“New Jersey was a once a leader on health care reform. We need a governor who puts the health of the 9 million residents of our state ahead of his political agenda.”
Access to health care is a basic right – one that is under assault by Donald Trump and Republicans in Washington and the special interests that support them. New Jersey is no exception. For too long we have let special interests like for-profit hospitals outweigh the interests of 9 million residents. As governor, Phil will end that.
New Jersey has been a national leader on healthcare in the past and Phil will make sure we lead once again. This starts with standing up to Donald Trump and the right-wing agenda to repeal the ACA and gut Medicaid and Medicare, which would cause nearly 800,000 people in NJ to lose coverage.
Phil will also take the lead on health reform at the state level by:
- Lowering insurance premiums by reining in excessive out-of-network costs;
- Restoring state funding to Planned Parenthood and ensuring that all-FDA approved methods of contraception remain accessible to New Jersey women with no out-of-pocket costs;
- Working to identify the state’s 75,000 uninsured children and enrolling them in health coverage; and
- Expanding access to addiction treatment and services.
