Washington, D.C. – Today Congressman Chris Pappas stood up for New Hampshire families by voting to pass House Resolution 271, which he co-sponsored, condemning the Trump Administration’s efforts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. The Trump Administration’s lawsuit seeks to gut Medicaid expansion, eliminate tax subsidies that make health insurance affordable, remove the cap on out-of-pocket costs, and take away protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

“We cannot allow this lawsuit effort to succeed in sabotaging Americans’ health care,” said Congressman Pappas. “Today’s vote sends a clear message to the Administration that it is time to end its efforts to gut the Affordable Care Act, which guarantees essential health benefits, protections, and insurance options for Granite Staters. I  will continue to work with my colleagues to improve upon the Affordable Care Act and ensure every American has affordable health care.”

Last week Congressman Pappas cosponsored The Protecting Pre-Existing Conditions & Making Health Care Affordable Act which will lower health insurance premiums, strengthen protections for people with pre-existing conditions, and crack down on junk health insurance plans.
