“Terminate It”: What Trump’s Obamacare Repeal Will Cost New Hampshire

What Will Chris Sununu Do to Stop the President From Ripping Health Care From 89,000 Granite Staters?

Yesterday, President Trump doubled down on his administration’s ultimate goal to “terminate” the ACA even as the country faces its worst public health crisis in history. The deadly effects that a repeal of the Affordable Care Act would cause are unquestionable. 

In New Hampshire alone:

  • 89,000 people would lose health care coverage, raising the state’s uninsured rate among its nonelderly population from 6 percent to 14.3 percent.
  • 571,300 people with preexisting conditions could face higher premiums, face benefit exclusions, or be denied coverage altogether if they ever needed to turn to the individual market for coverage in another state.
  • $366 million in federal funding for health coverage would be lost.

“President Trump wants to rip away millions of Americans’ health care, even as they need it now more than ever,” said DGA Communications Director David Turner. “As New Hampshire faces a deadly pandemic, the question is simple: What will Chris Sununu do to stop Trump from ripping health care from 89,000 Granite Staters?”
