CONCORD, NH – Tonight, the New Hampshire Senate defeated an amendment to SB505 offered by Senator Jeb Bradley. The vote was along party lines, 10-14. The amendment would have protected individuals in New Hampshire from being forced to purchase private health care insurance under the new federal health care mandate passed by Congress. Thus far, at least 14 states have filed suit against the federal government over the provision.
Commenting on the defeat of Senator Bradley’s proposed amendment was Cornerstone-Actions’ Kevin Smith:
“The Democrats in the State Senate demonstrated today that they are just as tone-deaf to the will of the voters, as their counterparts in Washington are. Their vote against Senator Bradley’s amendment is indicative of their blind allegiance to
the leftist agenda of the Obama Administration.
