Chris Sununu: Our 10-Year Mental-Health Plan continues to be fully funded

When I became Governor, I often said the mental-health crisis was New Hampshire's unspoken crisis. It had been neglected for years. But we changed that. This budget continues levels of funding for our mental-health programs, because, frankly, we all know that too much is at stake to let up. Our 10-Year Mental-Health Plan continues to be fully funded, with funding for additional designated receiving facility beds to solve the ER boarding crisis, to more local Mobile Crisis Teams, and more.

Don Bolduc: COVID: Against mask mandate; they collect bacteria

Q: Would you be in favor of a mask wearing mandate?

Bolduc: A mask mandate? No, I would not. I am unapologetically of the opinion that the masks cause more problems than they solve.

Q: How so?

Bolduc: I believe that they collect bacteria. I believe that that they get dirty. I believe that people use the same mask over and over and over again. And they don't change it. They don't change it out. We've had a huge littering problem with masks and rubber gloves, and that's creating a problem.

Don Bolduc: Keep some of ObamaCare but get the government out of it

The Affordable Care Act has some things in it that we need to keep. First of all, prenatal to postnatal care, pre-existing injuries, are hugely important. If you're going to change health care, you need to change the whole idea and paradigm. We owe people a health care system that's not going to bankrupt them. I think that problem is because the government controls too much of it and we need to get the government out of it, deregulate it, privatize it, make it more competitive.

Don Bolduc: Go from disease management to health management

I think if we if we stop allowing pharmaceuticals to control our political system that's going to go a long way. We need to go from disease management to health management, and we need to reward good health all the way through. And if we do that, a pill for every ill, and we manage your health, we're going to have a much healthier society and we're going to have much lower cost.

Don Bolduc: We need to put an emphasis on dental care & oral health

The other thing that we're not making premium in our health care is dental care, gum disease, oral health. It is so important. It reduces heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, heart attack, stroke. And we need to put an emphasis on that. Among our veterans dental care is is a huge problem, right? And in our society.

Corky Messner: COVID: Supports wearing a mask, against mandatory mask order

You know, it's interesting about masks. In my reading about the H1N1 pandemic in 2010, I found part of a paper that was talking about masks, and it was the same debate that's going on now. And so, yes, I support wearing a mask. No, I don't support a mandatory mask order.

Corky Messner: We need tort reform, allow market forces to work

We need tort reform in health care. Frivolous lawsuits add a tremendous amount of money to our health care system, and that will help bring down the costs, if we have tort reform. I think the thing we ought to keep in place is allowing people, children to stay on their health insurance until the age of 26. I think that's a good thing. But it's very important to get the cost of health care down, that we allow more market forces to work here, including transparency.

Don Bolduc: COVID: Claims Bill Gates wans microchips in vaccine

In a You Tube video, Bolduc made reference to a supposed plan to implant some sort of tracking microchips into people. "The only bracelets anyone is going to put on me are handcuffs, because I'm fighting for my individual rights, my constitutional rights. And the only chip that's going in me is a Dorito," Bolduc said. When asked about the microchip statement, Bolduc said Bill Gates, retired founder of MicroSoft, wants to implant people with tracking microchips.

Dan Feltes: Medicaid expansion & protect pre-existing conditions

Feltes has worked for Medicaid expansion and to protect people with pre-existing conditions and he was the sponsor of a bill for family and medical leave that Sununu vetoed over objections to its funding mechanism. Feltes said he wants to help working families. "We have some of the highest health care costs in the nation," Feltes said. "We have the second-worst opioid epidemic, the second-worst treatment capacity. We need to deal with those issues."

Bill O`Brien: ACA like Fugitive Slave Act: destructive of liberty

Former New Hampshire House Speaker O'Brien once compared the ACA to the 1850 Fugitive Slave Act in 2013, arguing it was equally destructive to individual liberty. More recently, he has pointed to spiking premiums for those on the individual markets--the pools set up under the ACA for those without access to employer-provided insurance.

