MacArthur was alone among New Jersey’s 12 House members to vote for the 2017 tax bill favored by President Donald Trump, and he was the author of a bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act, with elimination of pre-existing condition protections, higher out-of-pocket costs and an age tax. The legislation failed in the Senate.

Kim was a national security official under President Barack Obama.
