NH GOP - SENATOR TED CRUZ TO NH FOR NHGOP DAY OF ACTION RALLIES 

NHGOP Banner

Concord - New Hampshire Republican Committee State Chairman Jennifer Horn today announced that U.S. Senator Ted Cruz will join the NHGOP for two Day of Action rallies in Nashua and Manchester on Saturday, April 12, 2014. 

 

"Two of the most important ways we will win are by standing for principle and standing up to Make DC Listen. That's what the grassroots in New Hampshire are doing on Saturday -- and it's a critical part of the effort to turn this country around," said Senator Cruz. 

 

"We are pleased to have Senator Cruz join us for a Day of Action in New Hampshire.  His enthusiasm for liberty will energize local New Hampshire grassroots activists during this important election year," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Sending Republicans to Concord and Washington is the only way we will begin to undo the damage done to our country by Democrats like Barack Obama and Jeanne Shaheen, who has voted with the president 99 percent of the time and is responsible for imposing ObamaCare on New Hampshire families."

 

The free New Hampshire Day of Action will have Republican activists across the state learning and using new technology to reach out to voters in their communities.  These rallies kick off voter outreach efforts that will take place throughout the day in every county in New Hampshire.

 

The free NHGOP Day of Action Rallies with Senator Ted Cruz will be held on April 12, 2014 at the following times and locations:

 

 

10:00am                      Greater Nashua NHGOP Day of Action Rally

NH GOP - STUDY: HEALTH INSURANCE PREMIUMS UP 90% IN NH BECAUSE OF OBAMACARE

NHGOP Banner

Concord - An independent study released today shows that health care premiums are "skyrocketing" and have increased 90% in New Hampshire because of ObamaCare. Forbes Magazine reports that premiums "are showing the sharpest increases perhaps ever" because of a "combination of four factors set in motion by ObamaCare: Commercial underwriting restrictions, the age bands that don't allow insurers to vary premiums between young and old beneficiaries based on the actual costs of providing the coverage, the new excise taxes being levied on insurance plans, and new benefit designs."

 

"This survey confirms that ObamaCare is an unmitigated disaster that is raising the cost of health care for the middle class. Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Governor Maggie Hassan and Representatives Annie Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter have enthusiastically championed ObamaCare and they are directly responsible for imposing it on New Hampshire," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Senator Shaheen could have stopped this disastrous law. Instead she chose to vote in lockstep with President Obama as she has done 99 percent of the time. Thanks to her, working families are losing their health insurance, paying more for coverage, and being forced to give up their doctors. Senator Shaheen should be ashamed of herself and apologize for repeatedly lying to her constituents about the disastrous consequences of this terrible law." 

 

Morgan Stanley's healthcare analysts conducted the survey of insurance brokers from across the country.

NHGOP RELEASES NEW WEB VIDEO: "BROKEN PROMISES" 

NHGOP Banner

Video Highlights Jeanne Shaheen's Decades of Deception And Broken Promises

 

Concord - The New Hampshire Republican State Committee today released a new web video highlighting Senator Jeanne Shaheen's decades of broken promises. Shaheen has repeatedly misled New Hampshire with dishonest statements about ObamaCare, cuts to Medicare, deficit reduction and most notably, her phony pledge to oppose broad based taxes as governor.

 

"For decades Jeanne Shaheen has misled New Hampshire with dishonest statements, broken promises and outright lies. She falsely promised that people could keep their health insurance if they liked it under ObamaCare. She shamefully misled Granite State seniors into believing that she would protect their Medicare Advantage benefits. Shaheen dishonestly claimed that she would bring fiscal responsibility back to Washington and she tried to saddle New Hampshire with a disastrous sales tax that would have destroyed our low tax environment," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Jeanne Shaheen has proven that she is a deceptive, dishonest Washington politician who is incapable of telling the truth. New Hampshire voters are sick and tired of Shaheen's lies, and they are eager to replace her with a fiscally responsible Republican who will honor his or her promises."

