"New Hampshire's Obamacare Trio is Hiding"
By: Derek Dufresne
 
Zero. Zilch. Nada. No matter how you say it, that's the number of public Town Hall meetings Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01) and Rep. Anne McLane-Kuster (NH-02) have hosted on ObamaCare since being sworn into office in January. It has even been longer than that since Senator Jeanne Shaheen hosted a public forum for Granite Staters to discuss the most important topic of the day.

When our U.S. Senators and Representatives in Congress are at home in their districts during the 'August Recess,' it is their responsibility to hold public town hall meetings.  At these meetings, their constituents should be able to address every issue affecting them and their families, especially the issue of Obamacare, which will have dramatic effects on all Americans.

‘Summertime and the livin’ is easy,” wrote the novelist DuBose Heyward in the lyrics to a famous George Gershwin song.

He could have served in Congress, where members take the entire month of August off whether they’ve accomplished anything meaningful or not. They call it the “August recess.”

The “livin’ is easy” part may be interrupted – though we hope not rudely – next week when the three Democratic members of the state’s congressional delegation face protests from two conservative groups that plan to picket the offices of Rep. Ann Kuster, Rep. Carol Shea-Porter and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen.

Cornerstone Action and Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire want the trio to hold town hall-style meetings where they have to field tough questions about their support of President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act. Critics of the law say the three are avoiding their constituents.
