NH Dem. House & Senate leaders call on Sununu admin., Republican legislature, to protect Granite Staters from Trump ACA sabotage (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=177380b2f9&e=a40ec310b1)

… “President Trump’s decision to end cost-sharing reduction payments will dramatically hurt New Hampshire families’ ability to afford and access the health insurance they need. The Trump administration’s varied attempts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act and its protections are shameful and it is abundantly clear that this effort is an attempt to settle a political score rather than act in the best interest of the American people . . . Today, we are calling on Governor Sununu and New Hampshire’s Republican legislative leaders to pass a reinsurance program to provide as much relief as possible to Granite Staters who will see premiums go up an average of 20% next year as a result of President Trump’s decision to cancel CSR payments. We are also calling on New Hampshire’s Attorney General Gordon MacDonald to join Attorneys General across the country who are promising to sue the Trump administration to protect cost-sharing reductions. We will work with anyone, anywhere to make sure Granite Staters continue to see the protections and guarantees they have received under the Affordable Care Act and fight back against President Trump’s destructive sabotage.” … – Senate Democratic Leader Jeff Woodburn (D-Whitefield), Senate Deputy Democratic Leader Donna Soucy (D-Manchester), House Democratic Leader Steve Shurtleff (D-Penacook) and House Deputy Democratic Leader Cindy Rosenwald (D-Nashua)

============================================================ Copyright © 2017 NHDP Grassroots Chair, All rights reserved. As we enter the 2018 legislative session, we will need all hands-on-deck to push back on the Republican leadership who have already made it clear that they will focus on restricting voting access, pushing through corporate tax cuts and other priorities that the people of New Hampshire do not want. My job over the next year as the NHDP Grassroots Chair will be to keep local Democrats informed and engaged during the 2018 legislative session, and I need your help!
