Last night the first Congressional District 1 debate was held between incumbent Representative Carol Shea-Porter and former Representative Frank Guinta. There weren’t any real surprises during the debate but there were quite a few lies told by Shea-Porter (this is no surprise either). It was also interesting the extremely far left wing Shea-Porter once again demonized her own constituents when she spoke negatively about the Tea Party.
This should not come as a shocker since Shea-Porter has been consistently demonizing her own constituents and refuses to hold town halls to speak with them. In her left wing hypocritical world, she used to demand town halls yet here she sits as the Representative of NH01 and refuses to hold them. One of first lies Shea-Porter told during the debate was that she meets with constituents. In reality, she hasn’t held a town hall since being re-elected in 2012.
One of Shea-Porter’s biggest lies of the night was blaming Anthem for cancelling health insurance policies for over 20,000 Granite Staters and claiming policies weren’t cancelled. One of the egregious things people discovered about Obamacare and those who voted for it is that every single Democrat was told that millions of people would have their health insurance policies cancelled.
Carol Shea-Porter knew thousands of people in New Hampshire would lose the health insurance plans they liked yet she voted for Obamacare regardless. During the debate she continually lied about this. Maybe this is the reason she refuses to give town halls? Neither she nor her partner-in-crime Jeanne Shaheen ever want to hear from their constituents that were hurt by their votes.
Another big lie of the night was Shea-Porter claiming she is a 2nd Amendment supporter. Her record proves otherwise. Shea-Porter hasn’t met a gun control bill she doesn’t like. As with all leftists such as herself, she will vote however her party tells her. Or however Gabby Giffords’ or Mom’s Demand decide she should vote. Get her voting record. Shea-Porter’s ratings are pathetic. That’s hardly someone who supports the 2nd Amendment. Guinta nailed her perfectly on this topic. He stated that it is the criminals that need to be focused on and not law-abiding citizens. A concept that proves Shea-Porter is for gun control and not reducing criminal violence.
There were many other white lies, fibs and damn lies by Shea-Porter but the 3 listed here were the big ones. She has been an absentee representative in New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District. She continually voted against the majority of her constituents rather than representing them. Shea-Porter as always been nothing but a rubber stamp vote for Obama and Democrats. Will Granite Staters finally learn their lesson? While the economy is still slugging along; thousands still look for work and thousands more about to lose their health insurance thanks to Obamacare. Will people finally give Shea-Porter what she deserves – the boot?
