In Tuesday's Citizen, State Senator and Gubernatorial candidate Jeannie Forrester had a letter to the paper extolling "her" legislative accomplishments in the 2016 session. I did not check out how she voted on the other items she mentions, but I do know she voted against extending the Health Protection bill on March 31st 2016. Despite that vote, it passed the Senate by a 16-8 vote.
As she now campaigns for the Republican nomination for NH Governor, she has performed a very interesting flip-flop-spin that would make an Olympic gymnast envious. Her letter included the following:
• "Extended the for another two years, with no increased taxes, no new taxes, and no dollars use to support the program."
Approximately 48,000 low-income Granite Staters between the ages of 19 and 65 are enrolled in the New Hampshire Health Protection Program. Medicaid expansion also provides substance abuse benefits for about 6,000 Granite Staters.
