New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) Approves Medicaid Expansion Under ObamaCare

by Colonel on February 26, 2013

“New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has concluded that accepting the expanded Medicaid portion of the Affordable Care Act for New Jersey is, in the Governor’s words, “the smart thing to do for our fiscal and public health.”

Christie becomes the latest Republican governor, following on the heels of Florida GOP Governor Rick Scott, to set aside the Republican anti-Obamacare agenda, no matter who gets hurt, and do what is in the best interest of his state.

In making his announcement, Christie added— “Accepting these federal resources will provide health insurance to tens of thousand of low-income New Jerseyans, help keep our hospitals financially healthy and actually save money for New Jersey taxpayers.”

With the expanded benefits, Medicaid will now be provided to 300,000 currently uninsured New Jersey residents.
