The Jaffe Briefing - January 16, 2018

OUR TAKE ON THE NEWS IN NEW JERSEY

TRENTON - Red-blooded New Jerseyans, in their respectable Republican cloth coats, have been dreading today. An actual breathing liberal, once again, takes over the governor's office and ruins everything. It was eight strong years of solid conservative stewardship, they think, as they trudge up the stairs of the War Memorial in Trenton, scuffing their ...

OUR TAKE ON THE NEWS IN NEW JERSEY

YOUR BACKYARD - If we don't kill our bears, their children and grandchildren will be living in your backyard. That is one way to summarize a 12-page report from state wildlife officials, claiming that Gov.-elect Phil Murphy's plan to stop the bear hunts could cause their population to double by 2022, NJ.com reports. Murphy wants to ...

The Jaffe Briefing - January 11, 2018

OUR TAKE ON THE NEWS IN NEW JERSEY

UP THE CREEK - New Jersey has a weaker tax base, higher taxes and simmering fury amongst taxpayers. It is a recipe for financial trouble, reports The Wall Street Journal, noting it has been more than 20 years since New Jersey was current on its pension payments, leaving the state nearly $100 billion in the hole. And while ...

The Jaffe Briefing - January 10, 2018

OUR TAKE ON THE NEWS IN NEW JERSEY

TRENTON - Gov. Chris Christie talked for more than two hours yesterday, in his farewell "State of the State" address, highlighting all of his accomplishments. He served eight years (well, minus the two years he ran for President) and has done so much that we must recognize and appreciate. So, without further ado, free of slant or snark, here is ...

OUR TAKE ON THE NEWS IN NEW JERSEY

TRENTON - With the end of this session of the New Jersey Legislature, there were plenty of bills flying everywhere yesterday, furiously voted on and moved from desk to desk and chamber to chamber. When the dust settled yesterday, and exhausted lawmakers ran out of things on which to vote, here's some stuff heading on to the lame-duck governor's ...

The Jaffe Briefing - January 8, 2018

OUR TAKE ON THE NEWS IN NEW JERSEY

NORTH JERSEY - There's lots of brain power at work to sidestep the new federal tax law that limits property tax deductions. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is talking about lawsuits and eliminating the state income tax, replacing it with a payroll tax. In California, they want to set up a charity, allowing taxpayers to make "donations," ...

January 5, 2018

Whether debating healthcare legislation, tax reform or deficit reduction, lawmakers see Medicaid as some magic source of ready-made cost savings. Many don’t seem to understand how intertwined Medicaid is within society; a lifeline for so many families – like mine.

Excessive sitting is also associated with a higher mortality rate. Is sitting really as bad as smoking for your health? Why is sitting so detrimental? What strategies can combat ...