Don Bolduc: Replace ACA with free market principle

Since the passage of the Affordable Care Act, many Republicans have campaigned on the message of "repeal and replace." Unfortunately, we have failed to create a common-sense plan to replace the ACA. Why should the free market principle be absent in health care? It shouldn't. If providers want to attract business, that should be done by offering a better product and an affordable cost structure.

A proposal to import prescription drugs from Canada to New Hampshire attracted bipartisan support winning praise from both the Democrat sponsoring the bill and the Republican he wants to replace. Sen. Dan Feltes told the Senate Commerce Committee that New Hampshire residents are too often choosing between their health and their financial security. Immediately following Feltes, Gov. Chris Sununu, praised not just Feltes' bill but others before the committee.

Andru Volinsky: We need to create statewide health care infrastructure

My view of health care is informed by my years as a board member at the Manchester Community Health Center, where I learned about the importance of primary and preventive care and how to deliver good care to people from diverse backgrounds with very different resources. Health care is a basic human right. We need to create a statewide health care infrastructure. We also need to stop treating women's reproductive care as a political issue. It's a constitutional right.

Dan Feltes: Protect people with pre-existing conditions

[In the state Senate], we worked across the aisle to expand access to health care for our families, increase support for opioid and mental health treatment providers, protect people with pre-existing conditions, set some of the toughest drinking water standards in the nation, invest in our public schools with the greatest education funding in state history, finally fund full-day kindergarten like any other grade, and advanced clean energy and community solar opportunities,

But, we face some major challenges, right now. Costs are rising for working families. We have the highest health care costs in the nation, we have the third highest electric rates in the nation, prescription drug costs are skyrocketing, families struggle to find behavioral health treatment for their loved ones, family businesses are struggling to find workers and workers are struggling to find affordable housing, and property taxes are going up while taxes for big corporations are going down.

Bill Weld: More consumer choice instead of single-payer

Instead of arguing endlessly and fruitlessly about whether the Affordable Care Act should be repealed there are various commonsense health care issues that could be addressed immediately, across party lines. Consumers should be permitted to establish personal health care savings accounts, and to choose their health care provider. They should be free to purchase pharmaceutical drugs across state lines and also in other countries. Their choice, not the government's.

Chris Sununu: Medicaid compromise has worked for 50,000 citizens

Another key component of growing our workforce is New Hampshire's work requirement for able bodied individuals, who are part of our Medicaid Expansion program. These provisions of Medicaid help lift people out of poverty by empowering them with the dignity of work and self-reliability. I know that leaders of both parties stand united and committed to the compromise reached last year helping to ensure healthcare for 50,000 of our citizens.

Andy Martin: ObamaCare blew up in Democrats' faces

I am nobody special in my book, but I have had access to really world class health care. The Democrats tried to go it alone, and ObamaCare blew up in their faces. Republicans need to sit down with Democrats and work together to preserve what is great about our system and enhance access where it is needed, while protecting the doctor/patient relationship. Not an easy assignment, but an essential one.

Molly Kelly: Backed Medicaid expansion; opposes efforts to limit access

I believe health care is a right for every person. That's why I voted for Medicaid expansion that now covers 50K people in NH. I oppose efforts that make accessing care more difficult, such as the work requirement.˙Efforts in Washington to remove critical rights and protections made possible by the ACA pose a threat to the health and well-being of Granite Staters. No one should face bankruptcy due to a medical emergency or be denied health insurance because they have a pre-existing condition.

Chris Sununu: State must invest in mental healthcare system

We have tasked Health and Human Services with developing a comprehensive 10 year plan for the mental health system. We provided funding to establish 60 new beds for community based transitional housing and created a fourth rapid response mobile crisis unit to divert hospitalizations for mental health issues. It is unacceptable for citizens in mental health crises to be waiting for treatment for weeks on end.

Chris Sununu: Push for a true accounting of our Medicaid program

Heath Care continues to be an area of critical need in our state--across the entire country, frankly. And where we have failed in the past, I am pushing for a true accounting of our Medicaid program, so we can reconcile estimated Medicaid payments to actual costs. And as we go forward, be sure that we won't wait two years to check in on them again.

