Corzine – The Failed Senate Agenda and Record
Excerpts from North Jersey.Com in the article Driven By Ambition outlining Senator Corzine’s domestic agenda in the Senate and his less than stellar legislative achievements since his election in 2000.
Social Security: Corzine has been one of several Democrats leading the opposition to President Bush's plan to partially privatize Social Security.
Tax cuts: Corzine was a vocal critic of the Bush tax cuts.
Health care: The senator has advocated universal health coverage. He voted against the federal prescription-drug benefit on the grounds that it would reduce coverage under an existing program in New Jersey.
Of the measures listing Senator Corzine as a primary sponsor, few have made it through the full Senate.
