Businessman Rich Pezzullo, a Republican seeking to unseat career politician Frank Pallone in New Jersey’s 6th Congressional District, applauded President Trump’s signature of legislation dubbed “right to try” that grants terminally ill patients the right to choose alternative treatment options when they had exhausted all fully FDA-approved treatment options.
“This is a victory for everyone in America who is struggling with a terminal illness, their families, and their loved ones,” remarked Pezzullo. “This is a victory for hope.”
Frank Pallone, running for his sixteenth term in Congress, vocally opposed the bill even after its passage in the House. Pezzullo was incensed at Pallone’s opposition.
“This bill is common sense, this is what anybody with a heart would do. Frank Pallone’s consistent, vocal opposition to an effort to improve American lives demonstrates that he is cold, unfeeling, and cruel in his unflinching devotion to partisan politics,” Pezzullo said. “Now we have seen Frank Pallone’s true colors. 30 years in Washington has turned him in to a calculating politician with zero concern for human dignity. He must be defeated right here, right now.”
“Ours is a nation of fighters. We never run or hide from even the most monumental challenges. This bill offers hope to those brave Americans who need it most. While cowardly Frank Pallone desperately works to keep power in the hands of bureaucrats, I’m going to work to unleash courage and creativity and put power back in the hands of the American people.”
