Forrester Calls on Shaheen, Hassan, Kuster, & Shea-Porter to Withhold their Salaries

For Immediate Release: 1/22/2018
Contact: Patrick Hynes, (202) 321-5310

CONCORD – NH GOP Chair Jeanie Forrester released the following statement regarding our Federal Delegation failing to avert a government shutdown:

“Senator Shaheen, Senator Hassan, Congresswoman Kuster, and Congresswoman Shea-Porter voted in lock-step with the Democrats, putting party politics over the interests of Granite Staters. As a result of their reckless and self-serving vote, they have jeopardized the well-being of 14,727 New Hampshire children who rely on the Children’s Health Insurance Program and put at risk our veterans and active military pay and benefits.”

“And, while Shaheen, Hassan, Kuster, and Shea-Porter will still be bringing home a paycheck, the 7,600 federal employees in New Hampshire are going unpaid for the foreseeable future. Sadly, our delegation is once again out of touch and out of line and they should forgo their salary until the end of the shutdown.”
