NHGOP STATEMENT ON SENATE GAS TAX VOTE 

NHGOP Banner

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement on the Senate vote to raise the gas tax:

 

"A gas tax hike during challenging economic times is wrong for New Hampshire because it will unfairly burden the middle class and hurt small businesses. Democrat Governor John Lynch was right when he vigorously opposed a gas tax increase and said that the state needs to do a better job managing its existing funds instead of trying to take more money out of the pockets of working families. By vowing to sign this tax hike, Governor Maggie Hassan continues to prove that she is no John Lynch, and that she is out of touch with New Hampshire's fiscally responsible values."

 

Background: Governor John Lynch: "Before we consider the need for additional revenue - which I don't think is there - we need to manage the funds that we have today, which we are not doing well," he said in a meeting with editors from The Citizen and Foster's Daily Democrat.

NHGOP STATEMENT ON VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN'S VISIT TO NEW HAMPSHIRE

NHGOP Banner

Concord - The New Hampshire Republican State Committee today released the following statement on Vice President Biden's trip to New Hampshire:

 

"Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Representative Annie Kuster and Representative Carol Shea-Porter understand that the job-killing Obama-Biden agenda is wildly unpopular in New Hampshire. That's why they refused to attend the vice president's event in Nashua despite the fact that they have all voted in lock step with the Obama Administration," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "New Hampshire Democrats can run, but they cannot hide from their unwavering support for the failed Obama policies that are crushing small businesses and forcing working families to lose their health insurance. In November, Granite Staters will hold them accountable for their misplaced priorities and replace them with fiscally responsible Republicans who can return fiscal sanity to Washington."

NH GOP - AS BIDEN HEADS TO GRANITE STATE, NHGOP LAUNCHES NEW WEB VIDEO: "99 PERCENT"

NHGOP Banner

Concord - After Senator Shaheen refused to say whether President Obama would join her on the campaign trail while at the same time acknowledging she cast the deciding vote for ObamaCare, the New Hampshire Republican Party released a new web video today, called "99 Percent."

 

The video comes one day before Vice President Biden sets foot in New Hampshire.

 

The spot highlights Shaheen ducking questions from reporters about President Obama, who called Shaheen a "great senator" in an interview last week. It also includes Shaheen refusing to comment on new media reports indicating ObamaCare would lead to health care premiums "skyrocketing" in smaller states like New Hampshire.

 

The video concludes with a picture of President Obama and Senator Shaheen standing side-by-side, and note the uphill battle she faces separating herself from the unpopular president, given her record of voting with him 99 percent of the time.

 

"Senator Shaheen can run, but she can't hide from her loyal and unwavering support of the Obama-Biden agenda," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Every time the president has needed her, Senator Shaheen has been there for him, including the tie-breaking vote that gave us ObamaCare. With Vice President Biden in New Hampshire tomorrow, Senator Shaheen should explain why she has voted for the Obama-Biden agenda 99 percent of the time."

TRANSCRIPT: "99 PERCENT"

 

TEXT: Why won't Jeanne Shaheen invite President Obama to campaign with her?

 

REPORTER: Would you like him to come here?

 

JEANNE SHAHEEN: I think - we don't know whether he will come here or not

 

REPORTER: The reason that might become a problem for you, some say, the Republicans say is because Obamacare is unpopular up here, and they say, if it weren't for you, there would be no Obamacare, to which you say?

 

SHAHEEN: Well, the Affordable Care Act was passed by 60 votes, so...

 

TEXT: Shaheen votes with Obama 99 percent of the time

 

CONSTITUENT: Senator Shaheen, do you have a response to today's newspaper article that says that health care premiums under Obamacare will skyrocket in small states like New Hampshire? Senator any response to today's news article in The Hill? No Senator?

 

REPORTER: There's no question his approval ratings have been down in New Hampshire, and Jeanne Shaheen's going to have to find a way to separate herself from him, even though she's voted with him 99 percent of the time.

NHGOP CALLS ON SHAHEEN, HASSAN, KUSTER AND SHEA-PORTER TO APPEAR WITH BIDEN IN NASHUA

NHGOP Banner

Concord - The New Hampshire Republican State Committee today called on Senator Shaheen, Governor Hassan and Representatives Kuster and Shea-Porter to appear with Vice President Joe Biden during his upcoming trip to New Hampshire. Biden will visit Nashua on Tuesday, March 25th.

 

"Senator Shaheen, Governor Hassan and Representatives Kuster and Shea-Porter have all been enthusiastic backers of the failed Obama-Biden agenda that has hurt New Hampshire families. They should use the vice president's trip as an opportunity to appear with him and personally defend their unwavering support for ObamaCare, the president's job killing tax increases and his radical policies that will increase the cost of energy for the middle class," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "In Washington, Jeanne Shaheen blindly takes orders from her party leadership and votes with President Obama and Vice President Biden 99 percent of the time. She should embrace the vice president while he is in Nashua because she is nothing more than a rubber stamp for the Obama-Biden Administration."

 

Embattled Senator Jeanne Shaheen has refused to say if she would welcome President Obama and Vice President Biden to the Granite State to campaign with her (WMUR, 3/20/14.)

 

This month, Governor Hassan skipped President Obama's trip to New England that was attended by every other northeast Democrat governor (Union Leader, 3/5/14.)

 

According to a recent UNH poll 51% of New Hampshire adults disapprove of the job Obama is doing as president and only 42% approve
