CONCORD, NH – Marilinda Garcia, Republican candidate for New Hampshire’s Second Congressional District, released the following statement in response to a federal appeals court declaring that the majority of Obamacare’s subsidies are illegal.
“This court ruling further demonstrates the challenges and shortcomings in implementing a law that Democrats in Washington did not bother to read before voting for it,” said Garcia. “ In addition to using illegal subsidies for federal health insurance exchange enrollees, this costly and disastrous program has wreaked havoc on our national health care system. Obamacare has resulted in dropped coverage for thousands of hardworking New Hampshire residents, higher premiums and lost benefits, and almost half of New Hampshire’s hospitals being designated as ‘out of network.'"
"However, Washington politicians like Rep. Ann Kuster remain adamant in their support of Obamacare, and refuse to recognize its adverse effects on the people of New Hampshire. If I am elected to Congress, I will work to dismantle Obamacare, and push for common-sense and innovative health care reforms which utilize a bottom-up approach and put the power back in the hands of individuals and families."
