The Tax Tsunami is About to Hit Us All in N.J. Where it Hurts

The Tax Tsunami is About to Hit Us All in N.J. Where it Hurts
BY JOE SINAGRA

OPINION/COMMENTARY

I’m sorry to be a buzz but here it is,  just one day after Chris Christie’s administration took a beating in an oral argument  before the New Jersey Supreme Court:

The politicians who created the pension mess  knew they would not be around when the feces hit the fan. They created havoc from Florio on down with an unsustainable pension system and now want the citizens of New Jersey to pay for their mistakes.

If anyone is looking to place blame, it is the politicians on both sides, not those that were part of the system. They were promised the sun, the moon and the stars but wound up with asteroid dust.

Every other governor kept the taxes at bay by taking money OUT of the pension system.

Once Governor Christie leaves, politicians will look to fund the pensions and guess who they will expect to pay the freight? You and I.
