As mentioned in Thursday’s post, the New Jersey Legislature is once again pushing for the implementation of the state health care exchanges under the Affordable Care Act.  The Senate version, S2135, has been introduced, and will be considered by the Commerce Committee October 1.  The Assembly’s bill, A3168, Was also introduced to the Health and Senior Services Committee.  Currently, We have no information concerning a date if and when it will be considered.

Contact Senator Gill, Chair of the Commerce Committee and primary sponsor, at (973) 509-0388 to urge her to withdraw the bill.  Additionally, contact the other committee members (three Democrats and two Republicans) to kill this bill in committee, especially if your Senator happens to be a committee member.  Also contact your own Senators and tell them to oppose this bill if it comes up for another vote in the full Senate.

The Assembly Health and Senior Services Committee must also hear from us.  Contact the committee members and your own representatives in the Assembly.

In addition, Governor Christie needs to hear us loud and clear.  We still don’t want ObamaCare in our state!  Should both bills reach the Governor’s desk again, it must be met with the same actions as last time – a veto.

There are many thanks to go around for the help we have received in the effort to nullify ObamaCare and getting the word out:

Ocean City Citizens for Freedom, the Middlesex County Tea Party and the New Jersey Libertarian Party have all directly promoted our petition to nullify ObamaCare.

Bloggers and contributors to other sites, many of whom we don’t even know, have shared our petition.

Americans for Prosperity New Jersey has provided excellent Action Alerts on this issue and others affecting state, local and individual sovereignty.  While we have not coordinated any efforts with them, we seem to end up on the same side more than a few times.

Assemblywoman Alison Littel-McHose has endured nasty criticism from people all over the political spectrum for introducing nullification legislation, yet has stood firm.  We need more people like her in the legislature.

And you, the activists who have signed petitions, spread the word, contacted officials and done many other things that needed to be done, often with extremely limited resources.  From the New Jersey Tenth Amendment Center, thank you, and keep up the good work.
