Record is mixed
Ann McLane Kuster
Says she has opposed measures to weaken the Dodd-Frank Wall Street regulatory bill and campaign-finance legislation when they were offered as stand-alone bills.
Opposed law, procedural vote
Says Scott Brown "voted to reward" companies "to ship jobs overseas."
By percentage, not raw number
Senate Majority PAC
"New Hampshire has lost more jobs to China than any other state."
Not all from Big Oil
"Big Oil gave Scott Brown $454,260."
More than $4K from oil companies, but not "big oil"
Says "Scott Brown’s carrying some big oil baggage" because he "collected over $400,000 in campaign contributions."
Deep roots, but he's no native
"I’m ninth generation from New Hampshire."
Loose claim about moose
"You've got more people wanting to go moose hunting in New Hampshire than want Obamacare."
Sweeping statement overreaches
New Hampshire Democratic Party
Preventive care coverage under the Affordable Care Act has already "helped Granite Staters save money and live healthier lives."
Oft repeated, still half true
New Hampshire is currently the only state in the nation that does not have a full-service veterans hospital or equivalent access.
Close on the numbers, wrong on the link
Says New Hampshire had the fourth-lowest unemployment rate in the country during Maggie Hassan’s time in the state Senate.
Right on increases, ignores all the cuts
Republican Governors Association
Gubernatorial candidate Maggie Hassan supported 33 tax and fee increases as Senate Majority Leader.
By one measure, it's close
Under Maggie Hassan's leadership, "we increased state spending in the middle of the great recession by 24 percent leading up to and following it."
Obscured by proceedure
Says Rep. Charlie Bass, R-NH voted to "raise his own pay" eight times
Missing context, misplaced blame
Says when Republicans took over the state legislature in 2010, New Hampshire’s tax rate for employers was 50th in the nation, and unemployment had more than doubled under Democrats.
Heard it before
Says when Mitt Romney was governor, Massachusetts was 47th in job creation
It's been bad, but not that bad
"There are 60,000 fewer jobs today in this state than we had in 2008."
Right on figures, wrong on finger-pointing
When Mitt Romney was governor, Massachusetts lost 40,000 manufacturing jobs, a rate twice the national average, and fell to 47th in job creation, fourth from the bottom.
