Guinta For Congress (CD1) - She's What? Shea-Porter's Stunning ObamaCare Admission  

Shea-Porter Proves She's Out of Touch, Doubles Down on ObamaCare

MANCHESTER – In last night’s WMUR Debate, Congresswoman Shea-Porter named ObamaCare as her proudest accomplishment.  

KATHLEEN RONAYNE: “Can you tell us about one piece of legislation that you sponsored and led the way on that’s made a difference for New Hampshire?”

SHEA-PORTER: “Yes, I can. I’m very, very proud of the health care law.”

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

"Though the overwhelming majority of Granite Staters disapprove of ObamaCare, she defends the law.  Though 70,000 more Granite Staters could stand to lose their health insurance, she defends the law.  Though 17,000 Granite Staters will pay $23 million in fines next year, she defends the law.  Though access is decreasing while costs are increasing, she defends the law. Granite Staters deserve better.  We deserve a patient-centered, market-driven heath care approach, not the Obama/Shea-Porter one-size-fits-all failure that is ObamaCare."

NHDP - Associated Press: "Anthem: 2015 rates in health marketplace stay flat"

Associated Press: "Anthem: 2015 rates in health marketplace stay flat"

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The only company that sold health insurance under the federal health care overhaul law in New Hampshire this year says its average customer will see no increase in premiums in 2015.

Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield says its overall rates will remain flat, but some policyholders could see changes depending on their individual plans, their ages and whether or not they smoke.

Two other private insurance companies — Harvard Pilgrim and Assurant — and two cooperatives — Maine Community Health and Minuteman — will begin selling health plans when enrollment re-opens on Nov. 15 for coverage that takes effect in January.

Anthem plans to offer 11 individual plans and three group plans. The total number of plans available to individuals is expected to increase to more than 50.

Guinta For Congess (CD1) - Differences on Display at Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce Debate 

Shea-Porter Yet Again a Rubber Stamp for the Obama Agenda

MANCHESTER - This morning's Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce Debate at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics continued to reveal clear contrasts between Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter and Frank Guinta.

Jay Ruais, Campaign Manager for Frank Guinta, released the following statement:

"At the second debate in as many days, Congresswoman Shea-Porter doubled down on her support of the ObamaCare disaster and the President's failed economic agenda. Her continued rock solid support of ObamaCare is especially striking considering recent studies out from the Mercatus Center at George Mason University showing that ObamaCare will reduce the nationwide weekly employment rate by 3 percent and from USA Today showing that as many as 70,000 small-group policy holders in NH will have their plans cancelled this November. This debate showed why Frank is the clear choice for Granite Staters looking for an independent voice in Washington who will work to reduce regulation, lower taxes, and get our economy moving again."
