New Jersey Citizen Action Calls Tom MacArthur On His Lies During Debate

Insider NJ — October 31, 2018

Press Release

Highland Park-New Jersey Citizen Action released the following statement today in response to the televised New Jersey 3rd Congressional District debate between Republican Congressman Tom MacArthur (NJ-3rd) and Democrat Andy Kim.

"Tom MacArthur told the same lies during the debate that he's been telling on the campaign trail,' said New Jersey Citizen Action program director Ann Vardeman. "His attempt to repeal to Affordable Care Act wouldn't have improved healthcare; it would have deprived 23 million people of coverage and stripped 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions of their protection under the law. And the tax breaks he voted for benefit the wealthy and big corporations, not working and middle-class families, while double-taxing New Jerseyans and threatening Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Tom MacArthur spent the debate attacking Andy Kim and lying about his record because he knows he can't run on the truth. The truth is Tom MacArthur has been bad for New Jersey and bad for our country."
