N.J. Taxpayers, public workers stuck with high cost healthcare plans

Committee creating new health plans for N.J. public workers misses deadline | NJ.com.

Both the governor and senator Sweeney had promised to create cheaper options which would reduce the cost to both taxpayers and employees.

They haven’t delivered. The government is efficient at stem-rolling the bargaining rights of workers but when it comes to genuine reforms, it is either lethargic or blatantly indifferent.

Let’s not forget that the adoption of cheaper plans could cut into the profits of the insurance giants who in turn are major political contributors to both parties.
