Gordon Sponsors Attempts To Override Christie Budget Vetoes

Senate Democrats unsuccessful in attempts to restore governor's cuts.

Following Governor Chris Christie’s line-item veto of various portions of the state’s $30.6-billion budget, the State Senate met last week to try to override the governor’s cuts. All override votes failed to pass, as Senate Democrats could only muster 24 of the 27 votes needed. Below is a list of overrides, and how your representative, Senator Robert M. Gordon, voted. All state legislation and how your representatives voted can be accessed via the NJ State Legislature’s website.

You guys should stop complaining because, one the health care we have now isnt as good as it was supposed to be. also the law has just been signed so give it some time. so if u want to say u have the right to choose tell that to ur congress men or state official. If you do not have insurance and need one You can find full medical coverage at the lowest price search online for "Penny Health" If you have health insurance and do not care about cost just be happy about it and trust me you are not going to loose anything!
