Pelosi vs. NH: Wrecking the state budget

The Union Leader argues that the new health care bill unveiled this week by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would be bad for New Hampshire.
Under Pelosi's bill, families earning up to 150 percent of the poverty level are to be covered by Medicaid! That huge increase would have a disastrous effect on New Hampshire's budget.

This bill ought to draw an automatic "no" vote from Reps. Carol Shea-Porter and Paul Hodes. It would explode the already out-of-balance New Hampshire state budget and almost certainly result in a state income or sales tax. But Shea-Porter was on the stage with Nancy Pelosi, beaming with delight, when the speaker unveiled the plan. Maybe Hodes and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen will have more sense than to support this budget buster.

  1. Could you please go into further detail about this? I am sure you have some data to back up your claims? I'm sure you would never just post an article criticizing a member of Congress without some data to back it up. How, in comparison, would the matter of not reforming healthcare affect NH? With premiums going up 100% every ten years for NH residents.
