Stand up for your paycheck & for N.H.; stop Medicaid expansion

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,
NH Governor Maggie Hassan called a special session of the state Legislature. The purpose is to lay the ground-work to bankrupt the state of N.H. The reputation of "no income or sales tax", if she has her way, is dead.
Our representatives and senators have been very busy expanding Medicaid. This is part of the Obamacare train wreck that the Supreme Court said states could NOT be COERCED into!
Supposedly, the federal government will cover 100 percent of the cost of this expansion — with money printed as needed, to cover it. In three years, though, N.H. has to pick up 10 percent of the costs — and can WE print that same money to cover it? No — thus they intend to ram new taxes down our throats!
Can you trust the federal "you can keep your plan and your doctor" government to cover 90 percent of expanded Medicaid? Do you think they won't saying "sorry, we can only cover half (or less), now cough up the difference"? Can you afford to pay your bills, and maybe put up a little savings, if you keep even less in your pay?
Find out who your state senator and representatives are: http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/Senate/members/wml.aspx and contact them! Protect N.H. and your paycheck: please tell them TABLE this legislation until the train-wreck that is Obamacare is cleaned up! Call Governor Hassan: (603)271-2121 and tell her "Do Not Expand Medicaid!"
