Wowkanech: Governor is sabotaging his own reforms for political gain

New Jersey State AFL-CIO President Charles Wowkanech today rebutted the governor’s assertions made during last night's "Ask the Governor" program regarding health care costs for retired public workers:

“The governor is sabotaging his own reforms for political gain. If he simply allows the reforms already in place to work, this so-called ‘crisis’ will also recede. Future retirees will be required pay a share of their health premiums. The governor knew these facts and the numbers when he signed that law. Just as the administration cannot be changing actuarial assumptions mid-game to fit their budgets, they also can’t be changing health policy for retirees mid-game to fit their politics.”
