CONCORD – Americans for Prosperity – New Hampshire (AFP-NH) today offered the following comments on a proposal announced by Governor Hassan and Speaker Norelli to accelerate the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, commonly called ObamaCare, in New Hampshire.
“The so-called compromise offered by Governor Hassan and Speaker Norelli is nothing more than a direct effort to accelerate the implementation of the failed ObamaCare law in New Hampshire,” said Greg Moore, AFP-NH State Director. “By creating a state ObamaCare exchange, this plan brings the massive problems of the federal rollout here. By having a simple, open-ended Medicaid expansion, it guarantees that tens of thousands of people will be forced onto a substandard government-run health care program as long as the eye can see. Furthermore, by eliminating any leverage at all with the prospect of eliminating the program, this plan guarantees that the state would never get a waiver from the federal government. This ‘compromise’ is just a simple plan to make ObamaCare a permanent fixture in New Hampshire.”
