State Senator and Candidate for U.S. Senate Joe Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) continued his statewide jobs tour today with a stop at Spring Hills Senior Communities in Cherry Hill.
Senator Kyrillos was greeted in Cherry Hill by Alex Markowits, Spring Hills President and CEO. The Senator then met privately with Mr. Markowits, and members of the Spring Hills Management team to discuss the challenges they face as part of the healthcare industry. He then toured the facility to meet the employees and discuss the business from their perspective.
"The healthcare industry is one of the most difficult right now," said Senator Kyrillos. "The Supreme Court is set to make a decision very soon about the constitutionality of the Obamacare mandate and there has been nothing but uncertainty since the President's healthcare proposal was adopted.
"Businesses are unsure of the financial burden the new healthcare law will put on them, and the healthcare field is unsure how their services will be supported with such monumental changes to how health insurance is administered.
"As I travel the state, and talk to more business owners and employees, my thoughts on the changes that need to be instituted in Washington continue to be reinforced. We must right-size government, cut our spending, flatten and simplify our tax code, and incentivize business growth and investment."
This was the third stop for Senator Kyrillos on his statewide jobs tour. His next stop is scheduled for Friday in Ocean County. At the conclusion of the tour, the Senator will use the information he gathered from meeting business owners, their management, and their employees, and create a comprehensive Jobs Plan designed to spur business growth and foster economic opportunity.
Spring Hills Senior Communities was started in 1999 by nursing home administrator Alex Markowits. The company now has ten locations nationwide including three others in New Jersey in Edison, Morristown, and Somerset.
