Health Insurance Companies And ObamaCare Cost Increases
One of the promised benefits of ObamaCare was that it would “bend the healthcare cost curve down.” Few of us believed that would be the case. It’s proving to be another ObamaLie.

New Hampshire, Vermont: look, all those states look alike to Elizabeth Warren.

The NRSC will be throwing money into New Hampshire and elsewhere after all.

Meet Robin Partello. And who is she? Well, she was someone who was featured as a Republican offering praise for Annie Kuster in a recent campaign ad for New Hampshire’s Second District.

NH Democrat Governor Hassan Has Not Signed Speech Killing Bill. Why?
Members of the New Hampshire State “Republican Majority Senate,” sponsored and passed NH SB120, a bill that modified finance rules for money related to political speech. Money used to engage in political speech must be regulated, we are told by incumbent Republicans, but this is not a violation of our first amendment rights because money isn’t speech. We’ve taken to calling it the Incumbent protection | Read More »

Reuters can’t quite bear to say that Obamacare is a bear for New Hampshire Democrats.
This Reuters article is fascinating reading, not least because it’s a hoot.
