Plan to extend medical aid hits New Jersey bump

AP/Philadelphia Inquirer, April 7, 2008

The audits found wealthy people enrolled in health programs for the poor, paltry oversight of healthcare programs, and wasteful spending. "If the state can't handle a small health-insurance program, then what confidence can anyone have that it will do a better job when it tries to cover everyone in New Jersey?" asked New Jersey Assemblyman Richard Merkt.
