Our Governor's Harmful Policies / Cuts/ Tax Plans - I mean Scams [View all]

Since we seem to have the most 'popular' governor (even more so than Walker) to be discussed at DU - perhaps we can start a thread about the Policies being implemented to harm New Jerseyans. A running list if you will. Not about things he's said that the media reports on to increase ratings and advertisers - but the policies implemented by way of his bullying tactics.

I'll start - July 2011 Budget Cuts he wanted . . .

Family Planning Services: $7.5 million;


AIDS Drug Distribution Program: $7 million;

Nursing Homes: $25 million;

Special Care Nursing Facilities: $4.4 million;

Mental Health Services Salaries and Wages: $9 million;

Mental Health and Addiction Services Community Care: $8 million;

Medical Prescription (dual eligibles): $13 million;

Keep Aged, Blind and Disabled out of managed care: $11 million;

Services to Blind and Visually Impaired: $1.5 million;

WorkFirstNJ Child Care: $6 million;



**********************************************************************

Maybe this way when he calls people names - folks at DU can see we much bigger issues to contend with than outrage over name calling by the Tea Party Favorite.
