NH GOP - WITH SHAHEEN HOLDING ANOTHER FUNDRAISER WITH HEALTH CARE LOBBYISTS, NHGOP CHALLENGES HER TO HOST OBAMACARE TOWN HALL MEETING
Concord - On the heels of last week's botched attempt to hide her meeting with some of Boston's top lobbyists at O'Neil Associates, today Senator Jeanne Shaheen is holding another closed door fundraiser in Massachusetts. However Shaheen still refuses to hold a town hall meeting to discuss ObamaCare with her constituents in New Hampshire.
The breakfast fundraiser with liberal Senator Elizabeth Warren, first reported by the Boston Globe, was held at Foley & Lardner LLP this morning, a Boston law firm that lobbies for health care industry clients on their issues.
"Voters in New Hampshire could be forgiven for wondering if Senator Shaheen cares more about the interests of Boston lobbyists than her constituents," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "For the second time in two weeks, Senator Shaheen is holding a fundraiser behind closed doors with top industry lobbyists, but she still refuses to appear in New Hampshire to discuss ObamaCare's catastrophic consequences on the people she was elected to represent. Today, the New Hampshire Republican Party is challenging Senator Shaheen to appear publicly in the Granite State for an open and honest dialogue about the health care bill that she cast the deciding vote for."
Last week, Shaheen's fundraiser at O'Neil Associates came under heavy criticism in the media when the firm tweeted out, then deleted pictures of Shaheen at the swanky downtown Boston lobbying firm.
