NRSC - Time for a FULL REPEAL and REPLACEMENT of Obamacare!

   

Friend,

We are 3 days out from the 5th anniversary of one of the most devastating pieces of federal legislation ever crafted in this country: Obamacare.

The rollout was a disaster, but the implementation is an even greater fiasco:

•    Thousands of Americans have been dropped from their insurance plans

•    Health care premiums have SKYROCKETED for many Americans

•    Obamacare’s employer mandate is set to cost American companies over $100 BILLION in fines for those who fail to comply   

•    Countless other harmful effects to our economy remain to be seen
 

It's time for a FULL REPEAL and REPLACEMENT of Obamacare!

Sign our petition if you agree!

NH House Republican Majority Caucus comments on HB591 Repeal of the Gas Tax 

House Republican Majority Caucus Reacts to
Committee Report on HB 591
 
CONCORD, New Hampshire – The House Republican Majority Caucus commented on the committee report of the gas tax repeal bill, HB 591.The bill would reduce the current state gas tax by five cents a gallon.
 
Sponsor of HB591, Rep. James Spillane-Deerfield said, “The act of raising this tax in 2013 has hurt middle class families in rural areas of New Hampshire. It especially hurts those on fixed incomes and working families in the most rural areas who must travel long distances to reach stores or their places of employment. We should not be expecting to place the costs of widening Route 93 on the backs of the hard working and retired people in rural New Hampshire.”
 
"It is another disappointing example of maintaining an unnecessary tax that hurts employers and consumers alike," stated Stephen Stepanek- Amherst, for the House Republican Majority Caucus. "The real problem is that Governor Hassan insists on diverting nearly one-third of the gas tax from repairing and maintaining roads and bridges to other spending. The Governor proposes to divert over $160 million from the Highway Fund over the biennium.  We say that money should be used for our roads and bridges.Proper budgeting would return the funds diverted to public safety back to the Highway budget where it is needed.”

NHDP - Frank Guinta Votes to Repeal Health Coverage from Over 70,000 Granite Staters 

Concord, N.H. – Instead of focusing on the priorities that will help support New Hampshire’s businesses, middle class families and economy, Frank Guinta voted yesterday to repeal health coverage from over 70,000 Granite Staters.   
 
The vote marked the 56th(!) time that House Republicans have voted to repeal and undermine the Affordable Care Act.
 
“It’s shameful but telling that Frank Guinta and House Republicans’ number one priority is not supporting our businesses, middle class families and economy, but rather trying to repeal health coverage from more than 70,000 Granite Staters,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Press Secretary Aaron Jacobs. “Repealing the Affordable Care Act would not only take away the health and economic security that comes from quality health coverage, but it would also increase the deficit and reverse our progress to slow the growth of health care costs.”
 
“The people of New Hampshire deserve elected representatives in Washington who will work together to move our economy forward, not play political games with Granite Staters’ health and economic well-being,” added Jacobs

US Rep GUINTA STATEMENT ON REPLACING THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT 

banner

WASHINGTON. D.C. – Congressman Frank Guinta released the following statement following the House passage of H.R. 596:

 

            “Today, the House took action to replace the Affordable Care Act – a law that has reduced the number of full-time workers by 2.5 million, increased premiums by more than $4000, and reduced small business wages by $22.6 billion annually.  Granite Staters deserve better. 

 

You deserve a patient-centered approach that puts you and your family first, protects those with preexisting conditions, and allows children to stay under their parents’ coverage until the age of 26.  Likewise, our small businesses deserve the ability to pool together resources to increase their buying power, while allowing individuals to purchase insurance across state lines and restoring the more than $700 billion in Medicare cuts to our seniors.”
