(TRENTON) – Assembly Majority Leader Lou Greenwald (D-Camden/Burlington) released the following statement on Monday:
“Gov. Christie’s war on New Jersey’s middle-class marches onward.
“The governor’s mania to protect tax cuts for the mega-rich over property tax relief for the middle-class and senior citizens is appalling. We gave the governor one more chance to help beleaguered homeowners across this state and once again he failed miserably.
“Today was a blatant attempt by the governor to distract from his opposition to middle-class New Jerseyans.
“The governor has made his choice – he will protect the mega-rich to the detriment of middle-class taxpayers.
“In his desperation to deliver tax cuts to the wealthy during his audition for the vice presidency, Gov. Christie has put his own political ambitions ahead of New Jersey’s middle class.
“As he spouts distortions and slogans, the governor cannot escape the facts: he keeps protecting huge tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires while property taxes in New Jersey just keep rising. Democrats wanted to correct that injustice but Gov. Christie simply wants to prolong it.”
