CONCORD, New Hampshire — Conservative columnist Ann Coulter and Boston-area radio host Howie Carr on Thursday slammed New Hampshire’s incumbent Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) for killing jobs with her support for amnesty.
“How many jobs do you think are going to be lost in New Hampshire?” Carr asked Coulter. “She backed the Gang of Eight bill. She still defends the Gang of Eight bill. That bill itself doubles the amount of guest workers, triples the amount of green cards. Let’s not even talk about the [11 million illegal immigrants]. How many jobs is that going to cost New Hampshire and at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard?”
Coulter responded that the surge of immigration that would happen–both legal and illegal–because of the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill, if it were ever enacted into policy, would take tons of jobs away from New Hampshire’s citizens. An expected 34 million more people–in addition to the 11 million or more illegal aliens who would be authorized to work–would be admitted into the country, she said.
“The 34 million are sure going to take a lot of jobs and cost a lot of tax money, to support them through the schools, the roads, the food stamps. It’s going to be too late,” Coulter said. “You know that feeling you have, New Hampshirites and Howie Carr listeners, that, ‘you know, I wish I had voted for Romney.’ You’re going to have that tenfold if you vote for Jeanne Shaheen again.”
Coulter was on the program to discuss her new column, “Jeanne Shaheen’s Ebola Opportunities Team,” which rips the New Hampshire Democrat over and over.
Carr noted that New Hampshire citizens are losing their healthcare because of Obamacare and will lose their jobs if Shaheen’s and Obama’s immigration plans succeed.
“You’re already going to lose your healthcare under Obamacare because of Jeanne Shaheen, and she lied through her teeth about the effects of Obamacare as you point out in your column today ‘Jeanne Shaheen’s Ebola Opportunities Team.’ She lied through her teeth,” Carr said.
“Those were deliberate and necessary lies because there’s no way Obamacare would have passed if Democrats had admitted there’s no effing way you’re keeping your insurance,” Coulter responded.
