The Press of Atlantic City had yet another disturbing article about Cumberland County.
The high level of unemployment in Atlantic, Cape May and Cumberland counties has resulted in equally high numbers of the uninsured, the latest Census data show.
And the number of uninsured in South Jersey is only driven higher by the amount of part-time and seasonal jobs, without benefits, that are common at the shore. Meanwhile, the rate of uninsured children is just as bleak.
The article is about the correlation of New Jersey’s high unemployment rate and the rate of those that are uninsured. South Jersey fares worst overall; I suppose that is because Jeff Van Drew is too busy spending $9 Million dollars tearing down a bridge he spent taxpayer money to bail out, and trying to put yellow stickers on TV warning people about gravity to worry about creating an environment conducive to job creation. Cumberland County fares the worst of all south Jersey counties.
Cumberland County ranked fourth among all 21 counties in the state in the percentage of residents without health insurance — with almost 19 percent of those younger than 65 uninsured — 2009 numbers released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau show.
A few years ago, the CCDO would be blaming GW. This year they would love to blame Chris Christie, but even they are not that stupid. They are silent about Obama, and of course Corzine could do no wrong. However, we have decades of absolute CCDO control in Cumberland County, and this is what we have to show. Not only do we not have jobs, but we cannot even afford to go to the doctor!
