Who is Jonathan Gruber and why this is important?

by Skip November 19, 2014

Right now at the national level, there are two things driving the Right blogosphere: Jonathan Gruber and Obama’s extra-Constitutional Amnesty granting.  Neither of which have we been commenting on – frankly, we’ve adopted the “screw DC – save NH” outlook and our posting with the elections here in NH has shown that.  But while NH […]

Ray Buckley, New Hampshire’s own outlet for the lies of Jonathan Gruber, has a problem.  He and his party have supported Obama’s endless stream of flip-flops and lies. They have run cover for the most scandal-ridden presidency in the modern era, perhaps ever.  They smeared opponents as Democrats doubled the national debt.  And they fought […]

Thanks to Shaheen and Shea-Porter – healthcare is now UNaffordable!

by Kimberly Morin October 28, 2014

I’m one of those people who has had health insurance for the majority of my life.  I’m an insurance-type person.  I’m one of those people who believe in being covered for the ‘what ifs’.  Heck I even have pet insurance for my bulldogs! Even on older vehicles I get the maximum coverage of insurance and I […]

Jeanne Shaheen – lies in her debate with Scott Brown over Medicare cuts due to Obamacare

by Skip October 23, 2014

Look, as any regular ‘Grok reader knows, we are not enamored with Scott Brown but as you just saw with my bumping of our Walt Havenstein posts on Expanded Medicaid, we don’t care WHO you are and WHICH Party you are in – lie to us (the electorate) and we (the ‘Grok) will call you on it.  […]

A question for Walt Havenstein – lying which time?

by Skip October 23, 2014

Update: Originally posted 8/19/14.  I won’t accept it from Dems so I CERTAINLY am not going to accept from a Republican.  Once again, Havenstein has flipped on this issue and he said it again during the NH1 / WBIN debate earlier this week.  “Veto” said to Rs, “fix it” to other audiences.  Trust? ***** He said it […]

by Skip October 23, 2014

Another pile of steaming, smelly stuff from Carol Shea-Porter in the NH1 / WBIN debate.  Yes, that same Carol Shea-Porter that stole GraniteGrok copyrighted material and used it in her campaign ads without permission.  But like all Progressives, laws are only for the little people (and she ain’t one of us, I guess) and considers […]

I don’t follow my twitter feed much at night but I happened on it this evening and the Twitterverse (NH Edition) is all over the debates.  Guinta and Shea-Porter, Shaheen and Brown, there’s even residue from Kuster and Garcia.  (Annie is mean!) I’m not a reporter nor a campaign operative so I can happily lean […]

Thumbnail image for Jeanne Shaheen’s Legacy – How She Ruined Health Care

Jeanne Shaheen’s political legacy will be built on making health care more expensive and more difficult to get.  What she did to New Hampshire was bad enough.  But then Democrats sent to her Washington so she could double down on failure.  Aaaannnnd She did. Patricia Wanderlich, a Chicago-area resident, experienced a life-threatening brain hemorrhage three […]

September is almost over but the Spite House War machine has been operating non-stop all year looking for ways to deceive voters about the failure (and unpopularity) of their healthcare overhaul. POLITICO Aware that state insurance rate hikes could give Republicans a chance to resurrect Obamacare as a political liability just weeks before the midterms, […]

US Chamber of Commerce ain’t showing love on Jeanne Shaheen for her Obamacare vote

by Skip September 20, 2014

And rightly so – she has done NOTHING except for taking choice away from us, the citizens, and moving that choice to the Ruling Class in Congress.  She started to show her “I’m smarter than you” when she got her SB711 passed and it immediately reduced our choices from over a couple of dozen providers […]

Watching FoxNews “Special Report” is a staple for me – while it seems that they do try to report the news fairly straight up (yes, sometimes shaded a bit or bit more to the Right – let’s be honest here, as do the others shade (or in the case of MSNBC, leap) to the Left), it […]

NH State Rep Leigh Webb (D): “The role of government is to legislate behavior“ And that is not the expression of one that values or cherishes Freedom; instead, it is THE  seedling of Totalitarianism.  Obamacare, ObamaZoning – different facets of the same evil – those that have the hubris of incomplete knowledge that feel they have the right […]

And by the way, Healthcare.gov is still a sad, screwed up mess…. This seems like an especially timely reminder, given yesterday’s news about how easily GAO investigators were able to buy insurance with faked credentials on Healthcare.gov. WECT in Wilmington, North Carolina reports that actual consumers have a much more difficult time in acquiring and paying […]

Jeb Bradley just lied to his constituents

by Skip July 25, 2014

Like all politicians, NH State Senator Jeb Bradley sends out eblasts all the time.  Now that it is campaign season, everyone should be expecting a whole lot more from all the candidates.  So, why the title?  I think I know – and I believe that Bradley makes it glaringly obvious (reformatted, emphasis mine) in this […]
