Governor’s Town Hall: West Deptford

By Zachary Fink

Two days after Governor Christie delivered his budget address and challenged Senate President Steve Sweeney to pass his pension and benefits reforms the governor takes his reform agenda directly to Sweeney’s district.  In response Sweeney released this message, “it is nice that the Governor took time out from his busy schedule of raising property taxes, underfunding education and pitting New Jersey residents against one another to visit somewhere that is actually in New Jersey.”

    The Governor is taking a much too aggressive approach on the budget crisis & balancing the budget on the backbones of the middle class workers of NJ. “Rome wasn’t built in a day”

    Let’s remember that the audience was made up of Christie supporters who believe that taking $3,000 – $7,000 per year away from people earning less than $100,000 is a GOOD idea, but taking even so little as $1.00 in increased taxes from those earning millions is a BAD idea. If the public workers have to pay 30% of their health insurance and contribute a greater percentage to their retirement plan, it will cost them $3,000 – $7,000 per year. Wake up New Jersey. Tell the Governor that he should NOT tax unfairly. The wealthy should share some of the pain too.
