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."

WMUR, 2018

"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."

Candidate's Website, 2015

"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."

Other, 2017

"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."

Candidate's Website, 2017

President Trump's border wall ... is a boondoggle that will do nothing to address our broken immigration system."


Candidate's Website, 2019

"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.'"

Candidate's Website, 2017

"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.'"

Candidate's Twitter Feed, 2022

"I've been heartened to see the outpouring of support for Ukraine in the weeks since Russia began its invasion.

"Tonight I voted to advance additional military, medical & humanitarian aid for Ukraine & send a clear message to Putin: America is unwavering in our support of Ukraine."

Candidate's Twitter Feed, 2022

"Guns are the number one killer of children in America—we can & must prevent gun violence while protecting the rights of responsible gun owners.

"Proud to help pass the #ProtectingOurKidsAct & I urge my colleagues in the Senate to pass this slate of measures to #EndGunViolence."

Voting Record, 2022

Rep. Kuster voted in favor of the "George Floyd Justice in Policing Act," a law enforcement reform bill that would restrict qualified immunity, among many other changes.

"Today, as the final installment of the #ChildTaxCredit hit bank accounts across NH, moms & advocates shared how their families used the tax cut.

"From child care to fresh foods, the Child Tax Credit is a lifeline for families – that’s why I’m working to extend it."

Candidate's Twitter Feed, 2022

"This year, I helped pass the Women’s Health Protection Act—legislation to codify the constitutional right to an abortion established in Roe v. Wade.

"Regardless of SCOTUS’s decision, it's essential we get this bill signed into law to permanently protect reproductive freedoms."

Candidate's Twitter Feed, 2022

"This week, the House passed legislation to ban oil & gas drilling off the Atlantic, Pacific & Florida Gulf coasts and in the Arctic Nat’l Wildlife Refuge.

"Proud to support bipartisan action to protect our environment & coastal communities from offshore drilling."

Candidate's Website, 2022

"While the steps announced by the Biden administration today to address student loan debt represent positive progress to deliver some relief to low-income and middle-class families, more must be done to make education affordable and ensure student loan debt isn’t financially debilitating millions of Americans and weakening our economy.

"Student loan debt has been financially devastating for many Granite Staters — especially for the nearly 40 percent of student loan borrowers who are on the hook paying for an education they didn’t complete. For those who did graduate and hold degrees, many are not making a living wage. A traditional four-year education is not the path for everyone, and I have long pushed for expanding access to more forms of education including skills training, workforce development, and apprenticeship programs which are crucial to solving the workforce shortage, strengthening our economy, and improving the lives of Granite Staters."

Should the federal government combat inflation by requiring budget cuts to match any new federal spending?

Other, 2022

At a WMUR debate, Kuster said, "Well, I'll tell the taxes that are not too high are the taxes on Amazon that pays nothing. And the millionaires and billionaires that the tax cut under President Trump that added $2 trillion to our deficit. My opponent loves to talk about the deficit but he doesn't seem to add do the math that it was taxes on millionaires and billionaires that really started driving the deficit up. So I want to make sure that these corporations pay their fair share of taxes. And that's why I voted for the Inflation Reduction Act to make sure that happens."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2022

Should the federal government combat inflation by repealing or revising the Jones Act to allow more foreign involvement in shipping between U.S. ports?

WMUR, 2016

"'The Keystone XL project was denied by President Obama following a long and extensive environmental and safety review,' a Kuster spokesperson said. 'Congresswoman Kuster believes that all energy infrastructure projects deserve a thorough and comprehensive review that takes into account the input of impacted communities as well as the environmental and economic consequences of a project.'

"'It’s for these reasons that Congresswoman Kuster opposed efforts to force through approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline before the completion of the Presidential Permit application. Undermining the review process could have serious implications for energy infrastructure projects, including those in New Hampshire,' the spokesperson said."
