vision of checks and balances and separation of powers to accomplish his goals unilaterally. 

"Tonight we hoped for a message of leadership that would lower our debt and deficit and spur economic growth for all Granite Staters. However, we were given more of the same failed policies that have resulted in higher unemployment and larger government. All Americans deserved better."

Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire's statement was used in the Nashua Telegraph's editorial titled, "Play our State of the Union game."

Mr. President, you still fail to recognize that the best way for gov. to 'create more jobs' is for gov. to get out of the way! #SOTU


Senator Jeanne Shaheen's "Lie of the Year"


THIS image we created this week was a big hit on Facebook and Twitter. Be sure to "share" and "retweet" it to continue to remind Granite Staters that Senator Shaheen told us the "Lie of the Year," that we would keep our health insurance under Obamacare. 



Laugh of the week    
Here's some humor for your Friday, especially if you felt this way during Tuesday's State of the Union. Have a great weekend, Granite Staters!
