NHDP - THROWBACK THURSDAY: House Finance Chair Kurk Said Repealing Health Care Expansion Would Not Be “A Humane or Viable Option”

Concord, N.H. – Republicans on the House Finance Committee, led by Chair Neal Kurk, voted this week to eliminate health insurance for more than 37,000 and counting working Granite Staters receiving coverage through New Hampshire’s bipartisan health care expansion plan.
However, back in July 2013, Kurk admitted that, once implemented, repealing the state’s bipartisan health care expansion plan would not be a “humane or viable option.”
“Neal Kurk was spot on two years ago when he said that repealing health coverage from tens of thousands of Granite Staters is not a ‘humane or viable option.’ It’s time for Kurk and House Republicans to stop capitulating to Bill O’Brien and do what’s right for our people, businesses, and economy by continuing New Hampshire's bipartisan health care expansion plan,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley.
