Concord - The New Hampshire Republican State Committee today blasted Senator Jeanne Shaheen's decision to support President Obama's disastrous deal with Iran and called on likely-Senate candidate Maggie Hassan to denounce it.
"Once again, Senator Jeanne Shaheen has decided to blindly support President Obama's disastrous foreign policy agenda that has diminished American's standing on the global stage and threatened our national security. President Obama's reckless deal will not only undermine our strong alliance with Israel, it will allow the Iranian regime to develop a nuclear weapon in the future," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "As a likely candidate for the United States Senate, Governor Maggie Hassan has a responsibility to speak out against the Obama Administration's reckless Iran agenda. Granite Staters have a right to know if likely Senate candidate Hassan is willing to march in lock step with President Obama as he pushes irresponsible foreign policies that will make our world a more dangerous place to live."
Last month, Governor Hassan weighed in on the Iran deal and offered a "non-committal" response according to WMUR-TV.
In March, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed Congress and vigorously denounced President Obama's proposed deal with Iran. The Prime Minister has called the agreement a "historic mistake for the world."
Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn issued the following statement today applauding Executive Councilors Chris Sununu, David Wheeler and Joe Kenney for standing up for taxpayers by voting against a state contract with Planned Parenthood:
"The appalling videos showing Planned Parenthood executives discussing the sale of human body parts have raised serious and legitimate concerns. Instead of calling for an investigation of Planned Parenthood's potentially criminal activity, Governor Hassan has turned a blind eye to this controversy and tried to give more taxpayer dollars to this scandal-plagued organization.
"This isn't a matter of being pro-choice or pro-life. It's about ensuring that public dollars are not being given to a company that may be engaged in criminal activity. We applaud Councilors Sununu, Wheeler and Kenney for standing up for taxpayers by refusing to fund Planned Parenthood and calling for an official investigation of its practices. It's time for Governor Hassan to put politics aside and work with the Commissioner of Health and Human Services and the Executive Council to identify alternative health care providers to cover the services that were included in this contract."
Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on Governor Maggie Hassan refusing to call for an investigation Planned Parenthood's activities in New Hampshire:
"Anybody who has watched the horrific videos of Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of human body parts knows that there is ample evidence to warrant an investigation of the organization's potentially criminal activities. As a result, the governors of Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Indiana, Georgia and Kansas have responded appropriately by calling for reviews of Planned Parenthood's operations in their states. Planned Parenthood has been a major political donor to Governor Hassan's political campaigns, and it's clear that her unwillingness to call for an investigation in New Hampshire is an attempt to cover up potential wrongdoing committed by one of her biggest financial supporters. Her outrageous behavior is another indication that Governor Hassan is focused on standing up for her political cronies instead of protecting taxpayers and serving the best interests of all Granite Staters."
