Phil Murphy on Health Care

 

 


We're protecting the Affordable Care Act

Fight for-profit right-wing agenda to gut ObamaCare

This starts with standing up to Donald Trump and the right-wing agenda to repeal the ACA and gut Medicaid and Medicare, which would cause nearly 800,000 people in NJ to lose coverage. Phil will also take the lead on health reform at the state level by:
