New Hampshire Citizens Alliance

Summary:


The Republican-led Congress has launched a rapid process of eliminating health coverage for 118,000 residents of New Hampshire by repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA). These cuts will severely reduce income to health facilities and result in lost jobs across sectors. The cuts also will come at severe cost to the state budget.


Despite these costs, Republican leaders in Congress have begun the process of dismantling the ACA, including repealing the ACA Medicaid expansion and tax credits for ACA marketplace coverage. This would eliminate coverage for 118,000 residents of New Hampshire. It is expected that Republicans would attempt further health care rollbacks focused on Medicaid and Medicare. Instead of eliminating coverage for 118,000 New Hampshire residents and 32 million nationwide—as well as causing premiums to double—the President and Congress should ensure affordable health care for all New Hampshire residents.
