Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Shea-Porter Ad Offers no Solutions, only Negative Soundbites  

In a Revealing Ad, Shea-Porter Offers No Plan for Future

In response to Congresswoman Shea-Porter's release of her first campaign ad, Jay Ruais, Campaign Manager, issued the following statement;

"Congresswoman Shea-Porter's first ad is revealing, it is abundantly clear she has decided to focus entirely on putting her political career over the needs of Granite Staters. She offers no solutions, only soundbites, no plans, only partisan politics, no compromise only conflict. Her six years in Washington have brought us an erosion of the middle class, a stunningly weak economy, and a "fix" to health care that continues to leave millions uninsured, health care costs increasing and more unemployment. New Hampshire deserves a representative who will solve problems and listen to them, Frank Guinta is that leader."

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Shea-Porter Gives Herself a C+

Congresswoman Shea-Porter Can't Fool New Hampshire

In an interview yesterday with WKXL Concord, Congresswoman Shea-Porter gave the Obama Administration a "B- or C+ grade". Given the fact she votes with democrats 94% of the time, she is effectively giving herself a generous grade of a C+.

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

"Despite the admitted lack of a foreign policy, despite the crisis on the southern border, despite the continued failures with ObamaCare, and despite a still struggling economy and ever increasing federal debt, Carol Shea-Porter gives the Obama Administration and herself a passing grade?

While the Congresswoman knows the route out of New Hampshire quite well, she is all over the map when it comes to justifying her unwavering approval of the Obama Administration. The Congresswoman may think that simply refusing to hold a town hall would shield us from this obvious contradiction, but New Hampshire voters know and deserve better."

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Does Shea-Porter Care? An ObamaCare Nightmare  

Will the Congresswoman Help her Constituent and Neighbor?

Yesterday, the New Hampshire Insurance Department turned down a Rochester resident's request to include her doctor and other services associated with Frisbie Memorial Hospital in the established provider network.

She found herself in this position because Frisbie Memorial Hospital in Rochester was excluded from the ObamaCare Exchange along with nine other hospitals in New Hampshire. Because of its exclusion she has now been denied access to Frisbie's services.

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

"They said we could keep our plans, we cannot. They said we could keep our doctors, we cannot. They said costs would decrease, they have not. And now Congresswoman Shea-Porter's neighbor and constituent has been undeniably hurt by the legislation she championed. Why should we believe the Congresswoman when she claims the situation will improve in 2015 when nearly every campaign talking point she has used has proven to be inaccurate or intentionally misleading? Does the Congresswoman plan to reach out and assist her? Will she work to replace ObamaCare with meaningful reforms? Or, will she continue to be inaccessible, ineffective and indifferent to the needs of Granite Staters?

NHGOP CHALLENGES SHAHEEN, HASSAN, SHEA-PORTER AND KUSTER TO STAND WITH BIDEN IN NEW HAMPSHIRE 

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today challenged Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Governor Maggie Hassan, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter and Congresswoman Annie Kuster to stand with Vice President Joe Biden during his trip to the Granite State next week. Biden is scheduled to appear in Portsmouth on Wednesday.

 

"President Obama and Vice President Obama are running one of the most embarrassing and incompetent administrations in history, and their failed leadership is extremely unpopular in the Granite State. Senator Shaheen, Governor Hassan, Congresswoman Shea-Porter and Congresswoman Kuster have all have all ignored the will of their constituents and blindly championed the disastrous Obama-Biden agenda," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Shaheen, Hassan, Shea-Porter and Kuster should all embrace the Vice President while he's in New Hampshire with the same enthusiasm that they have embraced his failed policies."

 

In the latest WMUR/UNH poll, only 37% of voters approve of the job that Barack Obama is doing as president.
