New NH Dems Medicaid Website

As House Democrats renew efforts to expand health insurance access to working families and strengthen the Granite State economy with Medicaid Expansion today, the New Hampshire Democratic Party is launching a new grassroots organizing websiteto support their efforts:

www.nhdp.org/MedicaidExpansion

As the clock struck midnight on January 1st, New Hampshire began losing $500,000 every day; this new website will show in real time how much the Senate Republicans reckless decision to block expansion is costing us. Additionally it displays second by second how much each of these irresponsible Senators is costing their constituents and the communities they were supposed to represent.

Moving forward with Medicaid Expansion would expand health insurance access to 58,000 Granite Staters, bring $2.5 billion into the New Hampshire economy, create 700 jobs, and save the state $92 million. Unfortunately, despite bipartisan support for expansion Tea Party Republicans in the State Senate blocked this fiscally responsible initiative.

Rather than accept federal funds – already paid by New Hampshire taxpayers – state Senate Republicans sided with the Tea Party. Despite significant compromise from Governor Hassan and Speaker Norelli, these Tea Party Senate Republicans walked away from negotiations.

Senate Republicans are following Ted Cruz’s lead. If they can’t get their way then they won’t pass anything – no matter the pain they will inflict on New Hampshire families.

We can’t let that happen. Spread the word by sharing this website on
Facebook, Twitter, and social media and by continuing to write letters to the editor about how expansion would benefit New Hampshire.
 

 

Friends,

As we prepare to vote on military sexual assault in the coming days, I can’t stop thinking about this fact: There were 26,000 instances of sexual assault in our military a year ago – and 50% of female victims said they didn’t report the crime because they believed that nothing would be done.

We have to remove this stain from one of our nation’s proudest institutions.

I’ve worked closely with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand to develop the Military Justice Improvement Act to address this most fundamental failure: our broken system leaves victims with nowhere to turn because they fear they won’t be taken seriously or could face retaliation.

Our legislation creates transparency by taking the decision to prosecute outside the chain of command. This straightforward, common sense change will end the cycle of sexual assault and fear. Help us pass it.

Click here: Add your voice to demand Congress pass the Military Justice Improvement Act immediately. The heroes of our military deserve nothing less.

Our military’s traditions of honor and respect are too important to continue to be plagued by this issue.

All the men and women who volunteer to protect our country deserve to know it will protect them. They need to know that if they come forward with a report, their cases will be handled fairly and impartially.

We strengthen our military when victims of sexual assault have the confidence to come forward and report crimes, and we remove fear and stigma from the process.

We strengthen our military when we are able to deliver fair and impartial justice on behalf of victims.

Help us. Support the heroes who volunteer on our behalf by clicking here to sign our petition.

Thank you,

Jeanne
