NRSC - Jeanne Shaheen's Pledge Problem 

The Last Pledge Shaheen Famously Made to Granite State Voters Was, "If You Like Your Health Plan... You Can Keep It."

Jeanne Shaheen can't seem to stop tripping over herself.  

First Shaheen's office got caught misleading reporters after claiming to have "a full week of events scheduled in New Hampshire and that they will send advisories on Monday." On Monday Shaheen's office failed to produce a list of Senator Shaheen's events for the week when asked for one.

Next, the embattled Senator hypocritically called for outside groups to stay out of New Hampshire (despite the fact that liberal outside groups have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on her behalf) before jet setting to California to hobnob with liberal special interest donors.

Shaheen sure seems to be spending a lot of time outside of New Hampshire in order to fill her campaign coffers with special interest money. Once again Jeanne Shaheen is putting the interests of her liberal donors before the interests of her state.

The last pledge that Senator Shaheen famously made to her constituents was that those who liked their health insurance plans could keep them with ObamaCare.  Despite Shaheen's pledge, 22,000 Granite Staters received health insurance cancellation notices because of Shaheen's deciding vote for ObamaCare.

"The last pledge that Jeanne Shaheen made was that if you liked your health plan, you could keep it and we all know how that turned out," said NRSC Press Secretary Brook Hougesen. "The fact that Shaheen is willing to sign the 'People's Pledge' with one hand and take liberal special interest money from California with the other is a perfect illustration of just how hypocritical she is being with New Hampshire voters. Granite Staters are excited to have the opportunity to return the office to someone who can be trusted to say what they mean and mean what they say."
