Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman Statement on GOP’s America Health Care Act

New Jersey Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman Credits: United States Congress

WASHINGTON, DC - The CBO report confirms that the reality of the GOP’s health care plan does not match their rhetoric. Instead of expanding access, their plan would cost 24 million Americans their health insurance and - contrary to the President’s promise - cut $880 billion from Medicaid. My Republican colleagues have chosen to reduce the deficit on the backs of the poor and older Americans while lining the pockets of the wealthy. These men and women are sent to Washington to advocate and protect the citizens they represent and have turned out to be their biggest threat. At its core this proposal is a matter of life and death and I hope the CBO's findings will help my colleagues see the light and reject this dangerous proposal.

Time is Not on the Side of New Jersey Residents Struggling with Addiction

July 7, 2017

Dear Editor:

This past January, I was encouraged that after seven years in office Governor Christie announced a plan to address New Jersey’s opioid/heroin epidemic. However, over the last six months, my encouragement dissolved into disappointment due to what I believe is a lack of tangibility, organization, and his overdue response regarding the implementation of a program.

I ...

Column: At Rutgers, Will the Right Stand Up for What is Right?

July 7, 2017
