Why We 🥰 Jeanne Shaheen!
U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen is the only woman in American history to be elected Governor and U.S. Senator, with a record of breaking partisan gridlock to make a difference for the people of New Hampshire Jeanne is a fierce advocate for women’s rights, including the rights of women in the military. The Shaheen Amendment, now law, provides abortion coverage to servicewomen who were victims of rape. Jeanne was also key to the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), and an outspoken leader in the fight to stop sexual assault in the military. She is a strong supporter of equal pay for equal work, voting for the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and cosponsoring the Paycheck Fairness Act. Jeanne is a tireless fighter for New Hampshire. She secured the funding to open the Berlin prison, creating jobs and opportunity for the North Country. Working with Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, she obtained the funds for the new Memorial Bridge in Portsmouth. Jeanne took on the Senate Majority Leader when he excluded New Hampshire workers in his proposal to extend unemployment benefits and she stood up to President Obama when he requested another round of base closures that would put the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard and the jobs it supports at major risk. Jeanne also fought against the President and Democratic leadership on a measure that would force New Hampshire small businesses to collect other states’ sales taxes.
