Innis For Congress - Help Stop Obama's Secrecy Agenda 

Barack Obama promised to have the most transparent administration in history. He failed.

Last week the Associated Press reported what many of us already know - government secrecy has increased dramatically under the Obama administration.

The Associated Press wrote, " More often than ever, the [Obama] administration censored government files or outright denied access to them last year under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act, cited more legal exceptions it said justified withholding materials and refused a record number of times to turn over files quickly that might be especially newsworthy ."

President Obama's secrecy agenda is putting our American dream at risk.

But instead of holding the President accountable for his actions, Nancy Pelosi and Congresswoman Shea-Porter have stood idly by and let it happen.

I have a different plan. When I announced my campaign for Congress last fall I pledged to start holding President Obama accountable for his actions, stop the National Security Agency from spying on American citizens and end political witch hunts at the IRS.

But I need your support to do it.

Will you help me stop President Obama's secrecy agenda by donating to our campaign?

It's time to send common sense New Hampshire values to Washington and help secure the American dream for future generations. Please consider donating $5, $25, $50, or more to help defeat Congresswoman Shea-Porter and start holding President Obama accountable.

Concord - After Senator Shaheen refused to say whether President Obama would join her on the campaign trail while at the same time acknowledging she cast the deciding vote for ObamaCare, the New Hampshire Republican Party released a new web video today, called "99 Percent."


The video comes one day before Vice President Biden sets foot in New Hampshire.


The spot highlights Shaheen ducking questions from reporters about President Obama, who called Shaheen a "great senator" in an interview last week. It also includes Shaheen refusing to comment on new media reports indicating ObamaCare would lead to health care premiums "skyrocketing" in smaller states like New Hampshire.


The video concludes with a picture of President Obama and Senator Shaheen standing side-by-side, and note the uphill battle she faces separating herself from the unpopular president, given her record of voting with him 99 percent of the time.


"Senator Shaheen can run, but she can't hide from her loyal and unwavering support of the Obama-Biden agenda," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Every time the president has needed her, Senator Shaheen has been there for him, including the tie-breaking vote that gave us ObamaCare. With Vice President Biden in New Hampshire tomorrow, Senator Shaheen should explain why she has voted for the Obama-Biden agenda 99 percent of the time."

TEXT: Why won't Jeanne Shaheen invite President Obama to campaign with her?


REPORTER: Would you like him to come here?


JEANNE SHAHEEN: I think - we don't know whether he will come here or not


REPORTER: The reason that might become a problem for you, some say, the Republicans say is because Obamacare is unpopular up here, and they say, if it weren't for you, there would be no Obamacare, to which you say?


SHAHEEN: Well, the Affordable Care Act was passed by 60 votes, so...


TEXT: Shaheen votes with Obama 99 percent of the time


CONSTITUENT: Senator Shaheen, do you have a response to today's newspaper article that says that health care premiums under Obamacare will skyrocket in small states like New Hampshire? Senator any response to today's news article in The Hill? No Senator?


REPORTER: There's no question his approval ratings have been down in New Hampshire, and Jeanne Shaheen's going to have to find a way to separate herself from him, even though she's voted with him 99 percent of the time.

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement in response to President Obama's strong endorsement of Senator Jeanne Shaheen. In an interview that aired on NECN last night, the president praised Shaheen as a "great senator."


"Jeanne Shaheen votes with President Obama 99 percent of the time and cast the deciding vote for his failed health care law. So its not surprising that the president is desperate to keep a loyal lackey like Jeanne Shaheen in the Senate to rubber stamp his disastrous agenda," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "If President Obama is really interested in promoting Senator Shaheen's candidacy, we strongly urge him to come to New Hampshire and personally campaign with her. Please - be our guest."


According to a recent UNH poll 51% of New Hampshire adults disapprove of the job Obama is doing as president and only 42% approve.



Rye – Scott Brown today responded to President Obama’s endorsement of Senator Shaheen by inviting her to bring him to New Hampshire to defend their health care law:

“President Obama and Jeanne Shaheen are joined at the hip. If it wasn't for Jeanne Shaheen, Obamacare would not have become the law of the land. He is going to do everything he can to help Jeanne Shaheen in this election, and today I am inviting her to bring him to New Hampshire to defend their health care law. Nothing will stop me from continuing to tell the truth about this disastrous health care law and its negative effects on the people of New Hampshire.”

Washington Post: Aid to Ukraine tangled up as Obama demands $63 billion for IMF
"Obama and his allies in the Democratic-majority Senate opportunistically linked legislation authorizing a $1 billion loan guarantee (and sanctions on Russia) to the separate, long-standing administration goal of overhauling the funding and governance of the International Monetary Fund, which Republicans in the House oppose. As a result, aid that should be moving urgently to Ukraine is bogged down."
