Strengthen the Healthcare System
- New Hampshire has come a long way on healthcare since the Affordable Care Act went into effect in 2010.
- Our legislature worked in a bi-partisan way to figure out a plan that would help insure an additional 50,000 New Hampshirites.
Although the law is still in place, the recent federal elimination of the law’s mandate and elimination of funds to help keep costs down, is estimated to increase New Hampshire premiums as much as 60%.
The number of people likely to lose insurance is 45,000. So we have another example of one-step-forward, two-steps-back because of partisan politics.
We pay the price. Its easy to trash the other guy’s plan, but breaking a system with no plan to replace it is irresponsible.
Gutting a working program in order to prop up a false narrative politicians sold to their base, is craven, harmful and incredibly costly; perhaps the highest cost is to the health & security of the working families who get hit with the bills.
