Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement on Senator Jeanne Shaheen filing legislation to extend ObamaCare's open enrollment period. This weekend the Wall Street Journal called Shaheen's plan a "ploy for...Democrats to distance themselves from ObamaCare while still embracing it."
"Senator Jeanne Shaheen was the deciding vote in favor of ObamaCare, and she is the reason why New Hampshire families are dealing with its disastrous consequences. Shaheen's disingenuous call for extension of ObamaCare's enrollment period is desperate political stunt designed to prop up her re-election campaign instead of actually helping working families. It will do nothing to help the thousands of Granite Staters who have received insurance cancellation notices and are facing a gap in coverage due to her support for ObamaCare. Its time for Senator Shaheen to join Presdient Obama in apologizing for imposing this debacle on her constituents and back real solutions to undo the damage caused by it."
