A web video released today is taking an across the board aim at both New Hampshire members of Congress and Senator Jeanne Shaheen, acosting the three Democrats for “running away” from Obamacare during the August recess.
Entitled “New Hampshire Democrats Ran Away on Obamacare,” the video released by Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire features footage from meetings across New Hampshire of the three dodging questions on the unpopular law.
“Sen. Shaheen, Rep. Shea-Porter and Rep. Kuster should be ashamed of themselves for continuing to hide from Granite Staters on the issue of Obamacare. While it might be because they are afraid of the ramifications their support for the failing law will have on their political careers, that is no excuse for running away and hiding from their constituents,” stated spokesman Derek Dufrense in a press release. “As August draws to a close, Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire continues to call on the three aforementioned ‘representatives’ to stop hiding and stop running away from Granite Staters on Obamacare. Our great state deserve better.”
The release further cited office protests and local news coverage as pressing the issue further.
Shaheen, along with Reps. Annie Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter, vocally backed Obamacare, despite its unpopularity in the Granite State and nationwide.
