WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed theRestoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act of 2015, for the first time sending Obamacare repeal legislation to the President’s desk.


   “Granite Staters sent me to Washington to stop the President’s reckless regulatory agenda, which is costing them jobs, income, and even their health insurance, in the case of this failing health care law,” said Rep. Guinta (NH01), whose language to repeal Obamacare’s excise tax on employer-sponsored health care benefits passed in today’s package.


    “After years of rising premiums, in many cases set to rise by double digits this year, simple repeal would save struggling middle-class Americans a lot of money.”


    President Obama is expected to veto the joint House and Senate legislation.“But that doesn’t mean I’ll stop fighting for a better approach to quality, affordable health care for Granite Staters,” said Manchester’s former mayor. Rep. Guinta added that House members have introduced bills to replace Obamacare with“patient-centered reforms that lower costs to expand coverage to millions.”

      The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reports that provisions under Obamacare, which passed Congress in 2010 with only Democrat votes, could mean nearly 10 million more Americans will lose employer-sponsored health coverage. According to other reports, an estimated five million lost their individual insurance plans, when Obamacare first struck.

    Most new sign-ups are the result of Medicaid expansion. Still, the Department of Health and Human Services has announced thatObamacare sign-ups have fallen almost 10 million short of expectations.  “A lot of the law’s assumptions turned out to be false,” said Rep. Guinta, a member of the House Financial Services Committee.“The price went from over $900 trillion to almost two trillion dollars – from shocking to staggering.”

       Rep. Guinta also cited the President’s promise that“If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan,” as well as his claim that Obamacare would save Americans an average of $2500 per year.Investor’s Business Daily reports that premiums have grown by an average of $4865 per person since 2008.   

   TheRestoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act of 2015 will proceed to the President via an expedited legislative procedure available to Congress once each year for budget agreements. The latest contains popular bipartisan measures, such as a medical device tax repeal and Rep. Guinta’s so-called “Cadillac Tax” repeal, which have garnered Democratic support.

   “Congress is starting the New Year right, fulfilling our pledge to do the people’s work,” said Rep. Guinta. 


Strong NH - Kuster Votes Against Repealing ObamaCare 


Release: Congresswoman Annie Kuster Continues to Support a Failing and Unpopular ObamaCare
"If President Obama vetoes this bill, the ongoing negative ramifications resulting from the unsustainable law are on him and lackeys like Representative Annie Kuster."

January 6, 2016

MANCHESTER - The US House of Representatives voted this evening 240 - 181 to send a bill that would repeal most of ObamaCare to President Obama's desk. The legislation previously passed the US Senate late last year.

With regards to New Hampshire's two Members of Congress, Representative Annie Kuster (NH-02) voted against the bill and Representative Frank Guinta (NH-01) supported it.

While President Obama is expected to veto the measure, today's effort marks the first time that an ObamaCare repeal bill will reach the president's desk. 

In a CBO estimate announced on Monday, the repeal bill would cut the deficit by $516 billion over the next decade.

ObamaCare remains very unpopular in the Granite State. In a recent UNH poll from last fall, 46% opposed the law, while only 38% supported it. Among Independents, who make up the largest voting block in New Hampshire, only 26% supported it.
Derek Dufresne of Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire released the following statement;

"Congress has rightfully deserved a lot of harsh criticism from the American people in recent years, but they should be applauded for finally working together to send an ObamaCare repeal bill to the President's desk. If he vetoes it, the ongoing negative ramifications resulting from the unsustainable law are on him and lackeys like Representative Annie Kuster.

"Granite Staters recognize it is just as unlikely for Congresswoman Annie Kuster to support repealing ObamaCare as it is for her to announce her first town hall meeting. They have grown to expect that neither scenario will ever happen. However, this vote was yet another reminder that residents of NH-02 have an out-of-touch representative who refuses to represent their views in Washington.





ALG - No funds for Planned Parenthood in education bill


Dec. 2, 2015, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the House to suspend consideration of the S1177 & HR 5 conference report, Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA):

"It is beyond absurd that House Republicansw ould be opening up new potential funding for Planned Parenthood through the Every Student Succeeds Act at a time when the House has voted to defund Planned Parenthood via budget reconciliation. By tying funds for school-based health centers to compliance with the Public Health Service Act, which explicitly allows Planned Parenthood to receive funds, the possibility of new funding is opened. Speaker Ryan needs to pull the bill from the docket immediately. There is simply no excuse for hiding potential funds in a House bill for Planned Parenthood, a group that is currently under investigation by a House special committee for their misdeeds."



Subpart 2 of part F of title VIII, as amended and redesignated by section 8001 of this Act, is further amended by adding at the end the following:


''Not withstanding section 8102, funds used for activities under this Act shall be carried out in accordance with the provision of section 399z–1(a)(3)(C) of the Public Health Service Act (42U.S.C. 280h–5(a)(3)(C)).''.
