There is an excellent editorial in the Daily Journal this morning. They blast Lou Magazzu and Jane Jannarone for their greed in refusing to immediately relinquish their tax-payer funded health benefits.
About one in five residents of Cumberland County under age 65 don’t have health insurance. Freeholders Louis Magazzu and Jane Jannarone, who represent all of those uninsured people, aren’t among them.
Thanks to your taxes, Magazzu and Jannarone have health insurance coverage. At a time when Magazzu has been championing the need to cut all unnecessary spending at the county level because of a severe county fiscal crisis, he and Jannarone have refused to do their part by giving up the health care benefits that county residents are financing through their hard-earned tax dollars.
