Did you see the story in the November 26th edition of the Hampton Union ?
Stiles at Center of Medicaid Debate
And the editorial in the November 26th edition of the Portsmouth Herald?
Hold N.H. Republicans Accountable for Medicaid Vote
THIS is why I am running for the State Senate and why I need your help so that we can take back control of the State Senate in 2014.
The vote by Senate Republicans – including Senator Stiles -on November 21 slammed the Medicaid Expansion “door” shut in the face of 50,000 hard-working New Hampshire teachers’ aides, retail clerks, home health care workers, fast-food restaurant workers and others without access to employer sponsored health care, right as the holiday season was beginning. It also turns down $2.5 billion that would have been invested in our economy to purchase goods and services from local businesses and used to create much needed good paying new jobs.
I’m running for the State Senate because the people of Greenland, Newcastle, Rye, North Hampton, Hampton, Hampton Falls, Seabrook, South Hampton, Kensington, Newton and Stratham deserve a Senator who will not only listen to them but hears them and will stand up for the things that matter to them when it matters most.
We need to put people ahead of politics and come up with practical, common sense solutions that are right for New Hampshire and are not driven by any outside ideological agenda. We need to stop trying to disable and dismantle government and focus again on having good and effective government that serves the interests of all of us. And we need to replace the politics of posturing, delay and obstruction that has characterized the NH Senate this year with New Hampshire’s traditional “can-do” approach to getting things done.
Won’t you join me? Send a signal that you will not forget the Senate’s vote on November 21 and you will hold those that voted against Medicaid expansion accountable. Please donate to my campaign now.
Thanks very much.
