(TRENTON) – Assembly Majority Leader Joe Cryan (D-Union) released the following statement Tuesday after Gov. Chris Christie’s budget address:
“This governor’s assault on the middle-class knows no bounds.
“This governor simply takes money from everyone and provides little in return, while creating divisiveness throughout our state.
“To pit neighbor against neighbor – teachers vs. senior citizens – is absolutely wrong.
“While we’re fighting for the working class, this governor has presented a budget that will crush the middle-class and poor with property tax hikes, reduce access to vital health care services and provide tax breaks to dead millionaires.
“The governor has once again shown that his priorities are not those of working class families.
“I’ll give him this much – at least he copycatted our business tax cuts. Still, he should have just approved our business tax cuts so we’d be well on our way already toward improved economic development.”
