Two pieces of news provide a flicker of hope amid the doom and gloom.
CONCORD, N.H., Nov. 19 -- The New Hampshire Republican Party issued the following news:
New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn responded today to Governor Hassan's speech on Medicaid expansion in Lebanon:
"For the third consecutive day, Governor Hassan is on the road campaigning for ObamaCare instead of sitting down with Republicans in Concord to work on a bipartisan health care agreement. The governor continues to demonstrate that she isn't interested in working across the aisle because of her rigid adherence to President Obama's liberal ideology and his failed health care agenda.
"Republicans have offered a sensible plan that will protect taxpayers and help needy families get access to high quality insurance instead of dumping them into a struggling entitlement program. It's obvious that Governor Hassan has no intention of working on a bipartisan solution and no idea how to act like the kind of leader that Granite Staters expect in the corner office."
Governor Hassan: "The bad deal senate republicans are offering is worse than no deal all." (NHPR, 11/16/13)
