Assemblyman John Wisniewski (D-Sayreville) responded to the New York State Assembly passing a single payer health care bill.
“Access to affordable health care is a right whose time has come. A single-payer healthcare system for New Jersey is the long-term solution to provide for our state’s health and economic future. The New York legislation is an example of what we can do in New Jersey.
“Once finalized, New York will have a competitive advantage over New Jersey. New Jersey must move quickly to adopt a single payer system. We will see both residents and businesses be drawn to states with single payer systems to take advantage of lower health care costs.”
