Governor Murphy’s election rules have the real potential to make him and New Jersey the laughing stock of the nation and cause constitutional chaos. It is very possible that Jersey ballots will not be tabulated before the Electoral College meets on December 14 or when the President is to be inaugurated on January 20.

House races in districts 2,3,5, 7 and 11 could still be undecided when the House of Representatives is scheduled to be sworn in on January 3.

Smith notes Social Security’s 85th year

View this post on Instagram

Today, #SocialSecurity turns 85 years old. Now more than ever, we must vigorously defend and safeguard both Social Security and Medicare—our nation’s sacred trusts with senior citizens and retirees. Senior citizens in New Jersey and across the country have worked hard throughout their lives to provide for their families and help build our communities, all while paying into Social Security and Medicare. These critical programs serve as a foundation for economic and healthcare security for millions of older Americans. A commitment was made, and the commitment must be kept. As I have done throughout my time in Congress, I will remain steadfast, working to ensure we deliver on promises made to retired and disabled beneficiaries who have earned, and now rely upon, their Social Security and Medicare benefits.
