Wisniewski: NY single payer bill is competitive advantage over NJ
— 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.”
John Wisniewski has served in the New Jersey General Assembly since 1995. As Chairman of the Transportation Committee, Wisniewski led the fight against former Governor Jon Corzine’s attempt to privatize and sell the New Jersey Turnpike and first exposed Governor Christie’s “Bridgegate” scandal. He is the former New Jersey State Democratic Party Chair and recently chaired U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential effort in the Garden State. Born and raised in Sayreville, Assemblyman Wisniewski is an attorney and small business owner in his hometown.
