Dear Friend,

The Committee to Elect House Democrats wants to thank Maureen Mann for a hard fought campaign in the Rockingham District 32 special election. We were thrilled that we had the opportunity to support such a strong and experienced candidate. Although we did not achieve our goal, we are extremely thankful for the tireless effort put in by Maureen and all of her dedicated volunteers.

This week, Senate Republicans continued in the ways of the House Republicans. A few days ago, Senator Bradley said that reauthorizing the bipartisan Medicaid expansion program he helped draft last year is 'the right thing to do.' However, despite acknowledging the benefits for families across the state, Senate Finance Committee voted against continuing the bipartisan plan directly along party lines.

The program has been working and providing care to over 38,000 Granite Staters. In a report released earlier this week, The New Hampshire Hospital Association said that 'emergency room visits by uninsured patients fell 22 percent in the first three months of 2015 compared to same time period in 2014, a drop that New Hampshire hospitals attribute to Medicaid expansion.'

“This latest report continues to show that the New Hampshire Health Protection Plan is working by reducing the costs that businesses and those of us with insurance pay to care for those who have no insurance or way of paying for their care,” said Hospital Association President Steve Ahnen.

Senate Republicans' irresponsibility this week shows how much is at stake for Granite Staters. Please continue to support  House Democrats so that we can take back the House in 2016 and get results for New Hampshire's people, businesses and economy.
