NHDP - NH Senate Republicans Lurch to the Far Right of Tea Party Governor Jan Brewer

Concord – Yesterday, radically conservative Tea Party Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona signed Medicaid Expansion into law after the state’s Republican majority legislature voted for expansion.  Sadly, in New Hampshire Senate Republicans are blocking expansion and refusing to acknowledge the improved health and economic security it would being for 58,000 Granite State workers and taxpayers.
“Even radical Tea Party hero Arizona Governor Jan Brewer could put her ideology aside and work to expand Medicaid to improve insurance coverage and strengthen economic security for working families,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Harrell Kirstein.  “If New Hampshire Senate Republicans lurch any further to the right, they will slide right off the eastern seaboard and into the Atlantic Ocean.”
