“What would you do if you were stuck in one place and every day was exactly the same, and nothing that you did mattered?” –Bill Murray, Groundhog Day, 1993
On Day Two of Senate Democrats’ quest to wipe out state reserve funds and plunge the state budget into the red for political purposes, Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean, Jr. (R- Union) issued the following statement:
“It’s beginning to feel a bit like Groundhog Day in Trenton, with another set of politically motivated override votes scheduled by the Majority.
“Just like yesterday, this is all about Democrats’ plans for a misleading smear campaign in the fall elections, not the best interests of taxpayers.
“Just like yesterday, the Democrats are attempting to spend far more money than the state of New Jersey has in the bank.
“And just like yesterday, Democrats will ignore the fact that they handed Governor Christie a budget that was nearly $1 billion out of balance and relied on false revenue estimates and phantom savings.
“Their scare tactics, misinformation, and name calling didn’t accomplish anything yesterday. This movie is unlikely to be better the second time we all watch it.”
