New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte is concerned about what the Affordable Care Act may mean for weekly paychecks.
Ayotte voted against the law and has been critical of its rollout, calling it a mess. The Republican told members of the noon Rotary in Littleton that some of her constituents are afraid they may lose their doctor or hospital of choice, while others tell her they're seeing higher premiums. She's worried workers could have their hours cut as small-business owners avoid having to comply with the new rules.
"Even though it hasn't gone into effect yet, the law has redefined the 40-hour workweek in terms of who applies under the law. And some people are writing me saying my employer may cut my hours," Ayotte said.
Despite her criticism, Ayotte says that both parties need to come together to find solutions.
