Letter: Expanded Medicaid Makes Sense

To the Editor:

When we have an opportunity to significantly improve the health and well-being of the citizens of New Hampshire, we have a moral obligation to do so. When we have an opportunity to inject $2.4 billion of federal money into our state’s economy, create 700 new jobs and save our state $45 million over the next seven years (these figures are from the Lewin Group study on Medicaid expansion in New Hampshire), we have a fiscal responsibility to do so. Medicaid expansion for New Hampshire makes sense. Contact your legislators and ask them to support expanded health-care benefits for New Hampshire.
