Lance, LoBiondo, Smith To Vote No on Healthcare Bill; MacArthur in Favor

Despite an Oval Office meeting with President Trump, Rep. Leonard Lance remains a “no” vote on the American Care Act.  As Insider NJ reported, Lance faced an angry crowd at a Branchburg town hall last month, the majority of whom urged the congressman to oppose the bill.

Also joining in opposition is Rep. Frank LoBiondo, who in statement today said, “unfortunately, the changes outlined do not go far enough to address key and vital issues I have on the bill’s impact on residents and businesses in South Jersey.

Simply put, this bill does not meet the standards of what was promised; it is not as good as or better than what we currently have. Accordingly, I will vote no on this healthcare plan.”

Late in the day, Chris Smith also announced he would be voting no.

Congressman Tom MacArthur, like Lance, also held a town hall (read Insider NJ’s coverage here) earlier this month, but plans to vote yes tomorrow when the bill is slated to be voted on by Congress – as it happens, the seventh anniversary of the signing of the Affordable Care Act by President Obama in 2010.
