Dr. Eck’s Undervalued Alternative to Obamacare

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Dr. Alieta Eck remains one of the NJ GOP’s most undervalued assets, Save Jerseyans. She’s running for Congress in a tough district, it’s true, but her work in the health care industry through the groundbreaking Zarephath Health Center is truly inspiring. It’s also a tangible path forward for a Republican Party that’s often unfairly accused of being the “Party of No” where one of our era’s major political issues is concerned.

Our friends from Chasing New Jersey recently took a deeper look…

Obamacare Will Burst N.J. Benefits Bubble

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

CadillacGovernor Christie is on the Ocean City Music Pier today pushing for another sweeping round of public employee benefit reforms, Save Jerseyans.

It’s timely.

You know what the pension numbers look like because you’re a regular reader. That being said, our obnoxiously gigantic $40 billion in unfunded pension liabilities is eclipsed only by a public employee health benefit program that’s $47 billion in the red. What else could you expect from a state with roughly 81 government employees per square mile?

Great Obamacare News for Me, Bad for You!

By Irwin Fletcher | The Save Jersey Blog bart phone call

Did you see this, Save Jerseyans?

You don’t even have to be a real person to get Obamacare subsidies!

It’s being reported that the Government Accountability Office (an oxymoronic construction) successfully created fake people with fake documentation who obtained Obamacare subsidies and whose documents were “verified” by the exchanges or, in some cases, they didn’t even bother to look.

Turns out, “verified” actually means “the exchange assumes all applicants tell the truth and all documents are authentic unless it is blatantly obvious it’s a fake.” In fact, here is what the GOA says on the matter: CONTINUE READING….

AlietaCare: The Obamacare Alternative Conservatives Have Been Waiting For

By Jordan Rickards ConservativeOpinion.com

Alieta Eck

Alieta Eck

You likely have not heard of Dr. Alieta Eck. Don’t feel bad. She’s not the kind to seek the spotlight. Dr. Eck is a gentle soul, soft spoken, humble, and unassuming. She also has a great heart for charity, and this was undoubtedly the impetus behind her choice to study medicine in the first place, and later to found the Zarephath Health Center (ZHC), a free medical clinic which has provided quality healthcare for the poor and uninsured for over a decade. The ZHC operates out of a 5,000 square foot building (an old schoolhouse that was not being used), the inside of which has been converted into five exam rooms and three intake rooms. It is open four days per week, and is staffed entirely by volunteers.

There is a lot wrong with America today. People like Dr. Eck are what is right.

Obamacare: Big $$$ for NJ Convicts

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Prison FenceAs if you needed another reason to loathe the (Un)affordable Care Act, Save Jerseyans, go ahead and try this one on for size: Hudson County is suing for retroactive reimbursement reflecting the cost of… get ready for it… inmate long-term hospital care.

How? Here’s an explanation of the little-known Obamacare exemption from the Jersey Journal:

Generally, no inmate in state prisons or county jails had been eligible for Medicaid coverage for long-term hospital care until the Affordable Care Act established a “24-hour exemption,” said executive director of the New Jersey Association of Counties John Donnadio.

Obama And Obamacare Are Losers, Poll Says

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

Obama the LiarFor months, we’ve been telling you that Obama is tanking.

For months, we’ve been warning that he really has no coherent foreign policy and that his actions in the face of the crisis in Ukraine were marking him as weak and inept. We also warned that the appointments of Kerry and Hagel were mistakes that would boomerang and that people still had concerns about Benghazi, the domestic spying, IRS harassment of the Tea Party and other matters.

For years, we pointed out that Obamacare was an outrageous overreach and that people did not support such a massive power grab by the federal government.

And now (though not for the first time) the numbers validate what we’ve been saying.

Sabrin Raps “Centipede” Obamacare

Here’s another less-than swell Good Friday Obamacare update, Save Jerseyans:

The American Action Forum, a D.C.-based right-of-center think tank, is out with the results of new study showing that New Jerseyans are getting slammed by (Un)affordable Care Act mandated changes with Garden State senior citizens suffering average benefits reductions of 18.02%. We’ve already seen hundreds of thousands of fellow citizens lose coverage (thus far) and encounter major sticker shock, but the post-enrollment data is no less grizzly despite proponent’s repeated promises.

