Brown For US Senate - THEN AND NOW: A GLANCE AT NH'S RISING ENERGY PRICES UNDER JEANNE SHAHEEN 

When Senator Sheehan was elected in 2008 she promised to be an independent voice for New Hampshire, but after six years New Hampshire families are paying the price--literally.  Senator Shaheen has proven to be a rubberstamp for President Obama's failed policies and broken promises, and even supports a national energy tax that will kill thousands of jobs and increase the price of gasoline up to 20 cents per gallon.  
 
Senator Sheehan has watched as energy prices burden New Hampshire families—taking more money out of their pockets and making it difficult to make ends meet.
