Why I like Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire

clock_n6r_1280Today, Republicans in the House of Representatives passed the American Health Care Act, otherwise known as Trumpcare.
There is nothing in Trumpcare that helps hard-working Americans. This dangerous Trumpcare bill would lead to higher costs for less care for people across New Hampshire and the entire country. If you have a preexisting condition – which under Trumpcare includes cancer, asthma or diabetes – you could once again be discriminated against with higher costs. And if you are between the ages of 50 and 65 you would face a new age tax, which is among the reasons the AARP strongly opposes this bill.
Trumpcare would also dramatically hurt our ability to combat the heroin, fentanyl, and opioid crisis by ending Medicaid expansion and undermining the requirement that insurance companies must cover substance use disorder and behavioral health services.

By cutting and capping traditional Medicaid, Trumpcare would also hurt people from students who experience disabilities to older Americans in nursing homes. And Trumpcare would defund Planned Parenthood, which provides critical health services to thousands of New Hampshire women and families.
I will work in the Senate to defeat this harmful bill and to ensure that all of our citizens have the health care coverage that they need to lead healthy, productive lives.”

Thank you, Senator Maggie Hassan!
