Study: NJ Would See Job Loss Under House GOP’s Obamacare Repeal and Replace Proposal

Washington, DC, June 19, 2017 — Jonathan D. Salant reports in The Star-Ledger/NewJersey.com that New Jersey would lose more jobs than all but five other states under the House Republican health care bill, according to a study released June 14.

The Garden State would lose 42,000 jobs by 2026, behind only New York, Pennsylvania, Florida, Michigan, and Illinois, according to the study by George Washington University’s Milken Institute School of Public Health and the Commonwealth Fund, a foundation that supports efforts to increase health coverage.

Overall, according to the study, the 10 states with the largest job losses by 2026 are:

  1. New York (86,000)
  2. Pennsylvania (85,000)
  3. Florida (83,000)
  4. Michigan (51,000)
  5. Illinois (46,000)
  6. New Jersey (42,000)
  7. Ohio (42,000)
  8. North Carolina (41,000)
  9. California (32,000)
  10. Tennessee (28,000).

Forty-seven states have job losses by 2026; four states (Colorado, Hawaii, Utah, and Washington) have small job gains in 2026, but would likely incur losses in another year or two.

Senate Republicans currently working behind closed doors and without public hearings are drafting their own bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reported the House Republicans’ American Health Care Act (AHCA) would increase the number of uninsured Americans under age 65 by 14 million in fiscal year 2018, eventually reaching 23 million more by 2026.

A RAND analysis of an earlier version of the bill was similar: 14 million more uninsured in 2020 and 20 million in 2026.
