  1. And how will this affect the 3.8 million people in NJ who have medical inurance under Horizon?

    The media goes on and on for days about Christie using a private beach, but not a word to tell us about how our already crappy medical insurance will be further degraded?!

    Thanks for nothing, incompetent media!
