Another Year Of "Tax And Spend"
Gov Corzine and the Assembly Democrats have apparently reached a budget deal. Here's all you need to know.
Once again, the Democrats increase NJ taxes. The sales tax will go from 6% to 7%. One of the highest tax states in the country will become even more onerous.
Once again, the Democrats continue to waste taxpayer money. There will be no headcount reductions or spending cuts in our bloated state government. The Democrats ignored all spending cut proposals, and made no progress in reducing or eliminating runaway state spending. Another tax increase is now certain for next year.
Once again, the Democrats lie about property tax relief. Any talk about setting aside a portion of the tax increase is simply blather, nothing more than lipstick on the pig. The commingled tax revenues will soon be diverted to other programs.
Once again, the Democrats fleece NJ taxpayers.
