Though it’s unlikely to make the trophy case, Senator Jeanne Shaheen’s office is still being given a trophy and shoutout as one of the Democrats who went along with President Obama’s ‘Lie of the Year’ tagline – “if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. Period.”
That comes compliments of the Republican National Committee, which this morning issued a memo tying vulnerable Senate Democrats to the line, now infamous in the wake of Obamacare’s disastrous rollout.
Shaheen, up for re-election next year, makes the list with the line “everyone will have the freedom to keep their healthcare plan if they like it” lifted from an October 2009 floor speech.
Over five million Americans, thousands of whom live in the Granite State, have since seen their insurance canned.
Accompanying ‘Lie of the Year’ trophies are reportedly being delivered today, too.
