Statement by Corky Messner on Jeanne Shaheen’s Democratic Convention Speech
In N.H., Shaheen Says “Protect The ACA,” But In D.C. She Follows Socialist Sanders

Republican Senate candidate Corky Messner made the following statement reacting to Jeanne Shaheen’s Democratic State Convention speech in which she pledged to “fight to protect the Affordable Care Act”:

“Yesterday, Jeanne Shaheen told New Hampshire she would “fight to protect the ACA.” But just two years ago, Shaheen co-sponsored socialist Bernie Sanders’ plan to scrap the ACA and replace it with a European-style single-payer system. Her election year transformation is just another example of Shaheen saying one thing in New Hampshire while doing another in D.C.”
