Spread the Word

Many might consider this political and take offense. However, I sincerely believe that everyone should have health insurance so I am willing to take the heat! If this letter from our Senator applies to you, please take note. – Lil

Dear friend,

So far, nearly 20,000 Granite Staters have signed up for healthcare insurance during the open enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act. It’s important to note that one week from today – on December 15th – the 2018 open enrollment period ends. I want to make sure that if you need healthcare coverage, you’ve had an opportunity to review your options. You can do that now by going towww.healthcare.gov/get-coverage/.

The Trump administration has been trying to keep Granite Staters in the dark about this important signup period by slashing open enrollment advertising funding by 90 percent, cutting the open enrollment period in half, and defunding support staff that assist folks with signing up. So, friends, it’s up to each of us to get the word out to family members and friends.

In the Senate, I continue to be focused on bipartisan efforts to bring down premiums, stabilize the healthcare marketplaces, and restore funding for enrollment ads and outreach. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, nearly 94,000 Granite Staters have gotten individual health coverage through the healthcare marketplace, and nearly 50,000 have gotten coverage thanks to the Medicaid expansion. The Affordable Care Act has been a critical tool in our fight against the opioid epidemic, enabling 11,000 individuals with substance use disorders to get treatment for the first time. These gains are extremely important for the people of our state and I’m determined to not go backwards.

    Well, Lil, thanks for caring enough about your fellow man (and woman) to post this, tho my response may generate a little more political heat than you might be anticipating… you see, the only reason I have not signed up for health insurance for several years now is not so much that I have been unaware of the sign up period, but because I have been unable to afford it, having had to use all my financial resources to pay for a wrongful legal battle in which a couple of your townspeople have been falsely utilizing my historic, 1848 deeded, RR easement property rights… see the website link shown – but thank YOU again for thinking of everyone, and have a blessed Merry Christmas, from us folks living beside The (Public’s) Historic Cheshire Rail Trail along the Walpole-Westmoreland town line… Pat & Sean https://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/314/876/815/
