Greenwald: Christie Budget = More Tax Cuts for the Wealthy

Majority Leader Notes Middle-Class Tax Relief is Democratic Focus

(TRENTON) – Assembly Majority Leader Lou Greenwald (D-Camden) released the following statement Tuesday on Gov. Chris Christie’s budget address:

“The governor’s budget plan is just more of the same – tax cuts for the rich at the expense of the middle-class.
“Gov. Christie just doesn’t get it. His zeal for tax breaks for the rich while middle-class families struggle with the highest property taxes in the nation is wrong. He has essentially proclaimed ‘Mission Accomplished’ after a net 20 percent property tax increase.
“Democrats will begin reviewing this plan line-by-line, but will do so continually focused on ways to combat property taxes and restore the property tax relief cut by this governor.
“Middle-class property tax relief is our priority.”
