Concord, NH - In an editorial today, the Portsmouth Herald profiled a local woman who will be forced to forgo her health care as a result of the House and Senate Republicans' tax increase on hospitals. The Republican state budget's 250 million dollar tax increase has killed hundreds of New Hampshire jobs and is sending the price of health care for countless families and small businesses skyrocketing.
The Herald wrote, "Republicans made some questionable decisions this session, including lowering the cigarette tax, which may cost up to $30 million in state revenue over the next two years. But it is the poorly vetted decision to pull up to $250 million from the state's largest hospitals that stands out the most."
