NHDP - Walt Havenstein and His Far-Right Allies Don't Want Voters to Know About His Plan to Repeal Medicaid Expansion

Havenstein Needs to Answer If He Had Anything To Do With His Far-Right Allies Forcing YouTube to Remove Video Featuring Havenstein's Comments at Closed-Door Meeting that He Would Repeal Medicaid Expansion
 
Manchester, NH – Failed CEO Walt Havenstein and his far-right allies don't want voters to know about his plan to repeal Medicaid expansion from 50,000 Granite Staters. Havenstein needs to answer whether he had anything to do with Tea Party blog GraniteGrok forcing YouTube to take down a video featuring Havenstein's comments at a closed-door meeting where he said that he would “veto Medicaid expansion when it comes back up in two and a half years.” 
 
The web video, released by the NHDP last week, outlined how Walt Havenstein would be a rubber stamp for the anti-middle class Koch Brothers agenda and take New Hampshire back to the Bill O’Brien era of devastating cuts to education, health care and public safety.  

"It's hardly a secret that Walt Havenstein would try to take away health coverage from 50,000 Granite Staters, after all, he signed his name to the Koch Brothers pledge committing that he'd work for full repeal of Medicaid expansion," said New Hampshire Democratic Party Deputy Communications Director Bryan Lesswing. "While Walt Havenstein and his far-right allies clearly don't want voters to know about his plan to take away health coverage from tens of thousands of Granite Staters, forcing YouTube to remove footage of a closed-door meeting where Havenstein vows to repeal Medicaid expansion won't allow him to hide from his Bill O'Brien/Koch Brothers agenda."
 
"As hard as Havenstein will try to run away from his past, voters will see through his desperate attempts to hide from his anti-middle class Koch Brothers agenda and his disastrous record as CEO of SAIC, where he made nearly $20 million while while his company’s stock plummeted, they shed thousands of jobs, and the company overcharged taxpayers on government projects," added Lesswing.
 
Havenstein signed the Koch Brothers-backed Americans for Prosperity pledge calling to repeal health coverage from 50,000 Granite Staters and bring New Hampshire back to the Bill O'Brien era of budget cuts that slashed higher funding in half, and Havenstein continues to oppose an increase in the minimum wage for hard working Granite Staters, despite making nearly $20 million himself while his company lost millions of dollars and shed thousands of jobs under his failed leadership as CEO.
