Letter to the Editor: Children remain uncovered by sufficient health insurance

Recently Assemblywoman Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-Ewing) applauded the Corzine administration and congratulated herself for the increased number of New Jersey children now covered by health insurance.

Children’s health and access to quality affordable health care are issues of paramount concern to me, and the absence of access to health care greatly affects a notable segment of the population here in our district.

With the unemployment rate now increased to 9.7 percent, families continue to suffer the failed leadership of Gov. Corzine and Bonnie Watson Coleman and Reed Gusciora.

This week over 30,000 unemployed New Jerseyans faced losing their unemployment benefits, a significant portion of whom have children. So I ask, what about the children? Who’s standing for them? It’s time to set a new direction, put unemployed New Jerseyans back to work, and ensure an appropriate quality of life for all children.
