Jon Corzine and Florio's Legacy

David Rebovich has an interesting post today, "Jon Corzine And The Legacy Of Jim Florio".

While he makes the case that tax increases are probably inevitable, he omits one critical reason for NJ residents' antipathy to any "logical solution" to our state's financial mess: a well-founded skepticism that any additional funds raised won't be pissed away yet again.

I once read that the keystone to our "voluntary" tax system is the citizens' belief that taxes are fairly collected and wisely spent. Few people in NJ believe the latter.