U.S. Senate hopeful Murray Sabrin, a professor at Ramapo College and one of four candidates competing for the chance to face Cory Booker this November, pounded away on the findings contained in the survey’s release.

Dem Hopefuls Unenrolling from Obamacare

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

runningWith the Obamacare enrollment deadline only hours away, Save Jerseyans, it’s painfully clear to anyone watching that the grand experiment of socialized medicine is failing – in epic fashion – more quickly than even was anticipated by even the most ardent critics of the (Un)affordable Care Act.

Continued technological glitches are the least of it.

Christie Throws Down with Obamacare Booster

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

How successfully Chris Christie can reconcile his decision to accept a massive Medicare expansion with his consistent and vocal opposition to Obamacare (including not one but two state exchange vetoes) could make or break his 2016 GOP primary dreams, Save Jerseyans.

We saw it play out today at a heated South River town hall where the Governor warned agitators and attention-seekers, in vain, to behave:

Lance’s Obamacare Fix Passes House

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Congressman Leonard Lance (R-NJ07) is celebrated passage of H.R. 3685 on Tuesday night, Save Jerseyans, also known as the “Protecting Volunteer Firefighters and Emergency Responders Act,” a measure designed to unshackle first responders from punishing Obamacare mandates:

Obamacare Will Kill 71k+ Jersey Jobs

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Unemployment LineOr should we say 71k+ jobs “liberated”?

That’s what Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) estimates based upon last week’s Congressional Budget Office (CBO) analysis, Save Jerseyans, which concluded that the United States could see 2.5 million fewer jobs by 2024 than it otherwise would’ve without Obamacare.

71,661 to be exact.

Click here to see ATR’s state-by-state breakdown. In case you were wondering, ATR arrived at its numbers by looking at Bureau of Labor Statistics tallies for each states’ respective shares of the total national job market. It’s looking to be a rough decade for New Jersey employees (and employers) considering our state’s cumulative pension woes, tax burdens, constitutionally-mandates minimum wage increases and, of course, a failed experiment in nationalizing 1/5 of the country’s economy.

Sorry. It’s a buzzkill. I know. But hey, don’t get too down. Your ‘liberation’ is at hand…

ObamaCare in Under 5 Minutes

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

We’ve spent countless hours and barrels of digital ink deconstructing the (Un)affordable Care Act, a/k/a “Obamacare” over the past few years, Save Jerseyans, especially in the wake of its disastrous roll out.

We know you’re busy. This video (posted below) summarizes hundreds of posts’ worth of content in under five minutes… h/t Townhall.com:

Lance Fights Obamacare Fire Disaster

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

FirefightersCongressman Leonard Lance (NJ-07) is cosponsoring H.R. 3685, the “Protecting Volunteer Firefighters and Emergency Responders Act,” Save Jerseyans, along with several other House members including Frank Lobiondo (NJ-02) and Jon Runyan (NJ-03).

What’s that? I’m glad you asked! The bill is designed as a “permanent fix” which would exempt our volunteer first responders from the evil side-effects of Obamacare’s individual mandate.

Lance is even coming home next week to drum up support for this much-needed legislative relief…

Make N.J. An “Obamacare Sanctuary State”

Bills I’d Like to See Introduced in 2014, Part 1

By Ed Sheppard | The Save Jersey Blog

The New Jersey State HouseSave Jerseyans, this is the time of year where everyone comes up with lists.

The top whatever of 2013, resolutions/wish lists for 2014, you know the drill. And I’m no exception. I’ve got my own list of bills I’d like to see someone with enough guts to introduce in Trenton. And by someone, I mean a Republican, because I doubt any Democrat would consider any of these bills. So I will be posting one bill a day this week. And today’s wish is…

Make New Jersey an “Obamacare Sanctuary State”

When liberals do not like federal laws, they simply ignore them. They then go a step further and pass state local laws that not only defy those laws, but actively protect those who break them. Agree or disagree on the issue, just look at their tactics on illegal immigration, and tell me I’m wrong. I’m not. So we common sense conservatives need to do the same thing.

And we should start with Obamacare.
