GREENWALD: CHRISTIE HIKES TAXES ON MILLIONS OF NEW JERSEYANS WITH A STROKE OF A PEN

(TRENTON) — Assembly Budget Chairman Lou Greenwald (D-Camden) released the following statement Tuesday after Gov. Chris Christie signed into law a budget that raises taxes by more than $1 billion on New Jerseyans:

“With a stroke of his pen, Gov. Christie has delivered tax increases on nearly everything that’s important to hard-working New Jerseyans.

“Property taxes will skyrocket. Health care will be taxed and slashed. Education will be cut. Public safety will be slashed. Auto and health insurance costs will rise. Job creating business incentives will be decimated.
