Ignorance or malice: Obamacare and NH's three Dems
Union Leader ^ | 11/16/2013 | Editorial Staff

Posted on 11/17/2013 2:47:07 AM PST by IbJensen

Jeanne Shaheen, Carol Shea-Porter and Annie Kuster owe New Hampshire an explanation. They backed the disaster that is Obamacare from the very beginning. Last week, with the law falling to pieces, they reiterated their strong support. The Titanic is sinking and they are praising its craftsmanship.

Can they really believe the lame defenses they are giving? Can they really expect the public to believe them?

On Thursday, after President Obama decreed that insurers would not be held to the law's coverage mandates, Kuster and Shea-Porter issued statements in response. Kuster's was emailed at 2:02 p.m. In it, she said she still supported the law because "we cannot go back to the days when insurance companies were free to deny coverage to those with preexisting conditions or drop people from their plans just because they get sick. I will continue to work with anybody who is serious about making this law work and ensuring that Granite Staters have access to the quality, affordable care they deserve."

Shea-Porter's statement was issued exactly 10 minutes after Kuster's. In it, Shea-Porter said, "we cannot go back to the days when health insurance companies could deny men and women coverage due to a preexisting condition, or cancel a person's policy when they need it most. I'll continue working to increase insurance options so everyone in New Hampshire has access to quality, affordable healthcare."

Almost identical statements, issued minutes apart. Do they think we are not paying attention? Do they think they can, even now, just spout White-House approved talking points and fool the people into thinking they are representing us?

Shaheen, Shea-Porter and Kuster are representing the Democratic Party, not the people of New Hampshire. Their statements on Obamacare always have reflected party-approved talking points.

Now they follow the White House's lead in pretending that the pain inflicted upon America by this law comes from minor flaws. It does not.

The insurance policy cancellations were intentional, not accidental. The whole point of Obamacare was to move people off of their existing plans and into government-approved coverage, then eventually onto government-provided coverage. This is why the law did not take effect until after the 2012 presidential election. Its intended effects were to be hidden until after Obama won a second term.

But the effects were no surprise. Numerous critics, including this newspaper, predicted that the law would throw people off of their insurance plans. In 2010, Senate Republicans proposed legislation to prevent that from happening. Every Senate Democrat, including Jeanne Shaheen, voted against it. Last week Shaheen, Shea-Porter and Kuster rushed to back a bill that does belatedly what the 2010 proposal would have done had Democrats not united to kill it.

Shaheen, Shea-Porter and Kuster cannot avoid hard questions about their support for the law by voting for this fix or issuing more ghost-written talking points. Either they didn't know this would happen, in which case they supported out of blind partisan loyalty a law they did not understand, or they knew it would happen and did not tell the people. New Hampshire is being represented in Washington by three people whose support for one of the most important laws of our time was rooted in either ignorance or malice. How comforting.

Shaheen, an Obama shill who blames the debacle known as Lucifercare on the Tea Party, is an example of what happens when blue state leftist move to red states and take their politics with them.

She is a typical Democrat female: homely, abrasive and wrong-headed! Voters, if they possess a functioning brain should dump her!

“...have access to the quality, affordable care they deserve.”

They always end their pathetic excuses with something we deserve — how about earning it!

Of course - the lazy no good liberals that vote for people like this don’t want to earn anything - they want it given to them from another person’s pocket!

And your other rep is that back-stabbing, campaign liar, treacherous minimccain Kelli Ayotte. I alway thought NH folks believed in freedom and US values. What's with the voting?

New Hampshire-—isn’t that the State that has the first primary? Aren’t hey responsible for Romney, Dole, McCain? Don’t they pick the front runner in the Republican party?

Aren’t they really responsible for nObama in the White House?

What this county needs is to stop this first primary disaster by going somewhere else with it’s first primary.

I don’t know what all the fuss is about. Starting January 1, my coverage will be far more comprehensive than anything I’ve ever had before. I now get a free annual “wellness exam,” which includes a mammogram and pap test.

These new benefits may or may not be worth the significantly higher monthly premium, nor the massively increased deductible, since I am a man; but I also have maternity benefits now too, which must count for something, right?

At the very least, I’m grateful for the mental health coverage, as I’m going crazy trying to understand why I’m covered and paying for all this stuff I could never ever possibly even use....

I think there's this multimillionaire yoghurt guy in New Hampshire (because he didn't want to pay Vermont taxes) who fronted the money for all Three Weird Sisters…He's the Stone-something dairy family…maybe he's a billionaire by now.

Anyone in NH know who I'm talking about? You should direct your ire up Minnepesakee way...

Local “right winger” has been actually going out on net to post names of those who have obviously been voting in NH and another (their home) state...so potential employers etc will get the drift. Many are from what he calls “nests” of Organizing for America election workers. As NH was the last “battleground state” in 2012, it makes perfect sense they’d focus here....given too full effect of new voter ID law wasn’t on yet. Here:

I just watched her little spiel in front of the NH DemocRATs. She is a real piece of work. She blames the Republicans for the current miasma I call Lucifercare and is a mean spirited old crone!

Vermont had the Hank and Jerry’s guys who cranked out socialist ice cream. I never bought one dip. They’ve sold out and moved on to where the LBGTs roam.

Oh, yeah, Hirschberg of Stonyfield Yoghurt. They settled their big operation in NH to take advantage of the pro-business, low tax climate, but brought their Mass and VT politics with them, to help NH by ruining it. They donated and fund raised for the Three Weird Sisters of Winnepesakee.

It's going to be a great day when the public gets an understanding of the depth to which the Demoncrats lie.

All of them...every one...lie every day about everything.

Wickedness abounds in the Democrat party.
