Release: "Extra Time" and "What to Cut"
(October 23, 2014) - Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire is launching a heavy, statewide, online advertisement buy, focusing on Senator Jeanne Shaheen and the negative effects of Obamacare's employer mandate.
Last year, the Obama Administration announced it would delay the employer mandate portion of Obamacare until 2015. That decision was made shortly after Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire released its first television spot on Jeanne Shaheen titled, "What to Cut," back in June of 2013.
As we approach 2015, the Obama Administration still plans to move forward with enacting the mandate, and Shaheen has been silent on the issue. She has not asked for the delay to be extended or for a full repeal of the employer mandate.
Derek Dufresne, Spokesman for Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, released the following statement:
"While the Obama Administration delayed the employer mandate until 2015, we are now quickly approaching the time when that delay will expire and new action is required to stop the law's disastrous effects. President Obama proved that even he recognized the negative impact the employer mandate would have on Americans by delaying it last year. Remarkably though, Senator Jeanne Shaheen has been silent on how she would address the fact that once the delay expires, many small businesses will still be forced to cut their employees' workdays to avoid new penalties and fees. New Hampshire families simply cannot afford to work less, and many will have to look for additional work, or go without. It is time for our state's senior senator to listen to her constituents, recognize her mistake in originally supporting the employer mandate, and finally work towards fully repealing it immediately."
