Delivered in wintertime, today’s budget proposal comes with more cold and cruel news for New Jersey’s besieged taxpayers: the governor wants to raise taxes. Again. Instead of solutions, the budget proposal triples down on our state’s most pressing problems. It proposes billions in higher taxes, and oddly boasts about ‘stabilizing’ property taxes, as if that were actually true, and as if keeping property taxes ‘stable’ at their sky-high level is cause for celebration. While our citizens are rightfully clamoring for genuine tax relief, the best this budget message can muster is tone-deaf ‘stabilizing’ already-terrible property taxes. Torn from the Bernie Sanders playbook, the budget puts government first and taxpayers last. The governor should re-think his priorities.
Proposed Budget’s Highest Priority is Tax Hikes
