Jan. 27, 2016

Californians have reason to worry they can't be anonymous donors. Plus: More on the coach sacked for praying, what made Florida shine, and why kids can't stomach new nutrition standards.

Cornerstone - Shaheen & Hassan "celebrate" pro-abortion PAC 

Cornerstone Action

Governor Hassan, Senator Shaheen "Celebrate" a Major Donor

Maggie Hassan, the New Hampshire governor who has asked for a COO to help her do her job, has managed to find the time to be in Washington this week to celebrate the 30th anniversary of pro-abortion PAC Emily's List.

Emily's List has contributed generously to Governor Maggie Hassan and Senator Jeanne Shaheen through the years - more than a million dollars to Shaheen since 2001, as reported in a New Hampshire Union Leader article published today. 
Hassan and Shaheen would lose future Emily's List donations immediately if they were to support women's health via meaningful safety regulations for abortion facilities. When a PAC's money trumps a commonsense measure for women's health, it's time to say no to the money.

Cornerstone Policy Research and its legislative-advocacy arm, Cornerstone Action, are nonprofit non-partisan public policy organizations working to promote strong New Hampshire families.

NHDP - As Scott Brown & Republicans Make It Clear That They Will Not Defend Women’s Health

NHGOP Still Refusing to Release Anti-Choice Platform
Party Won't Come Clean on Personhood, Brown Decides Women’s Health Care Is Not An “Issue People Care About,” Garcia Declares Women Shouldn’t Be Able To Make Their Own Health Choices Because They’re “Emotional Roller Coasters,” and Burns Disparages Planned Parenthood

Manchester, NH – The NHGOP and its candidates can try, but they can no longer hide their anti-women agenda from New Hampshire voters. It’s been two weeks, and the NHGOP has continued to hide its party platform, approved on September 20th at its party convention, because it includes a 'Personhood' Amendment, which would make abortion—with no exceptions for rape, incest, or the life of the mother — and many common forms of birth control illegal. Meanwhile, the NHGOP’s candidates are showing their true colors. 
Scott Brown declared on Fox News that equal pay and contraceptive coverage aren't “issues that people care about.” Comments from Marilinda Garcia surfaced, in which she calls women "emotional rollercoasters,
 and said that only ‘2 percent’ of women care about women's issues. And then, Republican Executive Council candidate Bob Burns told a cable access show that he thinks Planned Parenthood is "handing out birth control like candy." All in the past week. 
"The New Hampshire Republican Party can't hide the fact that its platform and its candidates are pushing an aggressive and radical agenda that would take basic health care decisions away from women,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Julie McClain. “Scott Brown, Marilinda Garcia, Bob Burns, and the rest of the Republican ticket would roll back women's reproductive rights if they had their way.

"Despite the NHGOP’s attempts to shield its platform from the public, we know where its candidates stand: they think issues like pay equity, access to reproductive health care, and the right for women make their own choices are not a priority. If they had their way, women would lose basic freedoms, and that is wrong for New Hampshire women and men alike.” 

NHDP - Tea Party Extremist Marilinda Garcia Campaigns on Denying Health Coverage to Granite Staters

Refuses to Say Where She Gets Her Own Health Coverage

Granite State Voters Deserve to Know What Garcia is Hiding When it Comes to Her Own Health Care

Manchester, NH – Despite signing the Koch Brothers pledge calling to take awayhealth coverage from tens of thousands of Granite Staters, Tea Party extremist Marilinda Garcia refused to say where she received her own health care in an NHPR interview earlier this week.

While Garcia has made health care a central issue in her campaign, when asked directly about her own health coverage in a recent NHPR interview, she responded, “I… that’s my own issue.” After Garcia was given another chance to share later, she reiterated, “I don’t need to talk about that. Thank you.”

“Tea Party extremist Marilinda Garcia signed the Koch Brothers pledge calling to take away health care from tens of thousands of Granite State families, but refuses to say where she receives her own coverage,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Deputy Communications Director Bryan Lesswing. “If Marilinda Garcia is going to make denying health coverage to hard-working Granite Staters a central part of her campaign, then voters deserve to know what she is hiding when it comes to her own health care."

See an excerpt from the interview below or the full NHPR story here:


But when asked about her own health care coverage, Garcia demurred.

Garcia: “I… that’s my own issue.”

NHPR: “So you don’t want to say?”

Garcia: “No that’s fine, I don’t need to share everything.”

NHPR: “I bet it will come up again. Probably that’s something the media will want to know, with you making health care an issue in your campaign.”

Garcia: “My constituents talk to me so I am not here running on my own issues. I am expressing what they come up with.“

NHPR: “Is it fair to say you are not getting your health care through Obamacare, through the (federal) exchange?”

Garcia: “I don’t need to talk about that. Thank you.”
