To say that our nation is in a Democrat induced crisis is an understatement. The House is focused on impeaching President Trump because they know they cannot beat him at the polls in 2020. Healthcare costs continue to skyrocket thanks to the Affordable Care Act. We continue to have an emergency at our southern border. America is in an opioid crisis. Our nation is in a moral decline. Americans are divided more than ever before thanks to radical Liberalism. President Trump is working hard for America despite having to fight for the future of our nation as Democrats hold impeachment hearings. Our economy and job market are breaking records. America has it’s testicular fortitude back on the world stage. But what is U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D, NJ) focused on?

Rather than admitting that the Affordable Care Act (known as Obamacare) as been an abysmal failure as so many elected officials, employers and health insurance subscribers across the county have Governor Murphy continues to double double down. He announced in March that New Jersey will move to a state-based healthcare exchange beginning in 2021. Murphy claims the move is to protect New Jerseyans from the “sabotage” of Obamacare by President Trump and Republicans in Congress. What Murphy is really doing is putting politics before the health and lives of New Jerseyans and further ensuring that healthcare is unaffordable.

The New Jersey Council on Local Mandates as ruled that the state’s automatic vote by mail law, passed by the Democratic lead legislature, is an unconstitutional unfunded mandate. Before the 2018 law voters had to request a vote by mail ballot for each election. The new law required County Clerks to automatically issue vote by mail ballots to registered voters who previously requested them. The New Jersey Association of Counties to filed the complaint with the Council on Local Mandates insisting the law violates the state constitution’s prohibition on unfunded mandates because of the expenses to process, print and mail the additional mail in ballots. The Council ruled that the law’s requirements should “cease to be mandatory in their effect and shall forthwith expire.”

Press Release from the NJGOP
Trenton, NJ – The fix is in! Governor Murphy and legislative Democrats are fast-tracking a law that will upend the lives of hundreds of thousands of New Jersey businesses and families The law prevents independent contractors from working for businesses unless the contractor is hired as an official employee of the business. The move will generate millions in new taxes, proving it’s just another Democratic tax grab at the expense of New Jersey’s hard working families. (NOTE: The Informed Conservative published an article on this last week. Read the article HERE).
Apparently New Jersey being rated one of the worst business climates and thousands of businesses, jobs and residents leaving the sate is not good enough for Governor Murphy, State Senate President Sweeney (D, Gloucester) and other legislative Democrats. State Senate Bill 4204, sponsored by Sweeney, would end businesses using independent contractors. The law will have a negative impact on companies that use project based professional contract consultants or freelancers. Should this bill pass companies will no longer be able to work with professional contract consultants meaning that projects will leave New Jersey and jobs and tax revenues will leave the state. It’s a lose/lose for New Jersey businesses, a lose/lose for professional contractors and those who work in the “gig economy” and a lose/lose for the State of New Jersey.
New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal released the LGBT Equality Directive instructing the state’s 38,000 law enforcement officers on how to deal with the LGTB community.

Wouldn’t you or I be arrested for giving police a false name or information?
