Don't expand Medicaid; every program ends up costing much more

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

Governor Maggie Hassan has called for a special session of the N.H. Legislature on November 21, to consider expanding Medicaid in N.H. The federal government is offering free money now so they will be able to control us in the future. Once we get hooked on federal government money they will stop funding it and N.H. citizens will be left holding the bill. We will then be forced to raise property taxes or began a sales tax or N.H. income tax to pay for the expansion.

Look at the government track record concerning food stamps. More people are on food stamps than ever before resulting in a class dependent on the government. Every government program ends up costing much more than predicted. Obamacare was supposed to save people $1,500 a year on health insurance, now they're predicting an increase of $2,900 for most families each year. Please tell Governor Maggie Hassan and our N.H. Legislature that we cannot afford to expand Medicaid in N.H. Do this right away because they may vote on this next Thursday.
