Former Congresswoman Shea-Porter Continues to Hide from Her Record, This Time Trying to Censor Local Media

Former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter is at it again; continuing her record of trying to hide from Granite State voters. This time she is trying to censor a local cable access television show.

(Manchester – August 24, 2012) Former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter is at it again; continuing her record of trying to hide from Granite State voters.  This time she is trying to censor a local cable access television show.

This morning’s New Hampshire Union Leader covered a story about a Bedford community access television producer being pressured by the former Congresswoman to not air an interview taped earlier this week, “a move the host calls censorship.” You can read the full article, here: http://www.unionleader.com/article/20120824/NEWS06/708249974 or read BCTV host/producer Kathy Benuck's take by

Derek Dufresne, Spokesman, Guinta for Congress, release the following statement:

“Former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter hasn’t had a single Town Hall meeting, rarely releases a public schedule, and has a website that offers no opportunity for Granite Staters to see where she stands on the most important issues facing our country. Despite the New Hampshire tradition of being open and accessible, it’s no surprise the former Congresswoman is trying to hide from her partisan Washington record once again.”

Atlant. If socialized medicine is so good why do so many people with socialized medicine from other countries come here for their healthcare? Because they have such a long wait to see a doctor. Doctors don't want to be told how much they can make, or the government will tell patients what operations they can or can't have. I know a doctor who came to this country from Canada to escape that system. Old people will be judged by ''quality life years left''. The government wants to run your healthcare and they can't even run the post office at a profit. Keep living in your little fantasy world and drinking obama's Kool-aid.

That occurs far less than you might think (and rich people will always find ways to pay to "jump lines" when it suits their needs). In fact, it probably occurs less-often these days than Americans leaving the country to have medical and dental procedures performed in foreign climes because that's where they can afford to have them done. Here's a story about a woman whose insurance company's death panel (well, in her case permanent disability panel) wouldn't pay for her hip replacement because they deemed her to have a "pre-existing condition". So she went to India to have the hip replacement done. http://abcnews.go.com/Nightline/story?id=2587670&page=1#.UD-toyqF9jw It's *EXACTLY* this sort of thing that will be minimized by the ACA ("Obamacare").

Here's a story about Americans heading into Mexico for *DENTAL CARE*: http://abcnews.go.com/Nightline/story?id=2587670&page=1#.UD-toyqF9jw Imagine! Having to be forced to travel internationally to get your teeth fixed! But that's the sort of America Republicans are arguing in favor of!
