Leonard Lance: ‘Certainly, We Need To Do a Better Job Regarding Health Care in This Country’

‘We need to do a better job regarding health care in this country’


LANCE: "There are residents in the congressional district I serve, roughly 20,000, I believe, who had expanded health care coverage based upon Medicaid. New Jersey was one of I think 31 states to expand Medicaid. But I also hope, Willie, that Democrats will come to the table. I know Congressman Ryan earlier said that none of us wants to work with Democrats. I want to work in a bipartisan capacity on this bill because I think the exchanges are not in good shape. We in New Jersey originally had five insurers for the exchange. We’re now down to two. So, certainly, we need to do a better job regarding health care in this country."
