Broad, Bipartisan Coalition Thanks Governor Christie for Standing Up for Homeowners by Banning Fees
Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) took swift action last week to protect New Jersey homeowners by signing A. 2861 to restrict Wall Street Home Resale Fees (also known as “private transfer fees”). The new law places a ban on these fees, a dangerous new financial scheme that steals home equity, lowers home resale values and adds another layer of difficulty to selling a home.

Dr. Steve Elias and Family
Englewood, New Jersey (December 13, 2010) - When asked how he would like his family’s donation acknowledged, Dr. Steve Elias, director of the Center for Vein Disease, chose a seemingly humble marker, but one that will mean a lot to many individuals in the years to come. “I wanted to sponsor an outdoor bench at the front entrance to The Kaplen Pavilion where patients and families could rest, get some fresh air or wait for a ride. A bench in the sun is my utopia,” said Dr. Elias.

A key selling point in “healthcare reform” is a new kind of research—a kind that will supposedly make medicine more efficient and less costly, unlike the old kind of research that brought us medical miracles. You should care about it, because you will be a subject (or “guinea pig” as some prefer to say), without your consent. And of course you will be paying for it, at a time when so many Americans can’t pay their rent.
