Jeb Bradley For NH Senate - A New Hampshire Plan, Not a Washington Plan 

Dear Friends,

As you might know, today began a two week special legislative session to address the issue of health care for low-income New Hampshire residents.  If you have paid attention to the State House lately, you know this a policy question that has consumed much of our time this year, and rightfully so.

The question of Medicaid expansion was among the most contentious issues discussed during this year’s budget negotiations.  Back in May, Senate Republicans removed the Medicaid provisions from the budget because we knew that passing them could have resulted in uncontrolled spending and lead the state to an income tax. 

With that provision removed, Senate Republicans led the way in passing a balanced budget with no new taxes, no new fees, and limited spending.  We are proud that our budget lived up to our conservative principles and passed both bodies of the legislature on a nearly unanimous vote.

As we did earlier this year, we continue to believe that growing the Medicaid entitlement and accepting a Washington one-size fits all plan, will break our budget and lead to a broad based tax.  For that reason, Senate Republicans will continue to oppose Medicaid Expansion during the special session.

Instead, as leaders, we believe it is the responsibility of Senate Republicans to offer a viable plan for how we can work through the private market to attain coverage for low-income residents who struggle to afford health insurance coverage.  

To meet that responsibility, we were proud today to introduce legislation that will increase access to private insurance coverage for upwards of 58,000 low-income New Hampshire residents.  By maximizing available federal dollars, we believe we can provide better coverage for these citizens than would be offered under Medicaid and can do so through a program design that will provide rock solid protections for New Hampshire taxpayers.

Moreover, unlike Medicaid Expansion, our private option plan will not grow government.

Unlike Medicaid Expansion, our private option plan will not leave taxpayers on the hook for millions of dollars in new costs over the next ten years.

 And unlike Medicaid Expansion, our private option plan will offer a hand-up and a path towards personal growth, as opposed to a hand-out and an extension of the entitlement culture.

          We are pleased that the state’s largest newspaper, the New Hampshire Union Leader, has recognized our proposal because of the health care reforms it includes (link the italics portion to here: http://www.unionleader.com/article/20131107/OPINION01/131109503).  Through the public hearing process and at multiple public events Republican Senators will be holding across the state over the next few weeks, we hope you will take the opportunity to learn more about our plan.  We truly believe that legislation like what we introduced today – a New Hampshire plan, not a Washington plan – could be the model for health care reform, and we are excited that once again New Hampshire and the Republican Party will be leading the way.

Please join me in talking to your family, friends and colleagues about the merits of this plan, and we look forward to working with all of you to enact this proposal into law later this month.

 

Sincerely,

 

       Chuck Morse                                              Jeb Bradley


President, NH Senate                           Majority Leader, NH Senate

NHDP - Flashback: Bradley Casts New England's Lone Yes Vote Banning Marriage Equality

Concord - In case you missed it, or have forgotten, as a member of Congress Jeb Bradley was the only Representative from New England to vote for a constitutional ban on marriage equality.  "However, because court rulings have threatened the legitimacy of DOMA by allowing same-sex marriages, I believe we should protect traditional marriage by ensuring that marriage is defined as between one man and one woman," said Bradley defending his discriminatory vote.

"As a member of  Congress Jeb Bradley represented the far right instead of New Hampshire's traditional values of fairness and equality.  Nearly seven years later and after being rejected by New Hampshire voters twice, nothing has changed.  Now a state Senator Bradley is still representing the far right wing and still opposing equality for thousands of loving New Hampshire families," said New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Harrell Kirstein. 

In Concord, Bradley voted against New Hampshire's historic marriage equality law, continuing to oppose equal rights for Granite State LGBT families. [HB436 Roll Call]  Numerous public opinion polls show that the majority of Granite Staters and Americans support marriage equality. [UNH Survey Center; Washington Post, 3/2013]

"Jeb Bradley is so far to the right he is out of touch not just with the majority of New Hampshire voters, but even with many members of his own party nationally who now support marriage equality for all," added Kirstein.

 
Associated Press: Bradley Casts New England's Lone Yes Vote on Gay Marriage Measure
July 19, 2006
LENGTH: 171 words
DATELINE: WASHINGTON 
Republican U.S. Rep. Jeb Bradley of New Hampshire was the only New Englander to vote for a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage Tuesday.

The House rejected the proposed amendment by a vote of 236-187 with one member voting "present," 47 short of the two-thirds majority needed to advance the proposal.

Rep. Charles Bass, R-N.H., voted against the measure, as did the House members from Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maine and Vermont.

Bradley echoed other supporters who argued that Congress must step in to stop judges who have ruled in favor of gay marriages.

"I support the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), signed into law by President Clinton in 1996, which was intended to ensure that same-sex marriages would not be recognized under federal law," Bradley said in a statement.

"However, because court rulings have threatened the legitimacy of DOMA by allowing same-sex marriages, I believe we should protect traditional marriage by ensuring that marriage is defined as between one man and one woman," he said.

Bradley For NH Senate - Final sprint to the finish

October 30, 2012
 
Dear Friends,
 
I hope you have gotten through the storm safely. Our thoughts and prayers go to those who have been impacted and to those helping their fellow Americans through this terrible tragedy.
 
We are in the final sprint to the finish line of the Presidential Race and your help is still necessary.
 
Governor Romney has proven in the campaign and the three debates that he has the knowledge, competence, backbone and trustworthiness to be America’s President. He will turn the economy around, get people back to work, reduce the deficit, and lift the crushing burden on the middle class of high energy, healthcare, and food prices.
 
Governor Romney has proven he is ready for the job of Commander in Chief and to protect all Americans from the security and economic threats we confront.
 
Now it is our job to do everything possible to help Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan. With only a week left in this long campaign please consider volunteering at any one of the listed offices below.
 
A few hours of your time going door to door, doing sign waves, making phone calls and other similar efforts will be indispensable for Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan.  And trust me it will be enjoyable to work with like-minded people intent on changing the direction of our nation.
 
PLEASE CONTACT THE OFFICES BELOW!!  PLEASE VOLUNTEER!!  YOUR EFFORTS ARE VITAL!!

Bradley For NH Senate - Please Volunteer 

October 23, 2012

Dear Friends

The Presidential Debates are over. Now this marathon Presidential Race comes down to the final sprint to the finish line.

Governor Romney has proven in the campaign and the three debates that he has the knowledge, competence, backbone and trustworthiness to be America’s President. He will turn the economy around, get people back to work, reduce the deficit, and lift the crushing burden on the middle class of high energy, healthcare, and food prices. Governor Romney proved again last night he is ready for the job of Commander in Chief and to protect all Americans from the security and economic threats we confront.

Now it is our job to do everything possible to help Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan. With only two weeks left in this long campaign please consider volunteering at any one of the listed offices below.

A few hours of your time going door to door, doing sign waves, making phone calls and other similar efforts will be indispensable for Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan.  And trust me it will be enjoyable to work with like-minded people intent on changing the direction of our nation.
