Healey Statement on Congressman Kim Trip

August 2, 2022

Bob Healey, Congressional Candidate in New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District today issued the following statement in response to Congressman Kim’s trip with Speaker Nancy Pelosi:

“While I genuinely appreciate Congressman Kim’s desire to join a congressional trip that includes a visit to the country his parents immigrated from, I question whether now is the right time.  The Congressman’s constituents are cancelling their own vacations and facing down a recession, record inflation, and spiking crime.  For their representative in Washington to be taking a completely voluntary, taxpayer-funded junket overseas, while his constituents struggle at home strikes me as tone deaf and and detached from the people he represents in Burlington, Mercer, and Monmouth Counties.”
