Shaheen's Secrets...

Jeanne Shaheen

Why is Shaheen Hiding?

Senator Jeanne Shaheen has continually avoided answering questions about her record as New Hampshire's senior US Senator. From Obamacare to the IRS targeting of conservative groups, she continues to dodge questions about her tax and spend record, her 99% support for President Obama's agenda, and her refusal to hold a public town hall meetings. Granite Staters want to know, why is she hiding?

What’s worse than career politicians, like Senator Jeanne Shaheen, who supported the $787 billion ‘stimulus’ plan that did little for New Hampshire?  That her own business interests benefited from it. In fact, they did so to the tune of $78,000.

That is $78,000 of your hard-earned money she used to line her own pockets.  It’s no wonder she wants to avoid us and refuses to have open and public Town Hall meetings. Granite Staters deserve a senator who puts New Hampshire’s interests before those of her own.

Six years ago, Jeanne Shaheen was quick to attack then-Sen. John Sununu on the cost of gasoline. This was a time when New Hampshire consumers were paying around $4 a gallon. In television ads and on the stump, Shaheen argued that the senator deserved blame for not doing more to bring prices down.

Her supporters even held protests at his offices to highlight her position. One of her supporters went so far as to dress up as a gas pump to follow Sen. Sununu around at events claiming he wasn’t doing enough to “help the middle-class” deal with fuel prices. A creative way to highlight an issue? Possibly. Completely hypocritical in hindsight when reflecting on her first term? Absolutely.

Copies have been mailed to the three aforementioned offices and will be hand delivered to the district offices of Senator Shaheen and Congresswoman Shea-Porter as well.

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.

It's pretty uncommon for anyone to agree with another all of the time. Whether it's your spouse, family member, or even a friend, it is as rare as a public town hall meeting with Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter (and that's pretty rare) that we agree with each other on everything. That is unless you are Senator Jeanne Shaheen and President Barack Obama who apparently were on the same page in all but 1% of occasions last year. Maybe it's just me, but I certainly don't agree with this president, or any president, 99% of the time, and poll after poll shows that neither do most Granite Staters.

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.

After consulting with White House and Capitol Hill staff, the Office of Personnel and Management (OPM) announced that the federal government could continue to provide Congress with its existing health insurance coverage, forgoing Obamacare exchanges or any dramatic increase in out-of-pocket premium payments. Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire asked Sen. Shaheen, Rep. Shea-Porter and Rep. Kuster, who all support or voted for Obamacare,whether they would support this exemption that would allow them and their staff from participating in Obamacare like the rest of America. To date, none of our aforementioned representatives have responded to us.

‘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.

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.

Thanks to Senator Jeanne Shaheen's action last week, Granite Staters have had the unfortunate opportunity of experiencing a first row seat to the broken culture of Washington D.C.

On Monday, Senator Jeanne Shaheen was one of only two senators to miss a mandatory quorum meeting and vote on Senate filibuster rule changes. As reported by the Associated Press last evening, her office explained her absence as being due to "a scheduling conflict," but "refused to elaborate" on why she missed the vote.  The National Journal reported this vote was mandatory and that Senators can actually be arrested and brought to the Senate floor if they are absent.
