Shaheen works across the aisle for NH

Letter to the Editor

A recent letter to the editor falsely characterized Sen. Jeanne Shaheen as someone who does not serve the people of New Hampshire because of party politics. Clearly this writer doesn’t follow the news – just two weeks ago Sen. Shaheen and Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte were given high praise for coming together in bipartisan fashion. Together, they got language included in a bill that will now allow veterans to access private health care services if they live more then 20 miles away from a full-service VA hospital. New Hampshire is one of two states that does not have a full-service VA. Sen. Shaheen took the appropriate steps, working across party lines to do right by New Hampshire. Senator Shaheen also voted against the implementation of an Internet sales tax, something many in the Democratic party wanted. She recognized this tax would be bad for New Hampshire business. Jeanne Shaheen is bipartisan senator who will work with Republicans, Democrats and independents to find solutions that improve the Granite State.