This budget requires the Commissioner of Health and Human Services to make quarterly reports, not just to me, but to Legislative leadership about where we actually stand on our true costs so we can become a more nimble government that is responsive not just reactive. As governor, I won't make people wait until after an election to discover we may have a shortfall. We have to be transparent. We have to be honest with the people and honest with ourselves.

[Delivering his victory speech]: "Together, we will take this next step forward for New Hampshire by bringing and keeping more young people, young families, new businesses and start-ups in our state," Van Ostern said in prepared remarks. "We'll build an economy that works for everyone."

"I want to congratulate Colin Van Ostern on a great victory tonight," said the New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair. "Colin has a record of accomplishment and the vision to keep New Hampshire moving forward. His work to restore funding for Planned Parenthood, to expand Medicaid, to invest in renewable energy projects and to deliver debt-free college make him an exceptional and strong candidate."

Bernie Sanders: Other countries cover everyone; why can't we?

Q: Secretary Clinton, you said of Senator Sanders that "It's very hard to see how any of his proposals could ever be achievable."

CLINTON: Senator Sanders and I share big progressive goals. I've been fighting for universal healthcare for many years, and we're now on the path to achieving it. I don't want us to start over again. I want to build on the progress we've made; got from 90 percent coverage to 100 percent coverage. I don't want to rip away the security that people finally have; 18 million people now have healthcare; pre-existing conditions are no longer a barrier.

SANDERS: Let's deal with the comments that Secretary Clinton made. Every major country has managed to provide healthcare to all people and they are spending significantly less per capita than we are. I do not accept that the US can't do that. I do not accept that the US can't stand up to the rip-offs of the pharmaceutical industry which charge us the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs.

Bernie Sanders: Health care for 29 million more uninsured

CLINTON: The Republicans want to repeal the Affordable Care Act, I want to improve it. Senator Sanders wants us to start all over again. This was a major achievement of President Obama. It is helping people right now. I am not going to have us plunge back into a contentious national debate that has very little chance of succeeding. Let's make the Affordable Care Act work for everybody.

SANDERS: I am on the Health Education Labor Committee. That committee wrote the Affordable Care Act. The idea I would dismantle health care while we're waiting to pass a Medicare-for-all is not accurate. The Affordable Care Act has clearly, as Secretary Clinton said, done a lot of good things, but, what it has not done is dealt with the fact we have 29 million people today who have zero health insurance, we have even more who are underinsured with large deductibles and co-payments and prescription drug prices are off the wall. So I do believe that in the future, we should have health care for all.

Carol Shea-Porter: Negotiate prices for prescription drugs with manufacturers

Shea-Porter said she continues to be frustrated by gridlock on Capitol Hill. "We need to work with each other," Shea-Porter said.

She cited a stalemate on prescription drugs as a "classic example" of Washington gridlock. She has long supported allowing the federal government to negotiate prices for prescription drugs with manufacturers. "But we weren't able to get that done, and now, the cost of drugs is skyrocketing," she said.

"It is really about reconnecting with the people," she said. "The people of the district do know me and know I've been an advocate. So I don't have to re-introduce myself, but what I do need to do and will do is work as hard as I can and take nothing for granted."

Scott Brown: ObamaCare's mandate means higher costs and fewer jobs

Former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown released a new ad highlighting his ties to New Hampshire. His ad attacks Shaheen on ObamaCare's employer mandate.

Brown's ad actually targets ObamaCare, but he spends the first quarter of the new radio ad outlining his connections to the state. "I was born at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard," he said. "My mom was a waitress at Hampton Beach. My dad, an airman at Pease. I've been a homeowner and taxpayer in Rye for over 20 years. I care about New Hampshire."

He's also made opposition to ObamaCare a central line of attack, and the new ad targets the mandate that businesses of a certain size must provide health care for their employees or pay a penalty. The ad declares the mandate "means higher costs and fewer jobs."

Jeanne Shaheen: AdWatch: Falsely promised all people could keep insurance

A new Americans for Prosperity 30-second television spot targeting Sen. Jeanne Shaheen for voting for the Affordable Care Act begins airing on WMUR-TV on Jan. 2. The ad buy is around $200,000, and offers similar themes and quotes from news stories that an ad from Ending Spending raised last month.

