MORIARTY: CHRISTIE KEEPS AT LEAST ONE PROMISE – A TAX CUT FOR THE RICH

Assemblyman Paul Moriarty (D-Gloucester/Camden), the sponsor of legislation (A-20) that would have eliminated Gov. Christie’s cuts to property tax relief for senior and disabled citizens and guaranteed the elimination of new and increased prescription drug fees, released the following statement Thursday on the governor’s veto:

“We at least now know for sure that Gov. Christie’s priority is protecting tax cuts for millionaires. That’s scary, and a tragedy for the more than 600,000 senior and disabled New Jerseyans who will now be unable to afford their property taxes. It’s hard to comprehend a more heartless veto than the one we just saw. Thanks to Gov. Christie, senior citizens throughout this state now face vicious property tax increases, with no guarantee they won’t face new and increased medication fees. Many could be out $2,000 while millionaires enjoy their $11,500 tax cut. At least Gov. Christie has kept at least one campaign promise – a tax cut for the rich.”
