 A judge has ruled that New Hampshire cannot collect a Medicaid Enhancement Tax from hospitals.   In a ruling released Friday, Hillsborough County Superior Court Philip Mangones says the state should have stopped collecting the tax in 2011 when a loophole in the Medicaid reimbursement system closed. He says the tax is unconstitutional.   Catholic Medical Center, St. Joseph Hospital and Exeter Hospital sued in 2011, challenging the $31 million they paid in the tax that year.

Brown Takes Aim At Health Law As Dems Fire Back

Credit www.scottbrown.com

On the first stop of what Scott Brown's campaign is calling his "Obamacare isn't Working Tour," the candidate worked hard to hit his message.
