I am responding to the stupidity of the statement in point 4 stupid.

The article said: "58 percent of New Jersey residents don't have health insurance, includingRead More more than half of the seniors in the state." Seniors 65 and older are covered by Medicare but seniors just below age 65 (ages 59? through 64?) would not be covered by Medicare. The article is not clear on this point, we have to guess. What about the ACA, wouldn't they qualify for that?

If they were without Medicare (under 65) they would have to buy insurance or be fined (JusticeRead More Roberts called it a tax) but we all know people aren't buying insurance anyway. Where those 60-64 stand in terms of insurance I don't know but they are a small portion (30%)of seniors (all those 60+). Which would essentially mean all of them plus 12 million more had no insurance (These are U.S. figures) in order to have over half of seniors have no insurance. Hope this is not too confusing.

Let's not jump to conclusions here. Best to let all the facts come out first.

Brian, Absolutely correct. That being said, however, it's walking and quacking like a duck NOW.

Looks like the evidence is mounting. "Emails and interviews make clear that theRead More development-wary mayor was coming under increasing and repeated pressure from politically connected lawyers working for Rockefeller Group and from the Christie administration." http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/30/nyregion/powerful-allies-pushed-a-project-in-new-jersey.html?hp
