GREENWALD: PUBLIC TESTIMONY SHOWS PAIN CHRISTIE BUDGET WOULD INFLICT ON SENIOR CITIZENS, MIDDLE CLASS & STUDENTS

(TRENTON) – Assembly Budget Chairman Lou Greenwald (D-Camden) released the following statement Monday as the Assembly Budget Committee convened a public hearing on Gov. Chris Christie’s budget proposal:


“The testimony we’re hearing today once again emphasizes this plain fact – Gov. Christie’s budget plan directly targets senior citizens, students and the middle-class with painful tax and fee increases that would make it more difficult to live in New Jersey.

“This much is also becoming very clear – no one is buying Gov. Christie’s claim that this budget plan is based on shared sacrifice.

“A budget that hits senior citizens, the middle-class, poor and college students with tax increase after tax increase and fee increase after fee increase is not shared sacrifice.”
