This Tax Day New Jerseyans Paying More, Getting Less in Chris Christie's N.J.

This Tax Day New Jerseyans Paying More, Getting Less in Chris Christie's N.J.

COMMENTARY/OPINION

In advance of Governor Christie’s Somerset Town Hall, New Jersey Working Families director Analilia Mejia released the following statement:

“This Tax Day marks the fifth year in a row New Jersey’s richest residents and largest corporations will enjoy big tax breaks courtesy of Governor Christie. Even worse, the governor paid for tax cuts for the rich by raising taxes on the working poor and middle-class, and by shirking investments in good public schools, safe streets, and other bedrock public structures that could finally get New Jersey back to work. Four years of trickle-down gimmicks has been a disaster for New Jersey’s economic recovery. Can New Jersey really afford another four?”
