Kuster's Secrets...

Annie Kuster

Why is Kuster Hiding?

Congresswoman Annie Kuster has continually avoided facing her constituents to discuss issues they are concerned with. During her entire first term in office, she has not hosted a single Town Hall meeting where Granite Staters could ask her questions about her positions on a failing Obamacare, the skyrocketing federal deficit, or the Veterans Administration scandal. Even when she was asked about topical issues at scripted events, Congresswoman Kuster has avoided answering questions like she did when a New Hampshire resident requested a response on the attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya. This leads Granite Staters to wonder: 'Why is She Hiding?'

Back in July of 2008, New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley was quoted in a Concord Monitor article saying "the voters of New Hampshire expect their public officials to be open and available to the public."

Almost six years later, Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Governor Maggie Hassan, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01), and Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) have been anything but "open and available" with their constituents. If anything, they have been the most hidden and isolated representatives our state has ever seen.

Zero. Zilch. Nada. No matter how you say it, that's the number of public Town Hall meetings Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01) and Rep. Anne McLane-Kuster (NH-02) have hosted on ObamaCare since being sworn into office in January. It has even been longer than that since Senator Jeanne Shaheen hosted a public forum for Granite Staters to discuss the most important topic of the day. New Hampshire's "ObamaCare Trio" have made it their mission to avoid us, their constituents.

Two fiscally conservative groups plan to protest all three Democratic members of the New Hampshire delegation next week as their leaders claim they’ve all avoided holding town hall meetings on the Affordable Care Act.

‘Summertime and the livin’ is easy,” wrote the novelist DuBose Heyward in the lyrics to a famous George Gershwin song. He could have served in Congress, where members take the entire month of August off whether they’ve accomplished anything meaningful or not. They call it the “August recess.”

The “livin’ is easy” part may be interrupted – though we hope not rudely – next week when the three Democratic members of the state’s congressional delegation face protests from two conservative groups that plan to picket the offices of Rep. Ann Kuster, Rep. Carol Shea-Porter and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen. Cornerstone Action and Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire want the trio to hold town hall-style meetings where they have to field tough questions about their support of President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act. Critics of the law say the three are avoiding their constituents.
