Payne, Jr. Highlights New Report Showing ACA Repeal Would Result in New Jersey Losing 86,400 Jobs in 2019 Alone

Jan 6, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Donald M. Payne, Jr. (NJ-10) announced that a new report, prepared by the nonpartisan Commonwealth Fund and George Washington University’s Milken Institute School of Public Health, finds that New Jersey would lose 86,400 jobs and the nation overall would lose a total of 2.6 million jobs in 2019 alone as a result of the Republicans’ repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

“Not only would the Republican plan to repeal the ACA without a replacement Make America Sick Again by stripping more than 20 million Americans of health care coverage, it would cost New Jersey tens of thousands of jobs and have devastating consequences on the economy. If Republicans have their way, hard-working New Jersey families, and families across the country, will suffer.”
