|Concord - The New Hampshire Republican State Committee today slammed Senator Jeanne Shaheen's latest attempt to reposition herself on ObamaCare. The Hill today reports that Shaheen is joining with Senators Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Mark Udall (D-CO) and Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) to draft a "multifaceted plan to rework parts of ObamaCare."
"I'm not satisfied yet," Senator Shaheen told The Hill. "I'm still talking to people in New Hampshire to see what challenges we're facing."
"The 'challenges' that New Hampshire is facing are a direct result of Senator Shaheen's deciding vote for ObamaCare. Senator Shaheen refused to listen to the serious concerns voiced by her constituents and helped her liberal party leadership ram this terrible law through Congress," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Senator Shaheen's efforts to 'rework' ObamaCare are nothing more than a desperate stunt designed to prop up her re-election campaign. Fortunately, New Hampshire voters are smart enough to see through her dishonest political posturing and hold her accountable for imposing this disastrous law on Granite State families."

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on a new video that surfaced of Representative Annie Kuster dodging a question on Benghazi
"It is sad that the people of the Second District are represented by an ill-informed politician like Congresswoman Annie Kuster who refuses to answer basic questions from her constituents. Congresswoman Kuster's unwillingness to state her views on an important issue like Benghazi proves that she isn't living up to the standards that Granite Staters expect from their elected officials. It's time for Congresswoman Kuster to stop dodging questions and start being up front and honest about her positions."
Harry Reid Doubles Down on Broken
ObamaCare Promise - Will Jeanne Shaheen?
Harry Reid insists "What [President Obama] said was true. If you want to keep the insurance you have you can keep it."
This week Majority Leader Harry Reid doubled down on one of the biggest political deceptions in modern history. Reid insisted "I still go back and say what I said earlier. What [President Obama] said was true. If you want to keep the insurance you have you can keep it."
This raises a significant question: Does Jeanne Shaheen agree with Harry Reid that Granite Staters will still be able to keep their health care if they like it? If Reid's claim is true, why is Shaheen promoting legislation that seems to run counter to that claim?
Despite Jeanne Shaheen's repeated promises otherwise, 22,000 Granite Staters' health insurance policies are in jeopardy. That reality is because Shaheen was the deciding vote for ObamaCare and even joined Senate Democrats to support the very ObamaCare rule that's responsible for the health insurance cancellations that have caused so much consternation for more than a month.
"For the last three years, Jeanne Shaheen, Barack Obama and Harry Reid repeatedly made blatantly false promises about ObamaCare," said NRSC Press Secretary Brook Hougesen."Now that Harry Reid insists that the promise they made was true, does Jeanne Shaheen stand by it as well? After all the deceptions, lies and broken promises about ObamaCare over the last four years, Granite Staters have a hard time believing anything that Jeanne Shaheen and her liberal friends in Washington say about the unpopular law."
Senate Democrats Voted Unanimously To Support The ObamaCare Rule That's Responsible For The Cancellation Of People's Health Insurance. "In September 2010, Senate Republicans brought a resolution to the floor to block implementation of the grandfather rule, warning that it would result in canceled policies and violate President Barack Obama’s promise that people could keep their insurance if they liked it....On a party line vote, Democrats killed the resolution, which could come back to haunt vulnerable Democrats up for re-election this year....The rule set up the criteria for what insurance plans would be grandfathered, or exempted, from the new Obamacare requirements."

|Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn called on Governor Maggie Hassan to state her position on a gas tax increase. The Nashua Telegraph (12/4/13) reports that Hassan's Transportation Commissioner called for a new gas tax hike yesterday.
"A devastating gas tax hike during a recession is bad policy, and it will unfairly burden commuters and hurt small businesses. Governor Hassan needs to tell her constituents if she agrees with her Transportation Commissioner's renewed calls for a gas tax hike on working families.
"Unlike former Governor John Lynch, Governor Hassan has repeatedly refused to rule out a gas tax increase. Its time for Hassan to follow Lynch's lead and protect Granite Staters by finally pledging to veto any increase in the gas tax."
|Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn called on Congresswoman Annie Kuster to denounce State Representative Peter Sullivan (D-Manchester) for using sexist language and imagery against congressional candidate Marilinda Garcia. In a series of tweets yesterday, Sullivan attacked Garcia by comparing her to reality TV star Kim Kardashian (NH Journal, 10/25/13)
"For too long women in our society have been judged by their appearance rather than their accomplishments and made subject to the ignorant assaults of men like Peter Sullivan. If our daughters are to have any chance of pursuing their dreams in a society that is free of fabricated limitations and unjust personal assaults then so-called leaders like Representative Annie Kuster must call upon the Democrat Party to put an en end to their offensive and chauvinistic rhetoric."
