Lame Duck Alert: Two Bad Bills On Tap

December 14, 2011 J

***Lame Duck Alert: Two Bad Bills on Tap in State Legislature!***

CLICK HERE to find the contact information for your state senator in Trenton and tell them to vote ‘NO’ on the following bills:

Bad Bill #1: A4373/S3118

The last thing New Jersey needs is to squander hundreds of millions more of your tax dollars in poorly run cities like Newark and Camden. But that’s exactly what the state Legislature is poised to do with this bill that would send a whopping $140.5 MILLION in so-called Transitional Aid to these urban cesspools of waste and corruption!

Last week this measure passed the Assembly by a vote of 66-12. Now the bill will be making its way to the state Senate.

Once again, CLICK HERE to contact your state senator and tell them to vote ‘NO’ On Bill A4373/S3118!

Tell them to stop wasting your hard-earned money to bail out places like Newark and Camden!

Bad Bill #2: S2643

Did you know that New Jersey already has an Obama-style “public option” health insurance plan? It’s called “FamilyCare”. NJ FamilyCare covers children under the age of 18 up to 350% of the federal poverty level. For a family of fur that equates to $77,184 a year!

Now the state Legislature is proposing a bill to spend another $1 MILLION for an “enhanced outreach and enrollment initiative intended to increase the number of children covered by the Medicaid, NJ FamilyCare and NJ FamilyCare Advantage programs.”

New Jersey should not be looking to add more people to the welfare rolls, let alone middle class people. We should be looking to decrease the number of people dependent on government.

Bill S2643 will be taken up of the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee on Thursday!

Contact the senators on the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee and Tell Them to Vote ‘NO’ On Bill S2643!
