Shea-Porter for Congress

During the 2011-2012 Session of Congress, Representative Frank Guinta voted “No” each time on the Constitutional Amendment proposal to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in “Citizen’s United.” He believes corporations are people. He voted for the bill (H.R. 5) that would limit the ability of malpractice victims to hold the medical industry liable for harm.

Rep. Guinta voted “Yes” on a bill (H.R. 4480) to delay the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from completing three air pollution rules; cede more federal lands to fossil fuel companies; decrease wildlife habitats; and fast track drilling permits. He voted for a bill (H.R. 4348) to stop the EPA’s attempt to regulate coal ash, which is hazardous waste.

Rep. Guinta does not represent me and my values in Congress. Carol Shea-Porter will represent N.H. interests and values in the House of Representatives. She can be trusted to make good moral decisions, and will not be bought by corporate lobbyists. She is opposed to the Republican voucher-care privatization legislation which can hurt seniors. She will preserve Social Security.

During Carol Shea-Porter’s four years in Congress, she voted for the GI Bill of Rights, increased Pell grants for students, and got the VA to give NH Veterans better access to in-state medical care. She worked for clean air, water and energy, and for safe food.

As our Representative, she brought construction jobs to the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, and helped to secure funding for the Portsmouth Memorial Bridge. She supported investment in infrastructure. She voted to stop sending jobs overseas, and voted to save the auto industry. She was against the Wall Street bailout.

She believes government must not interfere with a person’s medical decisions.

Carol Shea-Porter will be our hard-working and honest NH Representative. Please consider voting for her and return her to Congress.
