Citizens For A Strong NH - "Extra Time" and "What to Cut"

(October 23, 2014) - Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire is launching a heavy, statewide, online advertisement buy, focusing on Senator Jeanne Shaheen and the negative effects of Obamacare's employer mandate. 


Last year, the Obama Administration announced it would delay the employer mandate portion of Obamacare until 2015. That decision was made shortly after Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire released its first television spot on Jeanne Shaheen titled, "What to Cut," back in June of 2013.

 

As we approach 2015, the Obama Administration still plans to move forward with enacting the mandate, and Shaheen has been silent on the issue. She has not asked for the delay to be extended or for a full repeal of the employer mandate.

 

The advertisements will alternate between the organization's new spot titled, "Extra Time," and the spot from last year titled, "What to Cut."

 

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

"While the Obama Administration delayed the employer mandate until 2015, we are now quickly approaching the time when that delay will expire and new action is required to stop the law's disastrous effects.

 

"President Obama proved that even he recognized the negative impact the employer mandate would have on Americans by delaying it last year.  Remarkably though, Senator Jeanne Shaheen has been silent on how she would address the fact that once the delay expires, many small businesses will still be forced to cut their employees' workdays to avoid new penalties and fees. New Hampshire families simply cannot afford to work less, and many will have to look for additional work, or go without. It is time for our state's senior senator to listen to her constituents, recognize her mistake in originally supporting the employer mandate, and finally work towards fully repealing it immediately."

Citizens For A Strong NH - E-Newsletter: Employer Mandate, protests, and more... 

 

Heavy Online Ad Buy: Discussing Jeanne Shaheen and the employer mandate

 

As reported in the NHJournal on Wednesday, we launched a heavy, statewide, online advertisement buy this week, focusing on Senator Jeanne Shaheen and the negative effects of Obamacare's employer mandate. 

Last year, the Obama Administration announced it would delay the employer mandate portion of Obamacare until 2015. That decision was made shortly after we released our first television spot on Jeanne Shaheen titled, "What to Cut," back in June of 2013.

 

As we approach 2015, the Obama Administration still plans to move forward with enacting the mandate, and Shaheen has been silent on the issue. She has not asked for the delay to be extended or for a full repeal of the employer mandate.

 

The advertisements will alternate between the organization's new spot titled, "Extra Time," and the spot from last year titled, "What to Cut."

Protests: Holding our elected officials accountable

Throughout the week, our volunteers have been busy holding Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Governor Maggie Hassan, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter, and Congresswoman Annie Kuster accountable for hiding from their constituents at protests around the state.

 

Over the past couple of years, the four aforementioned elected officials have made it a point to avoid public town hall meetings, or other forums, where average Granite Staters could discuss the important issues facing our state and country.  

 

If you are interested in joining them for other visibility events next week, please email Mike@StrongNH.com for more information.

          

 

 
 

No response: Governor Maggie Hassan won't say whether she still supports President Obama

On Friday, we caught up with Governor Maggie Hassan.

While Governor Hassan has been a strong supporter of President Obama's liberal policies, when asked, she would not answer whether she voted for President Obama or whether she still supports his failed agenda.

NH Tea Party Coalition - Beware Outside Groups Posing as the "Tea Party" from NH

 

Door to door campaigns for candidates conducted by groups having no affiliation in this state

It has come to our attention that a group from outside New Hampshire calling itself "Tea Party Patriots" has been conducting a door-to-door campaign endorsing candidates in NH.

Residents should be advised that "Tea Party Patriots" is not a legitimate tea party but a GOP PAC established in 2009 using the name of the movement popularized in 2007. "Tea Party Patriots"  was started by GOP fundraiser gurus and consultants. Its leaders have managed to extract thousands of dollars from unsuspecting conservatives who have no idea that most of the money goes for office overhead and the salaries of the GOP operatives who run the group.

Groups such as "Tea Party Patriots",  "Tea Party Express", and others, do not have any organization in New Hampshire. But it did not take long for a misleading article to appear in THE HILL, a DC online newspaper, claiming that tea party members in NH had suddenly"fallen in line". Tea party members understood when they joined the NHTPC that it is NOT part of the GOP or any other political party.

http://thehill.com/blogs/221480-tea-partyers-fall-in-line

The legitimate tea party is a movement with a mission that focuses on issues and will never run, fund or endorse candidates. NHTPC is the only NH group that supports the original mission of the tea party movement.

Residents who found a door card proclaiming that the "tea party" endorses a particular candidate should be wary of these well-funded operatives who come from outside New Hampshire.
