NHDP Statement on Supreme Court's Decision Upholding Access to Affordable Health Insurance

Concord, N.H. - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court's decision upholding access to affordable health insurance in King v. Burwell:

“Today, the Supreme Court decided in favor of our state and our nation, ensuring that more than 30,000 Granite Staters who receive tax credits to purchase health coverage will continue to have access to good, affordable health care."

“While we celebrate the fact that 30,000 Granite Staters will remain covered, let's not forget that the Republican Party still desperately wants to repeal health coverage from those hard-working Granite Staters and more. Not to mention that Republicans in Concord refuse to continue the state's bipartisan Medicaid expansion, placing coverage for tens of thousands of Granite Staters at risk and creating uncertainty in the health insurance marketplace." 

"Kelly Ayotte, Frank Guinta, State House Republicans, and the entire Republican presidential field must stop trying to repeal health coverage from millions of Americans and instead work towards bipartisan solutions that will expand middle class opportunity and strengthen our economy."
