Position on Issues

WMUR, 2018

"One of the strange anomalies right now is that all of the funding that we put into NIH, the Institute of Health and the CDC Centers for Disease Control, we do not allow the the interests who study the impact of marijuana for pain medication, nausea, cancer. I want to see those types of studies done before we make a decision liek federal declassification of marijuana."

"What I think we should do is use the New England example, the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, that's been so successful. My opponent doesn't think it's urgent. I think it's very urgent."

"Where investments are needed, we can strip away decades of corporate subsidies, tax breaks, and sweetheart deals. Where taxes come into play, I believe our economy will grow again if we invest in our future by letting the tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans expire and use those funds to cut payroll taxes for every working American and every business that employs a worker."

"Rep. Annie Kuster 'supports the goal of universal health coverage,' but is also not backing Sanders's proposals, a spokesman said Wednesday, who added that the congresswoman has instead proposed a 'buy-in' option to allow those 55 and older to purchase Medicare."

"Today, Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02), a member of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health, announced her support of the Medicare Buy-In and Health Care Stabilization Act. This legislation would expand access to Medicare to allow people aged 50 to 64 to buy into the program and authorize the Department of Health and Human Services to negotiate volume discounts on prescription drugs.

"'I've spoken with Granite Staters throughout my district about the need to improve access to healthcare and lower the costs of care and prescription drugs,' said Kuster. 'We know that the vast majority of people who use the Medicare program are happy with its service and I believe opening up enrollment to a larger segment of the population will offer an affordable, quality care option for people nearing retirement age in New Hampshire and across the country. I'm committed to working with my colleagues to push back against President Trump’s efforts to undermine the Affordable Care Act and will continue to focus on ways to improve access to health care for all Americans.'"

"This evening, Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02), who served as an adoption attorney for 25 years, voted against legislation that would have limited women’s access to safe and legal abortion.

"As an adoption attorney for 25 years, I understand that the decision to end a pregnancy is deeply personal and difficult and should be made in consultation with one's family and doctor, not the government,' said Congresswoman Kuster. 'The fact of the matter is that abortions occurring after 20 weeks are exceedingly rare and this legislation would endanger women who are seeking such services for serious medical reasons. This bill is nothing more than an attempt to rollback women's access to comprehensive reproductive services.'"
