WMUR has an article up about how Carol Shea-Porter always raises so much more campaign money, even though she doesn’t like that part of the gig. (Except for her first win, when she ran on vapors and benefitted from a Democrat wave election, she has not had to work hard to raise enough money.) Sorry.  […]

President Peace Prize, NH’s Jeanne Shaheen, even Congresspersons Carol Shea-Porter and Paul Hodes (Paul Who?), claimed that Afghanistan was the war we should be fighting.

Huff Po “As ‘Six for ’06′ did, it will have specific ideas that contrasts Republicans siding with special interests, and Democrats siding with the middle class,” said Rep. Steve Israel (N.Y.), head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC). This should be amusing, because I can tell you right now, Carol Shea-Porter already has a […]

Much like the narrative used before, during, and after passage of the bill that bears her name, Lilly Ledbetter Lied. Ms. Ledbetter has since repeatedly claimed that she only learned she was paid less than her male co-workers at the end of her career,4 and then belatedly filed an EEOC complaint. In her testimony before […]

Democrat promises are not much different from everyone elses lies.  Yes, ObamaCare is the biggest example, and there is Benghazi, among others.  But I’m more interested in this whole income (in)equality thing. Remember the Lilly Ledbetter act?  Carol Shea-Porter and Jeanne Shaheen promoted this legislation as the solution to workplace wage equality.  The DCCC even […]

March 23rd was ObamaCare’s 4th Birthday.   No fanfare?  No celebrations?  No parades?  No Birthday cake? Taking Skip’s lead, I checked the NH Federal delegation House and Senate Web Sites for Jeanne Shaheen, Carol Shea-Porter, and Ann Kuster.  There were no press releases, no statements, not even a tweet about the 4th anniversary of the glorious […]

by Skip March 24, 2014

Big Government: Rep. Julia Brownley (D-CA), a first-term representative whose district includes parts of Ventura County, Simi Valley and the San Fernando Valley, has apparently removed her support for Obamacare from her campaign website.

It’s not what you think.  Well, maybe it is. c/o John Hinderaker at Powerline, on Sheila Jackson Lee.  This is classic Lee: Maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority — the Republicans, my chairman and others — for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion […]

This will be the gift that will keep on giving – the Kiss of Death, that is.  To the Republicans, that is.  They just didn’t realize it, all those Smart People in the NH State Senate with Rs after their names that voted to implement Obamacare’s Medicaid Expansion (even though they tried to call it […]

Carol-Ann Shea-Kuster Was Against It Before “She” Was For It

by Steve MacDonald March 6, 2014

Carol SEIU-Porter and Ann “Hide your Camera” Kuster are like tiny, little, interchangeable, cogs in the progressive DC machinery.  So it should be no surprise that with re-election coming up they are suddenly in favor of delaying the implementation of an important piece of “job creating” legislation that hard-working American families (children, seniors, single moms, […]

There is an article up at Michael Graham.com that talks about the concern among Democrat strategists that they can’t win the House and they could lose the Senate. They are.. .”..so dispirited about any chance of picking up the US House–that they’re writing off the latter and shoving all their chips (and cash) on the […]

US Congresswoman Annie Kuster – the gal version of Phil Hare (D-Il)?

by Skip December 11, 2013

Ah yes, that IS the comparison that is now being made: Kuster = Hare: (Hat tip, Independent Journal Review.) Kuster may not realize it yet, but she’s just become the Phil Hare of this cycle. Rep. Phil Hare, an Illinois Democrat, dismissed objections to Obamacare back in 2010 by quipping, “I don’t worry about the […]

Once again, the push to make companies simply another part of Progressive Government

by Skip December 2, 2013

As I said here, Obamacare is the Progressive capstone to force otherwise Free people to take care of others – not out of kindness but out of fear.  Progressives, being the incremental socialists they are, previously have pretty much co-opted what used to be genuinely charitable organizations (now called ‘social services organizations who pretty much  […]

RAAAACISTS: Carol Shea-Porter and Jeanne Shaheen. They hate little kids & puppies too

After all, led by those that were once vociferously FOR Obamacare (and if not vociferous, certainly smarmy Schoolmarmish in the case of one of them), those Democrat women are now AGAINST it (funny, neither of look or sound like “Lurch” Kerry even after he’s plumped up his facial features).  And in opposing Obamacare for the […]

I AM one of the 93 million employer insured employees that Obamacare has come for now that it has all but killed off the private insurance marketplace – something that absolutely delights folks like NH Congressmen Annie Custer, Carol Shea-Porter, and NH’s US Senator Jeanne Shaheen.  They want as little capitalism left as possible: Shaheen […]