JEANNE SHAHEEN'S BROKEN PROMISES:

 

 

BROKEN PROMISE:

 

US Senator Jeanne Shaheen in 2009: "Everyone will have the freedom to keep their health care plan if they like it."

 

FACT:

 

Millions of Americans have received health insurance cancellation notices as a result of ObamCare.

 

 

BROKEN PROMISE:

 

US Senator Jeanne Shaheen in 2009: "I think there is a lot of misinformation about where the cuts from Medicare are going to come from...they are going to make private insurers who offer Medicare advantage to pay the same amount that everybody else is getting under Medicare."

 

FACT

 

The Obama Administration has proposed significant cuts to Medicare Advantage rates that will affect 30 percent of all Medicare recipients - or 16 million seniors - nationwide that are enrolled in the program.

 

 

BROKEN PROMISE:

 

Former Governor Jeanne Shaheen in 2008: "I think we have to restore fiscal responsibility to Washington. End the practice of just putting in place programs without willing to say where the money is coming from.  We have got to begin to pay down our $10 trillion debt that forces us every day to go out and borrow money from China, or Japan, or other countries, and its now the fifth largest line item in the budget. We have got to do something about that debt."

 

FACT:

 

As a Senator, Jeanne Shaheen has voted for President Obama's fiscally irresponsible agenda 99 percent of the time and has done nothing to restore fiscal responsibility in Washington. Today our national debt stands at $17.5 trillion and counting.

 

 

BROKEN PROMISE:

 

State Senator Jeanne Shaheen in 1996: "I pledge to veto a sales or income tax, I've never supported a sales or income tax, I have never voted for one in the state senate, and as your governor, we wont have one."

 

FACT:

 

As governor, Shaheen broke her pledge, and in 2001 she tried to destroy the New Hampshire Advantage by proposing a sales tax.

NHGOP STATEMENT ON LATEST OBAMACARE TECHNICAL PROBLEMS 

NHGOP Banner

Concord - The New Hampshire Republican State Committee released the following statement today on ObamaCare's latest technical glitches. NBC News reports that HealthCare.gov crashed earlier this morning less than 24 hours before the enrollment deadline:

 

"Today's ObamaCare technical meltdown is a sad reminder of the failures of this terrible law and the utter incompetence of the Obama Administration. Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Governor Maggie Hassan and Representatives Annie Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter have enthusiastically championed ObamaCare despite the disastrous consequences that have been imposed on working families. They should all be embarrassed by this glitch and personally apologize to New Hampshire for continuing to blindly support President Obama and his destructive health care agenda."

NH GOP - SHAHEEN AT A LOSS ON OBAMACARE DURING TELE-TOWN HALL

NHGOP Banner

Blames 'Misinformation' for The Law's Problems
 
Concord - During a telephone town hall this week, U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) was asked by a middle-class New Hampshire citizen about why his health insurance rates are increasing under Obamacare, and her empty non-answer was telling. 
 
Shaheen's constituent, who is self-employed, began the exchange by telling his senator that he was originally excited by the prospects of health insurance reform because of the promises about more affordability. But now, his premium has nearly doubled, and he wants to know what's being done to fix the well-chronicled problems with the law.
 
Shaheen's response?  "Clearly, there's a lot of misinformation about the Affordable Care Act."
 
She goes on to say that "hopefully" things will get better for those experiencing problems, but she offers no solutions.
 
Audio of the entire exchange is available here: http://youtu.be/ZEhejeOi9-g
 
 "Senator Shaheen is so out-of-touch that she doesn't understand the frustrations of her constituents who are suffering as a result of her deciding vote for ObamaCare," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Rather than offering real solutions to skyrocketing premiums and limited health care options, Shaheen is merely offering half-hearted promises that 'hopefully' things will get better. We've seen first-hand from Barack Obama's disastrous presidency, which Senator Shaheen has supported 99 percent of the time, that hope and change is not a recipe for success. Instead of more empty rhetoric, Senator Shaheen should explain to her constituents why she cast the tie-breaking vote for Obamacare, and why she continues to blindly support a health care plan that is hurting the people she's supposed to be representing."
