It’s Veterans Day, Save Jerseyans, so our friend Tom MacArthur (R, NJ-03) and NJ 101.5’s Bill Spadea got together on the radio this morning to talk about some of what the freshman Congressman is doing to help New Jersey veterans including his first bill to pass the House – H.R. 22: “Hire More Heroes Act” – incentivizing small businesses to hire veterans by making it so hiring veterans who already have health care don’t count towards the notorious ACA small business 50 full-time employee benchmark.
