New Jersey’s Democratic governor announced Friday that the state will start running its own ObamaCare marketplace in 2021, rather than letting the federal government operate it.
Gov. Phil Murphy characterized the move as a way for New Jersey to take more control of how the Affordable Care Act (ACA) operates in the state.
The article says that New Jersey will become the 12th state to run its own “Obamacare” marketplace, and goes on to state the following:
“Together with the Legislature, we have the ability to further protect New Jersey from actions taken by the Trump Administration to roll back the hard-fought protections afforded by the ACA and I would argue we have an obligation to do so,” Murphy said in a statement.
Affordable health care is a basic right.
Tomorrow is the ninth anniversary of the Affordable Care Act.
