Sure seems like it. On March 13th , she wrote this op-ed piece in the Laconia Daily Sun, where she seemed to be supporting expansion. As she wrote ".. as of September 2015, there has been a 30 percent decrease in uninsured emergency room visits, a 38 percent decrease in uninsured inpatient visits, and a 28 percent decrease in uninsured outpatient visits....If the NHHPP isn't reauthorized, 48,000 Granite Staters will lose coverage to primary and preventive health care services, but will still have access to emergency care. As a consequence, uncompensated care will go up and the burden of this care will again be shifted to businesses and taxpayers."
She was one of seven NH Senate Republicans who voted in 2014 in favor or the program. So what changed?
She was the only Senator who announced a run for governor. Soon after, she voted against re authorization saying the work requirement isn’t strong enough. “The best way to help people is by offering a hand up not a hand out.” Governing to get votes, not doing what is best for her constituents
There are quite a few working families in NH that simply cannot afford to buy private health insurance. It really is as simple as that. Without the ACA, they would not have health insurance.
According to Sen. Forrester's website “As Governor, whenever the politicians go after our communities, I’m going to stand with the people one hundred percent of the time.” Just not this time.
