Maggie Hassan’s “Bipartisan Health Care Solutions” Are Neither Bipartisan Nor Solutions

New Hampshire’s drive-by Senator Maggie Hassan (whose margin of victory was less than the number allowed to vote without ID) is out with an op-ed on how to “solve” healthcare:

Hassan’s op-ed comes on the heels of the Senate GOP’s failure to pass “skinny repeal” of Obamacare and the news that health insurers in New Hampshire have requested rate hikes of, in some cases, more than 40 percent for 2018.  Hassan’s “solutions,” however, are neither truly bipartisan nor really solutions.  Rather, they would move us further toward single-payer –that is, government-controlled and government-rationed– healthcare.

How Maggie Hassan Politicized Opiates/Opioids

On November 3, 2015, Governor Hassan called for a special session of the legislature to, in her words, “to take up comprehensive substance abuse legislation.

Based on the chart below, which shows deaths from opiates spiking in New Hampshire more than a year earlier, one can fairly ask of Hassan: “what the hell took you so long”?

Another Democrat Super-PAC Joins Attack on GOP for not Confirming Hassan Judicial Nominee

Yesterday I posted about New Hampshire Public Radio’s reporting on the Executive Council’s refusal to confirm one of six nominees Governor and-United-States-Senate-candidiate Maggie Hassan to the New Hampshire Superior Court:

What seems to be NHPR’s real concern is that the Washington Free Beacon, a conservative investigating reporting website, influenced the vote by reporting that the nominee had represented child rapists: Continue reading

Democrat Super-PAC Attacks GOP for Not Confirming Hassan Judicial Nominee

New Hampshire Public Radio is reporting that the New Hampshire’s “Legal Community” is “concerned” about the Executive Council rejecting one of Governor Hassan’s recent nominees to the Superior Court.

The “legal community” mentioned in the article consists of the Chief of the Manchester Police and the President of the Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.  That’s akin to CNN reporting, based on interviewing only nine people in Detroit, that Ben Carson’s claims in Gifted Hands were unable to be verified.

What seems to be NHPR’s real concern is that the Washington Free Beacon, a conservative investigating reporting website, influenced the vote by reporting that the nominee had represented child rapists: Continue reading
