Gov. Maggie Hassan has announced her proposed budget ffor 2015-2016. I got the healthcare part and I had to stop reading it.
Socialized healthcare has been implemented in the granite state. More commonly known as "Obamacare" the press releases I've seen state that since November about 55,000 have signed up for socialized healthcare statewide. Assuming a statewide population of 1.2 million people, this translates into about 2.8% of the state's population is now on government provided healthcare.
Gov. Hassan is proposing spending some $17 million dollars to offset "declining" or "dropping off" (as they put it) Federal funds used for socialized healthcare.
Where is this $17 million going to come from?
And it doesn't get any better. Rep. Frank Guinta in an announcement made today stated that he has introduced H.R. 879 called "Ax The Tax" on Healthcare Benefits. If the Guinta materials are accruate starting in 2018 healthcare premiums will be taxed by as much as 40%.
This is actually double taxation. Individuals will be taxed on income and on their healthcare premiums!
They don't even do this in Canada.
