White House Health Care 2.0 – More of the Same

The President said he hoped the so-called “health care summit” would be an open and frank discussion on how to improve the health care system. Instead, the President, Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid dominated nearly four hours of the six hours with a ‘filibuster’ of the same arguments that the clear majority of Americans have already rejected.

Yet, with no official bill for the American people and their representatives to actually examine, Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid are preparing to short-circuit the legislative process, using the so-called “reconciliation” process to ram their bill through Congress and right onto the President desk. Not a good prescription for promoting consumer confidence in the midst of a recession!

NJECPAC Supports Governor's Plan to To Prevent $1 Billion Payroll Tax Hike

The NJECPAC strongly supports Governor Chris Christie’s plan to provide relief to employers by phasing in the tax increase over three years.
New Jersey’s Unemployment Insurance Fund is effectively bankrupt, paying out more in unemployment benefits than it collects in payroll taxes. If nothing is done, NJ employers will be hit with a $1 billion tax increase to replenish the fund. That would cost an average of $400 per employee and up to $683 per employee, according to the Governor.
The Governor held a news conference to unveil his plan to avoid the $1 billion tax increase and his proposal to return the State’s bankrupt Unemployment Insurance Fund to solvency.

Claim That Republicans Have No Ideas Rebuked

Claim That Republicans Have No Ideas Rebuked
On Saturday, October 31, 2009, House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) discussed Republicans’ plan for common-sense health care reform our nation can afford.  The address emphasized four common-sense reforms that will lower health care costs and expand access to quality care without a government takeover of our nation’s health care system that kills jobs, raises taxes on small businesses, or cuts Medicare for seniors:
  • Number one: let families and businesses buy health insurance across state lines.
  • Number two: allow individuals, small businesses, and trade associations to pool together and acquire health insurance at lower prices, the same way large corporations and labor unions do.
  • Number three: give states the tools to create their own innovative reforms that lower health care costs.
  • Number four: end junk lawsuits that contribute to higher health care costs by increasing the number of tests and procedures that physicians sometimes order not because they think it's good medicine, but because they are afraid of being sued.
