NHGOP CALLS ON SHAHEEN TO JOIN OBAMA IN APOLOGIZING FOR OBAMACARE DEBACLE

NHGOP Banner

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today called on Senator Jeanne Shaheen to join President Obama in apologizing for misleading people about the disastrous consequences of ObamaCare. In an interview with NBC News last night, the President bowed to mounting pressure and apologized for making false promises about being able to keep your health insurance under ObamaCare (New York Times, 11/7/2013.)

 

"Senator Jeanne Shaheen cast the deciding vote in favor of ObamaCare and she dishonestly promised her constituents that this disastrous law would allow them to keep their health insurance if they liked it. That statement was clearly false, but Senator Shaheen has refused to own up to her mistake and apologize to New Hampshire," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "If President Obama is willing to apologize for lying to the American people about the disastrous consequences of ObamaCare, Senator Shaheen should offer a similar apology for spreading the same lies. An apology won't undo the damage caused by ObamaCare, but Granite Staters expect their elected officials to be honest and admit when they are wrong."

 

In an October 15, 2009 speech on the floor of the Senate, Shaheen dishonestly claimed "everyone will have the freedom to keep their health care plan if they like it," under ObamaCare.

 

In an August 2009 teletown hall, Shaheen misled a voter from Salem who asked her if he could keep his health insurance under ObamaCare.

 

"If you have health coverage that you like you can keep it," said Shaheen.

NHGOP STATEMENT ON SENATE REPUBLICAN HEALTH CARE PLAN

NHGOP Banner

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on the health care plan proposed by Senate Republicans:

 

"Republicans and Democrats share the goal of expanding access to health care for New Hampshire's low income families. However, Republicans understand that the best way to reach this objective is to offer access to high quality private insurance instead of pushing them into a broken, financially struggling entitlement program.

 

"Senator Republicans have developed a sensible plan that helps low-income people get private insurance and prevents a fiscal crisis that will impose an income tax on Granite State families. They have worked across the aisle to develop a solution that is right for New Hampshire. It is time for Governor Hassan to put aside her rigid, partisan ideology and embrace this responsible plan that will help working families access the quality health care that they need."

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today announced that the party has hired Matt Mowers as its next Executive Director and Bobby Collins as State Field Director. Mowers recently served as Regional Political Director for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's successful re-election campaign. Collins, a former NHGOP Victory Field Representative, returns to the Granite State after serving as the Field Director of the Republican Party of Virginia

"Matt Mowers and Bobby Collins are extremely talented political operatives who will continue to build and expand our strong party infrastructure. They are seasoned and experienced professionals who have the skills that are needed to help New Hampshire Republicans win in 2014," said Chairman Jennifer Horn. "I am pleased that they have agreed to join our exceptional team and look forward to working with them."

"New Hampshire Republicans have an enormous opportunity to make significant gains in 2014 if they focus on the traditional Granite State principles of limited government and fiscal responsibility," said Mowers. "I am thrilled to join Chairman Horn's team, and I am eager to help our fiscally responsible candidates take back New Hampshire next November."

"I am excited to return to New Hampshire and rejoin the State Committee," said Collins. "New Hampshire Republicans can win in 2014 and I look forward to working with our state and federal candidates to help them run successful campaigns."

Since April 2013, Mowers served as Regional Political Director for Governor Christie's successful reelection campaign. In that role, he was responsible for managing political operations for eight counties encompassing 2.2 million voters, including the state's largest swing county. Before joining the Christie Campaign, Mowers served as a regional director for legislative and intergovernmental affairs in the New Jersey Governor's Office from 2010-2013. He previously served as the Executive Director of the Bergen County Republican Organization and managed several New Jersey state senate campaigns.

Bobby Collins has served as the Field Director for the Republican Party of Virginia since May and managed voter contact operations during the Commonwealth's 2013 elections. Before moving to Virginia, Collins served as a Victory Field Representative for the New Hampshire Republican Party in Nashua during the 2012 election cycle. He previously worked at the American Family Business Institute and interned for the New Jersey Republican State Committee.

NH GOP - MELTDOWN: SHAHEEN VENTS "OBAMACARE ANGER" IN PRIVATE MEETING WITH PRESIDENT 

NHGOP Banner

Concord - The Hill reports that President Obama "got an earful" today from nervous Senate Democrats, including Senator Jeanne Shaheen, over the disastrous rollout of ObamaCare. During a secret, two-hour meeting in Washington, panicked Senate Democrats vented about the failure of the president's signature legislative achievement.

 

"Senator Jeanne Shaheen cast the deciding vote for ObamaCare and dishonestly promised Granite Staters that they could keep their insurance policies if they liked them. Despite Shaheen's phony pledge, thousands of New Hampshire families are now receiving insurance cancellation notices because of the disastrous consequences of her vote," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Instead of complaining about ObamaCare in closed door meetings, Shaheen needs to publicly admit that she misled New Hampshire and immediately apologize for her shameful behavior."

 

In an October 15, 2009 speech on the floor of the Senate, Shaheen dishonestly claimed "everyone will have the freedom to keep their health care plan if they like it," under ObamaCare (Video Here.)

 

In an August 2009 teletown hall, Shaheen misled a voter from Salem who asked her if he could keep his health insurance under ObamaCare.

NHGOP CALLS ON SHAHEEN TO APOLOGIZE FOR PERSONALLY MISLEADING NEW HAMPSHIRE ON OBAMACARE

NHGOP Banner

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today called on Senator Jeanne Shaheen to apologize for repeatedly misleading New Hampshire voters on ObamaCare:

 

"Senator Jeanne Shaheen made blatantly false statements and personally misled her constituents into believing that they could keep their insurance policies under ObamaCare if they liked them. She needs to immediately admit that she was wrong and apologize for imposing this terrible law on New Hampshire families," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Instead of standing up for New Hampshire, Senator Shaheen also voted in lock step with her liberal party leadership against common sense legislation that would have prevented the cancellation of millions of insurance policies. The Senator has proven that she lacks the courage and independent leadership that is required to stand up to her own party and protect New Hampshire from the devastating consequences of ObamaCare."
