Despite what the Republicans say and do here are the facts.
This is important to me and the state of New Jersey because:
I stand for the hundreds of New Jerseyans with pre-existing conditions who will now gain coverage, thanks to the Affordable Care Act.
I stand for the 73,000 young adults in New Jersey who were able to remain on their parents’ health insurance plans because of the Affordable Care Act.
Seniors in New Jersey have collectively experienced a $370.4 million savings in prescription drug cost due to the Affordable Care Act’s efforts to close the Medicare “donut hole.
More than $10 million has been given back to New Jerseyans through insurance company refunds, and 2.2 million New Jerseyans with private health insurance can now receive preventative services at no extra cost.
Finally, I stand for the millions of New Jerseyans who will now be able to get the care that they need, when they need it. Learn how you can get covered by going to www.Healthcare.gov. And if you need help, find out who your local health care navigators are by going to www.localhelp.healthcare.gov.
Thanks for your support
