“The budget proposed today by Governor Murphy is big on spending and political agenda, but comes up small on affordability and common sense.
“I wish we heard more in the way of helping people who are struggling financially during this pandemic. There are many residents in our state who are in a tough spot right now because the Governor is not focusing on getting people back to work and helping improve their personal budgets.
“This spending proposal won’t make life any easier for residents who are having difficulties making ends meet.
“With eight new taxes that would cost more than $1 billion, and $4 billion in borrowing to fund out-of-control spending initiatives, it is clear taxpayers can give up hopes for a more affordable New Jersey.”
