NHDP Statement on 80th Anniversary of Social Security 





CONCORD, N.H. – NHDP Chair Raymond Buckley released the following statement on the 80th Anniversary of Social Security:

“Today, we celebrate the 80th Anniversary of Social Security, a contract with Americans that allows them to retire with dignity after years of hard work. We celebrate the strength of Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid today that has helped Granite Staters for decades.”

“But unfortunately, Republicans continue their attacks on Social Security. Just this week in New Hampshire, John Kasich said he’d cut benefits for Baby Boomers, who are already close to retirement age. Sen. Kelly Ayotte supported raising the Social Security retirement age, as did Chris Christie. Jeb Bush supported a plan to partially privatize Social Security, putting Granite Staters’ retirement security at risk. New Hampshire just can’t afford Republicans’ ideas to undermine Social Security.”

“Democrats have stood behind Social Security, and strengthened it by passing the Affordable Care Act. While Republicans continue their attempts to chip away at Social Security, Democrats will stand by retirees and future retirees.”

NHDP - ACA Has Saved Women $1.4 Billion On Birth Control Pills

Concord, N.H. – A new report shows that the Affordable Care Act has saved women roughly $1.4 billion on birth control pills alone, yet Kelly Ayotte is still fighting to undermine the ACA’s provision requiring insurance companies to cover birth control free of cost.  
Not to mention that Ayotte has repeatedly doubled down on her pledge to try to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which has also helped more than 150,000 New Hampshire women gain access to expanded preventative health services without cost-sharing.
“Kelly Ayotte’s sham birth control bill would undermine the very provision of the Affordable Care Act that has saved women more than $1.4 billion on birth control pills alone,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Lizzy Price. “It’s time for Ayotte to give up her blatant political ploy and support efforts to actually expand access to affordable birth control that Democratic Senators are leading.

Supreme Court Ruling on Discrimination ‘Disparate Impact’ Could Harm People the Law Intended to Help

The Supreme Court has issued its ruling on whether and when ‘disparate impact’ is permitted under the Fair Housing Act; but whether or not disparate impact is good policy is far from settled.

The use of disparate impact -- the principle that a practice can be illegal if it affects minorities in a certain way -- is doing great harm to people the civil rights laws were intended to help. > Read more
