Murphy's Latest Order Will Worsen Covid Crisis!

New Jersey Stater Senator Declan O’Scanlon challenged the wisdom of Governor Murphy for his executive order today requiring health care workers to be boosted in addition to fully vaccinated, warning the move could backfire.

“If some is good, more must be better … isn’t a way to make public health policy,” said O’Scanlon (R-13). “The Governor’s announcement will have a net negative impact on public health in many facilities already struggling with staff shortages, especially now that our case and hospital admission rates are plummeting. In many systems residents/patients face a more severe health threat from staff shortages than from exposure to doctors or nurses who have not yet been boosted. With case rates plummeting the fear of health workers themselves being out sick is waning as well.”

The announcement by the Governor today requires health care workers and those in high-risk settings like nursing homes and correctional facilities to get vaccinated. They will no longer be able to test out as an alternative to the shots and boosters.

“We already have a healthcare worker shortage. Not having anyone to care for sick patients is much worse than the nominal risk of being exposed to someone who isn’t up to date with their shots,” O’Scanlon said.  “To the fair argument that in some systems with very high vaccination rates this move might not prompt more workers to leave but might reduce instances when employees are out with severe illness, I say fine, let those systems dictate their own policy and manage it. One-size-fits-all simply doesn’t work.

“Every week I hear from hospital and healthcare industry folks, and they are terrified of the consequences of the existing staff shortages. This one-size-fits-all mandate could easily have a net negative public health impact overall.  These are dice government shouldn’t be rolling. These decisions should be up to the health care systems themselves.

“In addition, as we now know vaccinated people can and are spreading the Omicron strain, eliminating testing might itself be a net negative on the likelihood of increasing transmission,” O’Scanlon added.

Under Murphy’s Executive Order No. 283, unvaccinated health workers have until Jan. 27 to get their first shot and they must be fully vaccinated by Feb. 28.

Workers in congregate settings must have started the process by Feb. 16 and complete it by March 30.

“I am a big believer in vaccines and the value of the booster shots for most people, though for younger residents the benefit of the booster is questionable at best,” said O’Scanlon. “But, regardless of where one stands on vaccine efficacy, this step doesn’t make any sense. If we’re concerned about the number of hospitalizations and the care of patients, we must consider the availability of staff to care for them.

“We haven’t heard of many instances where unvaccinated health care workers have triggered outbreaks in patients. With our case rates plummeting it’s much harder to argue that this move will prevent health care workers from being out sick themselves. Given these facts, this mandate is unnecessary and could indeed be counterproductive” O’Scanlon concluded.

Life Lessons: Remembering André Leon Talley

Watch the video below with the great André Leon Talley whose passing was just announced. Talley is asked about the barriers he may have faced as a Black man in the world of fashion during his career. Listen closely to his answer. It's very revealing and young people could learn an awful lot from it right now. We say they could learn, if they bothered to pay attention! Then, watch the second video clip with an effervescent overview of the World of Talley. What great things this fashion icon accomplished -- and all because he believed in himself and, every step of the way, absolutely refused to be deterred.

Poll: Most Rate Biden 'VERY UNSUCCESSFUL'

Joe Biden’s first year in office has been a failure, according to a majority of voters who say the Democrat has left the country more divided than when he was inaugurated.

A new national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports finds that just 12% of likely U.S. voters rate Biden’s first year in office very successful, while another 26% say his first year as president has been somewhat successful. Ten percent (10%) believe Biden has been somewhat unsuccessful during his first year in office, while 50% rate his first year very unsuccessful. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

No New Taxes? Murphy Pledge Is Bogus!

New Jersey State Senator Michael Testa today chided Governor Murphy for his often repeated “no new taxes” statements.

Sen. Michael Testa today chided Governor Murphy for his often repeated “no new taxes” statements, calling the promise laughable in light of the facts. (Pixabay)

“Starting during his reelection campaign and for the past several months, the Governor has insisted he is done with tax increases. It’s a laughable promise he repeated just days ago in his State of the State address,” said Testa (R-1).

Here are some facts:

  • The tax on employers based on their payroll increased 20 percent and was collected (Oct. 30) just days before the Governor’s reelection.
  • The employee payroll tax – taken out of paycheck of every salaried employees – increased by 10 percent on Jan. 1, 2022.
  • Despite their real buying power being less than what is once was, tens of thousands of New Jerseyans were pulled into higher income tax brackets (something called “bracket creep”) because of skyrocketing inflation on Jan. 1, 2022.
  • Tolls (a different word for tax) assessed against commuters and delivery people increased yet again on Jan. 1, 2022

“He was claiming to be done with higher taxes, but Murphy was literally grabbing more taxpayer money while mouthing these promises,” said Testa. “It is hard to believe he can still say it with a straight face.”

And the tax parade is just getting started:

  • A tax increase is scheduled on employer payroll later this year.
  • Another tax increase on employer payroll is scheduled for next year.
  • A $600 million tax increase is scheduled for the near future on Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield.

“Is the Governor done with tax increases? Clearly, he is not,” Testa said. “Murphy is testing the old saying, ‘Tell a lie often enough and people will believe it.’

“New Jersey residents deserve better. If Murphy is going to reach for the taxpayer wallet, he should be honest enough to come out and say it,” Testa said.

Murphy:$$$$ For Hollywood; ZERO For Main St.

New Jersey State Senator Joe Pennacchio issued the following statement today regarding higher taxes being imposed by Governor Murphy while vetoing legislation that would have provided needed relief to Main Street businesses:

“With the same breath, the Governor vetoed a major tax relief bill (A-4958/S-3740) for Main Street businesses that passed both houses with unanimous bipartisan support and signed an indefensible bill (S-4094/A-6070) giving a plum tax break to Hollywood billionaires who share his left-wing philosophies.

“The Main Street bill would have provided desperately needed help for small businesses that sustained massive cost increases to stay afloat during COVID 19 and the Governor’s restrictions. That measure died on Murphy’s desk, but one wasting millions on out-of-touch movie makers was signed.

“Dishing out big bucks to the Hollywood elite may be sexy and applauded by the entertainment world, but it’s a slap in the face to the one-third of businesses that closed their doors during this pandemic. These are Murphy’s twisted priorities.

“New Jersey taxpayers deserve more from our Governor, who claims to be ‘done with tax increases,’ but can’t break himself of the old habit.” 

Well, The Thought Has Occurred To Us . . .


 

Survey: Businesses Should Stick To Business

A new Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 45% of likely U.S. voters believe the highest priority for businesses should be providing individual consumers with high quality products and services at the lowest prices. 

Another 23% think businesses should prioritize providing good benefits and pay to employees, and 14% say earning a profit to benefit shareholders or owners should be the top priority. Only nine percent (9%) of voters think trying to stop climate change should be the top priority for business, and a mere one percent (1%) think using business resources to pursue social justice causes should be a top priority.
