NHDP - Rand Paul Doesn’t Want New Hampshire To “Live Free”… Thank Goodness He’s Gone

MANCHESTER – New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement on Rand Paul’s visit to New Hampshire yesterday:

"When Washington Republicans swing through New Hampshire, they really like to hone in on our beloved state motto: Live Free or Die. Rand Paul did that yesterday and tried to fool Granite Staters into thinking he’s 'different' from other Republicans because he’ll 'fight for your right to be left alone' and live free. That’s about as ridiculous and hypocritical as it gets. If Rand Paul really believed in our right to 'live free,' he wouldn’t oppose a woman’s right to preventive health care coverage or to make her own health care decisions. He wouldn’t oppose an LGBT couple’s right to get married or, frankly, have rights at all. And he sure wouldn’t make it harder for people to carry out their right to vote. We hear from a lot of typical Republicans in New Hampshire and Rand Paul is one of them. Just like the rest of them, he’s not going to fight for our right to 'live free or die' – it’s time for him to drop the act."
