Assemblywoman Dawn Marie Addiego and Assemblyman Scott Rudder said they will be collecting empty wallets to deliver to Governor Corzine’s desk in protest of his insistence on balancing the budget on the backs of property taxpayers.

“For years, the Corzine administration has been forcing property taxpayers to bear the burden of Trenton’s spending spree, but after his budget speech this week, middle class taxpayers fear they may be left with nothing but an empty wallet,” said Assemblywoman Dawn Marie Addiego.

Bucco: False Scatological References Aside, Governor Corzine, the Debate Is About the Priorities of Middle-Class New Jersey

Senate Republican Budget Officer Anthony Bucco said this in response to state Treasurer David Rousseau’s vulgar and inaccurate attack on past Republican initiatives. These proposals would have generated surpluses that could now be used to keep jobs in New Jersey and prevent taxes on hard-working families from soaring during a recession:

“It’s obvious that the treasurer’s election-year attempt to discredit Republicans was crude and inappropriate. What may not be obvious to some is that the treasurer’s statement is demonstrably false.

Senate Republican Whip Kevin O’Toole of Cedar Grove wonders if Governor Jon Corzine has ever totaled the cost of the burdens he has loaded onto the backs of New Jersey’s middle class during his three years in office.

“This year, Governor Corzine wants to raise taxes by more than $420 million by eliminating the middle class tax deduction for property taxes. He wants to raise the costs of owning a car or boat or motorcycle by as much as $60 million by raising fees charged by the Department of Motor Vehicles. He plans to raise sales taxes on some products by $40 million.

O’Toole: Job-Killing Jon Corzine’s Plan to Drive More Employers from New Jersey

Please Share:

Bookmark and Share

Senator Kevin O’Toole, R-Bergen, Passaic and Essex, said that Governor Jon Corzine’s budget speech included three more proposals that will drive jobs from New Jersey and increase unemployment that is already significantly higher than the rates in the neighboring states of Delaware, Pennsylvania and New York:

“Nothing kills more jobs during a recession than a tax increase on business. Yet the governor wants to force employers to pay another $350 million in taxes to bolster the unemployment insurance fund during the worst recession in memory. This comes as the state already ranks dead-last in polls that rank states on taxation of business.
