NRSC - Shaheen Voted with Obama 98% of the time in '14 

October 23, 2014

His Policies are on the Ballot 

Jeanne Shaheen Voted with President Obama 
98% of the time in 2014

Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) has desperately tried to distance herself from Barack Obama, a president whom she voted with 99 percent of the time in 2013.

Unfortunately for Senator Shaheen, a new report by Congressional Quarterly/Roll Call shows that Jeanne Shaheen voted with Obama 98 percent of the time in 2014, even though a clear majority of Granite Staters voters disapprove of him. Turns out President Obama was right, his policies are on the ballot. 

"Jeanne Shaheen is no independent; this year she actually voted for President Obama's agenda an astounding 98% of the time," said NRSC Press Secretary Brook Hougesen. "President Obama is right, a vote for Jeanne Shaheen is a vote for his policies."

Boston Herald: “Sen. Jeanne Shaheen A No-Show At Multiple Terror-Related Hearings, Missing Key ISIS Warning”

“Shaheen missed an April 11, 2013, hearing on U.S. policy toward Syria in which a top U.S. Treasury official in charge of terrorist financing told Senate committee members that a new terrorist group, ISIS, had sprung up, ‘underscoring the danger this group poses for Syria and the world.’” (Joe Battenfeld, “Sen. Jeanne Shaheen A No-Show At Multiple Terror-Related Hearings, Missing Key ISIS Warning,” Boston Herald, 9/25/14)
  • “Records also show Shaheen didn’t show up for full committee hearings on counterterrorism policies, U.S. policy toward Iran and a host of others involving security and foreign policy.” (Joe Battenfeld, “Sen. Jeanne Shaheen A No-Show At Multiple Terror-Related Hearings, Missing Key ISIS Warning,” Boston Herald, 9/25/14)

Shaheen Supported President Obama’s Precipitous Withdrawal From Iraq

NRSC - Shaheen Defers to Obama on Ebola 

Shaheen Silent as Obama Picks Partisan,
DC Lobbyist as Ebola Czar 

The Obama Administration’s response to the Ebola virus has been roundly criticized as inept and incompetent. In fact, a former top advisor to Harry Reid told the Washington Post that the Administration's handling of Ebola feeds the "narrative that Democrats don't know how to govern and government is too large."

President Obama's response to the Ebola epidemic is to appoint partisan lobbyist Ron Klain as the Administration’s point man. As National Review explains "Ron Klain is a sharp-elbowed Democratic political operative with no medical expertise. Tapping him as 'Ebola czar' may not be the president’s best move when, as it is, no one can believe a word the Obama administration says. And that’s not just because Mr. Klain is yet another lobbyist recruited despite Mr. Obama’s vow that his administration would shun lobbyists."

Unfortunately, Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) not only refuses to hold the Obama Administration accountable for the slow response to Ebola entering our borders, but it appears that she has taken her marching orders from the White House on a serious matter of public health. Instead, Shaheen's Washington allies have resorted to spreading false and debunked claims, blaming others for the Administration's failures. President Obama's choice of Ron Klain as Ebola Czar is indefensible, yet Jeanne Shaheen once again refuses to hold the White House accountable.

"It is absurd that President Obama believes that a partisan lobbyist with zero medical experience should lead the national response to the Ebola epidemic, but Jeanne Shaheen is nowhere to be found," said NRSC Press Secretary Brook Hougesen. "Jeanne Shaheen apparently believes that a partisan Washington lobbyist like Ron Klain is an appropriate choice for this position, which speaks to her lack of judgment and her refusal to stand up to President Obama’s poor decisions - even on matters of public health and safety."


A Top Official At The National Institutes of Health Debunked Democrats False Claims That Budget Cuts Were To Blame For Lack Of Ebola Vaccine. "A top official at the National Institutes of Health disagreed on Sunday with the notion that an Ebola vaccine likely would have been discovered by now had it not been for federal budget cuts." (NIH Official: Budget Cuts Can't Be Blamed For Lack Of Ebola Vaccine, The Huffington Post10/20/2014)

The Washington Post’s Fact Checker Called Attacks Blaming Republicans For Cutting Ebola Research Funding “Absurd” And Gave It Four Pinocchios. “On many levels, this line of attack is absurd. Obama’s Republican predecessor oversaw big increases in public-health sector spending, and both Democrats and Republicans in recent years have broadly supported efforts to rein in federal spending. Sequestration resulted from a bipartisan agreement. In some years, Congress has allocated more money for NIH and CDC than the Obama administration requested. Meanwhile, contrary to the suggestion of the DCCC ad, there never was a specific vote on funding to prevent Ebola.” (Glenn Kessler, “The Absurd Claim That Only Republicans Are To Blame For Cuts To Ebola Research,” The Washington Post, 10/15/14)
