(TRENTON) – Assembly Majority Leader Lou Greenwald (D-Camden/Burlington) released the following statement on Monday:
“It’s nice of Gov. Christie to stop by New Jersey every once in a while, but his brief swing through the state unfortunately won’t repair the damage he’s done to middle-class taxpayers.
“Actions speak louder than words, and Gov. Christie’s actions prove his priority is protecting tax breaks for the mega-rich at the expense of the middle-class.
“Time and time again Gov. Christie has rejected property tax relief for New Jersey’s middle-class and seniors, to the point that they’re suffering under a net 20 percent property tax hike.
“Gov. Christie even rejected tax relief for working poor families.
“And let’s not forget the transit fare and toll increases Gov. Christie allowed.
“No amount of showboating by Gov. Christie can hide the fact that his attack on the middle-class marches onward.”
