Mark Zinna unveiled a comprehensive single-payer health care plan that he calls’New Jersey Cares’ (NJC), making him the only gubernatorial candidate who claims to support universal single-payer health care to release a comprehensive single-payer plan.
“We have the resources necessary to give all New Jerseyans the health care they need,” Zinna says. “The profit-motive does not belong in health care. Healthcare is a human right and a state and nation as wealthy as our own should bend over backwards to provide decent healthcare to all of its people.”
NJC promises to solve a host of issues including:
(1) rising premiums, co-payments, and deductibles
(2) Spartan healthcare rationing
(3) Health insurance costs that small business cannot keep up with
(4) The Republican threat to the Affordable Care Act
NJC will cover all New Jerseyans; increase access to women’s health services; and help patients get the care they need when they need it, Zinna said.
The candidate explained that New Jersey Cares will cover all New Jerseyans, and all residents will contribute based upon their ability to pay.
Assemblyman John Wisniewski, a former chairman of the state Democratic Committee who helped Bernie Sanders last year, has tried to claim the progressive senator’s base of support but critics have exposed his so-called plea for universal health care a sham
“John Wisniewski is no Bernie Sanders,” said Democratic strategist James Devine. “Wisniewski accepted $66,000 from for-profit hospitals around the same time he sponsored legislation that would have exempted them from caps on fees paid by auto insurance.”
The Assemblyman never proposed legislation to bring single payer health care to New Jersey and his campaign rhetoric on the subject amounts to little more than copycatting things said by Bernie Sanders last year.
