HCRC Passes Resolution Opposing Renewal of
Obamacare Medicaid Expansion
At their February monthly meeting, members of the Hillsborough County Republican Committee in attendance unanimously approved a resolution expressing their strong opposition to renewing expansion of Medicaid (HB 1696). The HCRC passed a similar resolution in 2014 prior to initial authorization of Medicaid expansion as part of the so-called "Affordable Care Act" more commonly known as Obamacare. That legislation sunsets the program if it is not reauthorized before the end of 2016. This resolution calls for market oriented reforms to ensure access to affordable high quality health care from the private sector rather than expanding the disaster of Obamacare causing further increases to federal and state spending, increasing property taxes, increasing utility costs, and significantly increasing health insurance premiums.
The resolution as passed, is attached. All HCRC members are strongly encouraged to contact their state legislators and urge them to vote against Obamacare Medicaid expansion when it comes up for a vote again in March. Remind them this is a Republican platform issue and if we continue down this road of Obamacare Medicaid expansion, it will likely lead to a sales and/or income tax in the state of New Hampshire.
