Here’s more hard proof via NJ.com, where it’s being reported that 1,800 more Garden State families received cancellation notices last week:
The Affordable Care Act — the federal law that mandates everyone have insurance — effectively killed FamilyCare Advantage, a low-cost option for kids in New Jersey created six years ago for parents who earned too much to qualify for Medicaid and other subsidized programs but too little to buy on a policy on their own. The state program was the first of its kind in the nation.
With 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.
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.
U.S. Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04) rallied thousands of intrepid Pro-Life Americans on Wednesday, Save Jerseyans, bundled in large groups at the annual ‘March for Life’ which this year coincides with the 41st anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision.
Here’s the full text of his remarks:
Thank you for joining this extraordinary March—a magnificent celebration of God’s gift of life and a recommitment to defending and protecting women and children from the violence of abortion.
The Annual Rally for Life sponsored by New Jersey Right to Life is scheduled for Wednesday, January 22nd in Trenton from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Participants will meet on the State House Steps (125 West State Street for those of you using GPS).
Congressman 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…
Save 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.
We already knew they’d do whatever it takes to save this mess of a law including tell us we could keep our plans when, in fact, we couldn’t.
Then again, Frank might “prejudge the type of ads” that he’s spending our money to broadcast if he wasn’t also one of the legislation’s architects; if it fails, then there isn’t much else to be said for his time in Congress.
