Insurance choices: Shaheen, Shea-Porter, Kuster mislead
Kuster: "I'm pleased that beginning in 2015, Granite Staters will have an additional insurer competing for their business. Increasing competition in the health insurance market will help drive down costs and expand options for consumers in New Hampshire."
Two things are immediately noticeable. One, they continue to speak through the words given them by their party masters. Two, since when has either of them been a vote for increasing competition in health care?
The policies of Shaheen and Shea-Porter, supported by Kuster, directly caused the shrinking of New Hampshire's health insurance marketplace. They continue to support those policies. Their claim to favor competition and choice is a fiction.
