NHLA Gold Standard Activism – Concord (3/9/16)


Today I assisted the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance in distributing the Gold Standard, their weekly legislative recommendations, to the New Hampshire House of Representatives.

The Gold Standard for this week was quite comprehensive, a massive 19 pages long. The star of the show was HB1696, which would extend and expand Medicaid, a massive entitlement program. Reps are warned that voted for this bill would heavily weigh in the NHLA’s legislative scorecard.

The hall was absolutely packed with lobbyists and activists, mostly those supporting the Medicaid expansion bill. This included the religious pro-government group I affectionately refer to as the Church of the States singing songs about healthcare being a universal right and praying for more taxation.

I joined NHLA volunteers Lisa McGunnigle and Will Anderson in distributing the massive Gold Standard. Between the three of us, we covered both entrances very well. Towards the end of the selection, I also distributed some remaining Gold Standard copies to University of New Hampshire students who were present on a tour. Hopefully it will serve to counterbalance some of the crazy things they’re sure to be learning in school.
