CRYAN: CHRISTIE VETO ‘ARROGANT AND OFFENSIVE’

Assembly Majority Leader Joseph Cryan (D-Union) on Thursday released the following statement after Gov. Chris Christie vetoed Democratic legislation that would have saved senior citizens from Christie’s proposed cuts to property tax relief programs and guaranteed the elimination of Christie’s proposed new prescription drug fees:

“Gov. Christie just made life more unaffordable for more than 600,000 senior and disabled citizens while awarding 16,000 millionaires with a tax cut. Senior citizens will now face unconscionable property tax increases, while millionaires get richer. That’s wrong. Self-indulgent rants and sound bites may get Gov. Christie giggles and laughs, but there’s nothing funny about vetoing a bill to help our elderly and disabled residents make ends meet. It’s arrogant and offensive.”
