NHGOP STATEMENT ON SENATE ETHICS COMPLAINT ON SHAHEEN FUNDRAISING 

NHGOP Banner

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement on an ethics complaint filed today regarding a fundraising email for Senator Jeanne Shaheen's campaign. The email was sent by liberal Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren's taxpayer-funded chief of staff (Boston Herald, 9/28/13).

"At a time when our government is on the verge of a shutdown, it is disgraceful that Senator Jeanne Shaheen would use a taxpayer-funded employee working for a Massachusetts liberal to raise money for her campaign. This is the latest example of a troubling pattern of ethically questionable fundraising activities conducted by Senator Shaheen that includes her decision to skip a key senate summit to attend a Wall Street fundraiser. She continues to remind voters that she is focused on raising campaign cash instead of serving the people of New Hampshire.

"Its sad that somebody like Jeanne Shaheen, who lacks the integrity and record of accomplishment that Granite Staters expect from their elected officials, represents our great state in the Senate. Its time to replace her in 2014 with a fiscally responsible Republican who will work to cut taxes, control runaway government spending and create jobs for middle class families."

NH GOP - KUSTER AND SHEA-PORTER SUPPORT MORE DEBT, OPPOSE CUTS TO RECKLESS GOVERNMENT SPENDING 

NHGOP Banner

Concord - Representatives Annie Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter sent a letter to President Obama yesterday supporting his plan to increase the debt limit without cutting wasteful government spending. Our national debt currently stands at over $16.7 trillion.

 

"It is disgraceful that Representatives Kuster and Shea-Porter are willing to saddle our country with more debt and refuse to work across the aisle to cut wasteful government spending," said New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Kuster and Shea-Porter would rather give Barack Obama a blank check and push our country to the brink of insolvency because they lack the courage required to get our fiscal house in order."

 

A recent poll conducted by Bloomberg News (9/26/13) shows that 61% of Americans reject the radical Obama-Kuster-Shea-Porter plan to raise the debt limit without controlling wasteful spending.

 

"Despite overwhelming opposition from their constituents, Representatives Shea-Porter and Kuster are willing to get in line and blindly follow President Obama's reckless fiscal agenda. They are reminding Granite Staters that they have gone to Washington and lost touch with New Hampshire's fiscally responsible values." said Horn.

NH GOP - NH DEMS SETTLE ON INCOME TAX SUPPORTING, THIRD TIER PRESIDENTIAL HOPEFUL FOR ANNUAL DINNER

NHGOP Banner

Long Shot Candidate O'Malley Responsible For $9.5 Billion In Tax Hikes Since Taking Office

 

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley keynoting the New Hampshire Democrats annual dinner.

 

"Its sad that the only speaker New Hampshire Democrats could attract for their annual dinner is a desperate, self promoting, third tier presidential hopeful with a disastrous tax-and-spend record.

 

"During his abysmal terms in office, Governor Martin O'Malley implemented crushing new regulations, job-killing policies and $9.5 billion in new taxes. He even raised his state income tax and punished working families with a disastrous gas tax hike.

 

"By honoring a liberal, income tax supporting extremist at their annual dinner, Democrats have proven that they are widely out of step with New Hampshire's fiscally responsible values. Martin O'Malley's disastrous jobs record and reckless agenda reminds Granite Staters that it's important to elect a fiscally responsible Republican governor in 2014 who will preserve the New Hampshire Advantage."

NHGOP STATEMENT ON PRIVATE INSURANCE OPTION 

NHGOP Banner

 

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on the Democrats' desperate attacks on a private insurance option:

 

"Instead of trying to find real health care solutions, Democrats are sticking to their tired liberal talking points and the proposing more big government policies that will result in reckless spending and higher taxes. They are so beholden to their radical agenda that they refuse to consider anything other than an expensive expansion of government insurance that will force New Hampshire to impose an income tax on working families.

 

"Granite Staters want their elected officials to find new and innovative ways to expand health care access without bankrupting our state and our country. Republicans are exploring every option to find a fiscally responsible way to accomplish this goal, while Democrats are focused on distorting the truth and misleading Granite Staters.   

 

"Democrats continue to remind voters that they have no new ideas and have lost touch with New Hampshire's fiscally responsible values."

NHGOP STATEMENT ON OBAMACARE LIMITING PATIENT CHOICE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE

NHGOP Banner

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on new information about ObamaCare limiting patient choice in New Hampshire. Representatives from Anthem told the Legislature that ObamaCare's taxes, fees and regulations forced them to significantly reduce the number of hospitals in their network.

 

"Today's announcement proves that President Obama, Senator Shaheen, Congresswoman Kuster and Congresswoman Shea-Porter misled New Hampshire when they dishonestly claimed that ObamaCare would not limit patient choice. The crushing tax hikes, increased fees and onerous regulations mandated by this disastrous legislation will reduce health care access for thousands of Granite Staters who purchase policies on and off of ObamaCare exchanges. It will sever the relationship between many patients and their doctors, and force them to travel greater distances to receive care.  

 

"It is also extremely troubling the Hassan Administration knew about these devastating reductions to Anthem's hospital network for over two months, but failed to inform the public. Governor Hassan tried to conceal this plan and blindly followed orders from government bureaucrats in Washington to impose ObamaCare on New Hampshire families. The Governor needs to explain why she has remained silent and failed to protect working families from the catastrophic consequences of ObamaCare."
