This Assembly Resolution urges the United States Congress to repeal the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,” also known as “Obamacare.” On January 1, 2014, many of the most significant provisions of Obamacare, including the individual and employer mandates, are scheduled to take effect. These provisions are also some of the most unpopular and most potentially damaging, as shown by public opinion polls and statements by employers and union leaders. The law will undermine employment by encouraging employers to reduce workers’ hours, and will weaken worker benefits by incentivizing employers to shift employees to the health insurance exchanges. Obamacare will also make health insurance more expensive for at least 100,000 New Jersey residents who currently have “basic and essential” coverage, which is being eliminated as a consequence of the law.
