CRITICAL OF CAROL. The conservative advocacy group Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire this week will release a web video of Shea-Porter saying on WMUR in 2010, "It's our job to say, if you have insurance, and your employer covers you, it'snot going to change."
That is in fact the case at least for another year, with the delay in the employer mandate.
But the "Citizens" group says the comment from Shea-Porter specifying "employer" coverage, shows either she didn't understand the bill and her comments in 2010 were meant to include both employer and individual plans, or she knowingly said the word "employer" because she actually knew that millions of individual plans would get canceled once the law was implemented.
We asked Shea-Porter's office for a comment on the group's charge Friday, but did not receive one.
