Thank you Sen. Kelly Ayotte for continuing to try to delay Obamacare's 'individual mandate'

Posted on
Last week, Sen. Kelly Ayotte hosted multiple public Town Hall meetings around the Granite State. At one of her meetings in the town of Brentwood, Sen. Ayotte poignantly asked why President Obama would support delaying Obamacare for businesses, but not for individuals, especially considering all of the recent problems seen in the early implementation of Obamacare. We at Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire couldn't agree more.
 
In contrast, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01) and Rep. Annie Kuster (NH-02), all whom have hidden from Granite Staters by refusing to host public Town Hall meetings, continue to support Obamacare's 'individual mandate.' On Wednesday, when asked by Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, Sen. Shaheen did leave the door open to supporting a delay of Obamacare's 'individual mandate,' however all after releasing our video, her office told the Union Leader that she would oppose efforts to delay it. 
 
While Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire joins with Sen. Kelly Ayotte in hoping to fully repeal Obamacare, we would like to thank her for continuing to be the single voice among Granite State federally elected officials to request a delay in the program's 'individual mandate.' We are also continuing to ask Sen. Shaheen, Rep. Shea-Porter and Rep. Kuster to join Sen. Ayotte in her efforts.    
 
Derek Dufresne, Spokesman for Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, released the following statement:
 
"Delaying Obamacare's enrollment period is just a political ploy to protect one's own career. Delaying the 'individual mandate' would have real results in protecting Granite Staters from the costly uncertainty we are already seeing during the disastrous implementation of Obamcare in recent weeks.  
 
"As New Hampshire's only federally elected official who has asked for a delay of Obamacare's 'individual mandate,' Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire thanks Sen. Ayotte for trying to protect our state from the harmful effects of the failing legislation. In contrast, we call on Sen. Shaheen, Rep. Shea-Porter and Rep. Kuster to stop playing political games and join Sen. Ayotte in her efforts."

Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire is asking Granite Staters to call Sen. Ayotte and thank her for her efforts to delay Obamacare's 'individual mandate' and tell Sen. Shaheen, Rep. Shea-Porter and Rep. Kuster to do the same.
