Congressman Pallone And Sen. Buono Urge Christie To Accept Medicaid Funding Now

Today, State Senator Barbara Buono and Congressman Frank Pallone demanded action from Governor Christie on New Jersey’s Medicaid funding. Two weeks ago, Senator Buono called upon Governor Christie to accept federal funding for Medicaid expansion. Yesterday, the Star-Ledger urged Governor Christie to stop dawdling and to accept Medicaid funding. As the Star-Ledger points out in their editorial, the economic benefits depend on getting as many uninsured people enrolled in the program as possible and time is running out.


“At this point, 300,000 New Jerseyans are waiting for health care. Governor Christie’s hemming and hawing on the issue does not serve the people of New Jersey, although it might serve his political ambitions. The longer the Governor waits, the less time we will have to expand our Medicaid program effectively. This is yet another example of Governor Christie leaving our most vulnerable populations hanging in the balance while only furthering our economic troubles,” said Senator Buono.
“Expanding Medicaid in New Jersey is a no-brainer! By turning away billions of dollars in federal money the governor would be making a move that is bad for New Jersey families and bad for New Jersey's economy,” said Congressman Frank Pallone.
Every single county in New Jersey would receive millions of dollars in federal funding to insure their most vulnerable populations. With nearly $2 billion a year on the line, it simply does not make sense to delay the implementation of this program.
In addition, as the uninsured are concentrated in low-income communities, these areas would see new jobs dedicated to serving the newly insured