The narration in the ad points to Shaheen saying, from the Senate floor, that people would be able to keep their insurance if the law was approved, a statement that was deemed the "Lie of the Year" by PolitiFact.com. The narration also quotes from new stories noting that many N.H. residents will have to drive long distances for care due to the only out-of-group insurance carrier in the state, Anthem, eliminating coverage from half the hospitals in the state.

Shaheen's campaign launched a fundraising effort, asking supporters to help her "respond right away" to the ad buy: "The Tea Party billionaires spent over $8 million attacking N.H. in 2012 and could spend even more this time."

Jeanne Shaheen: No apologies for helping people get affordable insurance

[At a N.H. GOP gathering] Brown tried to focus on Sen. Shaheen and linked her to what he said were fundamental problems with President Obama's health care plan. "Up until it blew up, she was still one of the No. 1 supporters," he said.

"She makes no apologies for trying to help people get affordable health insurance," Shaheen's husband said. And she has called for the White House to extend the enrollment period, saying citizens should not be penalized for the government's botched sign-up process.

Mr. Shaheen also noted that Brown might face questions about health care himself. As a state senator in 2006, he supported Gov. Mitt Romney's health care overhaul in Massachusetts, which was the model for the Obama plan. Brown later argued that the two plans were very different, but enough similarities exist that New Hampshire's conservative voters could question whether he shares their values.

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen is among 11 Democrats targeted by the Republican National Committee for their support of ObamaCare. The RNC is using robocalls and posting on Facebook to urge people to call their representatives and ask "why they supported President Obama's lie that people could keep their healthcare plans under ObamaCare."

The targets besides Shaheen are Reps. Gary Peters (MI) and Bruce Braley (IA), Sens. Mark Warner (VA), Mark Begich (AK), Dick Durbin (IL), Kay Hagan (NC), Mary Landrieu (LA), Jeff Merkley (OR), Mark Pryor (AR), and Mark Udall (CO). The robocall script reads:

"President Obama and the Democrats said you could keep your healthcare plan under ObamaCare. Now we know [SENATOR] actually VOTED to make it more difficult. Call [SENATOR] at (XXX)-XXX-XXX & ask why [he/she] lied."

The robocalls are a response to Democrats launching the "GOP Shutdown Watch" campaign, highlighting Republican senate candidates who supported the partial federal government shutdown.

Rick Santorum: Give Medicare same options and opt-out as Congress

Q: Rep. Paul Ryan had a plan where he'd like to move seniors off Medicare, give them a voucher or premium support, and then they would take care of their health care from there. You said seniors should be affected right now, 55 plus, have them affected right now?

SANTORUM: I hear this all the time: "We should have the same kind of health care the members of Congress have." Well, that's pretty much what Paul Ryan's plan is. The members of Congress have a premium support model. So does every other federal employee. The federal government has a whole bunch of different options available. If you want a more expensive plan, you pay more of a co-insurance. If you want a less expensive plan, you don't. But fundamental difference between Barack Obama's: it's whether you believe people can be free to make choices or whether you have to make decisions for them. And I believe seniors, just like every other American, should be free to make the choices in their healthcare plan that's best for them.

Rick Santorum: Promote Health Savings Accounts as market-based solution

Q: When you voted for a new prescription drug benefit that did not have a funding mechanism, were you advancing socialism?

SANTORUM: Well, I've said repeatedly that we should have had a funding mechanism. In that bill, we had health savings accounts, something I'd been fighting for, for 15 years. We also had Medicare Advantage to transform the entire Medicare system into Medicare Advantage is basically a premium support type model.

Q: Were you advancing socialism, though?

SANTORUM: Medical health savings accounts is an anti-socialistic idea to try to build a bottom-up, consumer-based economy in health care. The same way with Medicare Advantage. And we also structured the Medicare Part D benefit to be a premium support model as a way of trying to transition Medicare. So there were a lot of good things in that bill. There was one really bad thing. We didn't pay for it, we should have paid for it and that was a mistake.
