Letter: Seeing through Ayotte

Last modified: 9/30/2015 9:23:03 AM
Fellow Granite Staters, please do not be fooled by Sen. Kelly Ayotte’s recent tactics with this latest GOP effort to defund Planned Parenthood and possibly shut down the government.

Make no mistake. A look at Ayotte’s record opens a window that shows a much different image than the one she’s trying to create for herself now that her re-election is fast approaching. Facts don’t change, and once you get beyond her recent sleight of hand, the simple facts are that Ayotte has repeatedly voted to shut down the government and defund Planned Parenthood. The reason for her most recent stunt of a vote is to fool the masses and achieve her goal, which is to get re-elected – something that she’s clearly worried about.

This is pure politics and nothing else. The Republican Party’s tactics to defund this family planning and women’s health organization shouldn’t be unfamiliar to any Granite Staters. They’re the same as they have always been, and the same as they were when Ayotte first voted to shut down government in 2013. The Republican Party is becoming more and more extreme (just look at the resignation of John Boehner).

We need a senator who will always be responsible, not just when they’re up for re-election. So please, don’t forget what Ayotte’s true record is, because if she gets re-elected, that’s exactly what we’ll be seeing again from her.
