At the monthly meeting of the Amherst Republican Town Committee, held March 1st, the following resolution was passed unanimously.
The New Hampshire Republican Party, State Senate, and State House leadership have been informed, as the resolution requires.
RESOLUTION OPPOSING MEDICAID EXPANSION
The following Resolution was adopted by vote of the Amherst Republican Committee members at a regular meeting of this body, on Saturday, March 1, 2014:
Whereas the Amherst Republican Committee finds that the Republican Party Platform clearly opposes the federal Affordable Care Act and the expansion of Medicaid in any form;
Whereas certain efforts of the General Court, which would accept Expanded Medicaid funding, unavoidably conflict with our Republican Party Platform;v
Whereas the Amherst Republican Committee finds that accepting some Expanded Medicaid funding now will inevitably result in the adoption of full, Expanded Medicaid in the near future.
Resolved, that the Amherst Republican Committee:
1. Declares its support of the Republican Party Platform, which opposes the federal Affordable Care Act and the expansion of Medicaid in any form including efforts of the General Court to accept any Expanded Medicaid funds.
2. Instructs the Committee officers to inform the New Hampshire Republican Party, the New Hampshire State Senate, and the New Hampshire State House of this resolution, and urges all Amherst Republican Committee members to make this decision known to all of our elected officials.
