Holding our elected officials accountable

Letter to the Editor

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen has trotted out many shiny objects (the Memorial Bridge, widening I-93) in TV ads to divert voter attention away from the Affordable Care Act. She doesn’t want to be held accountable for her failed legislation and the lie she told: “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.”

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen has trotted out many shiny objects (the Memorial Bridge, widening I-93) in TV ads to divert voter attention away from the Affordable Care Act. She doesn’t want to be held accountable for her failed legislation and the lie she told: “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.”

Rep. Carol Shea-Porter also supports the failed Obamacare law.

Now Sen. Shaheen joins President Obama, Rep. Shea-Porter and Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in their rebuke of the Supreme Court decision in the Hobby Lobby case. Clinton said, “It’s very troubling that a sales clerk at Hobby Lobby who needs contraception, which is pretty expensive, is not going to get that service through her employer’s health care plan because her employer doesn’t think she should be using contraception.” This is not true, Hobby Lobby provides 16 contraceptives.

It should be apparent, based on Obamacare, that we must replace Sen. Shaheen and Rep. Shea-Porter. If Hillary Clinton cannot understand Hobby Lobby, she certainly cannot be president. President Obama’s failed policies clearly demonstrate his incompetence. But we knew in 2008 that he was not qualified. We must elect people who have a track record of success.
