Oct. 31 To the Editor:

I urge my fellow citizens to go out and vote, along with me, for Chris Pappas for Congress Nov. 6.

Chris will fight tooth and nail to protect and preserve Social Security and Medicare. The current majority in Congress threatens either to privatize or to cut deeply into funding for these critical, time-honored programs which have worked so well for so many people for decades now.

In addition, Chris will advocate strongly for a woman's right to choose. And, as a member of the NH Executive Council, he has promoted successfully, on a bi-partisan basis, the expansion of health care / Medicaid for over 50,000 residents of NH.

In terms of health care, he would oppose any attempts to remove protections for people with pre-existing conditions, a critical aspect of the Affordable Care Act and favored by a majority of Americans.

Please vote Chris Pappas for Congress Nov. 6!

Henry M. Smith
