Rep. Pascrell Observes the First Anniversay of the Affordable Care Act Passing the U.S. House of Representatives By Citing Benefits to New Jersey

To mark the one year that has passed since the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Affordable Care Act, also known as health care reform, U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-8) cited the benefits the legislation has brought to his home state of New Jersey.

"I voted for the historic health care reform bill because I knew it would make a concrete difference in people's lives. One year later, it is clear--seniors are saving money on their prescription drugs, insurance companies are being stopped from unreasonably dropping a family's health coverage, small businesses are getting tax credits to help pay for health care costs, and uninsured individuals in need of affordable care during this economic recovery can better access their community health centers." said Pascrell, a member of the Ways and Means Committee who authored key provisions of the legislation. "Today, we see the benefits of the Affordable Care Act coming home to New Jersey. While the benefits we have seen so far pale in comparison to the benefits that will come when the Affordable Care Act goes into full effect, the fact is that this federal bill will improve the health of many New Jersey residents."
