Citizens For A Strong NH - Shaheen said... 

Dear Granite Stater,
As reported by WMUR, our organization went up on the air today with a radio advertisement focusing on Senator Jeanne Shaheen. The ad uses audio from a recent Senator Shaheen tele-town hall. In that conference call, she continued her support for the new law and said that "we are beginning to see some positive results" from it.
Considering she cast the deciding vote for Obamacare and votes with the President 99% of the time, we aren't too surprised Senator Jeanne Shaheen still stands by the law even as it crumbles. However, her misguided and delusional belief that Granite Staters are seeing 'positive results' from a failing Obamacare would be laughable if it didn't have such serious consequences. 

From 22,000 Granite Staters being kicked-off their original healthcare plans to countless more who are facing a lack of hospital access, New Hampshire is hurting because of Senator Shaheen's vote for Obamacare. Our state's senior senator would do herself well to have an honest conversation with her constituents about how badly the failing law is hurting them and their families. Our advertisement continues to pressure Senator Shaheen to finally have that dialogue.

(April 7, 2014) - Today, Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire is releasing a web video focusing on then Senator-elect Jeanne Shaheen's comments in November of 2008 where she said that Granite Staters want a U.S. Senator who will be a "strong independent voice." She goes on to say, "I am going to be that senator" and continues by promising that she will "never hesitate to disagree with... the president to do what's right for New Hampshire."
The web video explains how Senator Shaheen has voted 99% of the time with President Barack Obama on issues ranging from the failed stimulus to Obamacare. It also encourages Granite Staters to contact our state's senior senator and ask her to stand with New Hampshire, not President Obama, on the issues that matter.

Derek Dufresne, spokesman for Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, released the following statement:


"Almost six years ago, Senator Jeanne Shaheen promised New Hampshire she would be a 'strong independent voice.' Ironically though, whether it was on Obamacare, a failed stimulus, higher taxes, or more spending, Senator Jeanne Shaheen sided with President Obama and leadership in Washington instead of her constituents.

"Senator Shaheen was right. Granite Staters do want a U.S. Senator who promises to reflect their voice. Sadly though, when she went to Washington, she replaced that pledge to New Hampshire with one to President Obama. We encourage Granite Staters to call Senator Jeanne Shaheen and remind her that she is supposed to represent their family's values, not those of the residents at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue."


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.



Rye – Scott Brown issued the following statement today on a new study showing that insurance premiums are going up 90 percent in New Hampshire because of ObamaCare:
"Today's study showing that insurance premiums are going up 90 percent in New Hampshire because of ObamaCare is the latest sad reminder of the consequences of this broken law. This is what happens when politicians put the interests of their national party ahead of the priorities of their state and vote 99 percent of the time with President Obama.  It's also the reason I am running for Senate: to get rid of this failed health care law and let states come up with their own solutions."
