Let Freedom Ring Must Reads
Statement by Colin Hanna, President of Let Freedom Ring USA, Inc. in response to NJ Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno’s opposition to Governor Christie’s attempted raid of Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey.
Kim Guadagno is right. Stop Christie’s ‘Last Minute’ Healthcare Raid!
“Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno’s statement opposing Governor Chris Christie’s outrageous healthcare money grab is right on target. Fighting the serious epidemic of opioid addiction requires the help and cooperation of many partners on multiple fronts. So, why is the Governor is attempting to raid the reserves of a single not-for-profit company that isn’t even responsible for the root cause of the drug problem? Christie’s position is as mystifying as it is absurd. Why isn’t Christie going after the companies that market prescription pain pills so aggressively to doctors? Why is only one New Jersey healthcare company being targeted for what amounts to extortion by the Governor? Christie’s plan is counterproductive. It will unleash fiscal havoc by imposing punitive taxes on New Jersey consumers and patients. I hope Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto will continue working to stop this obscene abuse of gubernatorial power.”
