"It's not feasible to extract the oil from shale in a cost-effective way at this point. And really, if the industry does think it's the way to go, we encourage them to invest their own money. We don't think any more federal subsidies should be provided for oil shale technology." - Autumn Hanna, Taxpayers for Common Sense http://soundbiteservices.com/fmtrss.php?id=255-1

“Medicaid expansion will ultimately result in newly insured workers taking advantage of the preventive care options that will become available to them. This would keep them healthier, spending more time at work and spending less time off due to illness. This is why we think that it's so critical that Gov. Christie expand New Jersey's Medicaid program.” - Jeff Abramo, AARP New Jersey

"Thirty years ago you could easily drop out of high school and get a good job in a factory, and now that's really no longer the case for many young people. And we've also seen a lot of older workers end up, with the recession, having to go towards more entry-level, lower-paying jobs that were historically taken by young people just entering the marketplace." Teresa Falgoust, KIDS COUNT

"Unfortunately, we've had a lot of disasters, so you're seeing more use of the program and more states going for it, and I think it very clearly points out that any attempt to limit access to the program is misguided at best." - Adele LaTourette, New Jersey Anti-Hunger Coalition (NJAHC)

"We take pride in [turning no one away], that we provide care to everybody in the community, regardless of their ability to pay. A lot of folks have Medicaid but, as you know, Medicaid doesn't always buy you access. But we accept Medicaid, Medicare, private insurance, and if our budget is not cut, then we can see even more." - Dr. Gary Wiltz
