Still No Answer from Governor on Greenwald Debate Challenge

Christie Had Said He Would Debate ‘Anytime They Want’

(TRENTON) – Assembly Majority Leader Lou Greenwald (D-Camden/Burlington) released the following statement Wednesday on Gov. Chris Christie’s continued failure to directly answer his invitation to debate the Assembly Democratic plan for middle-class property tax relief versus the governor’s plan for an income tax scheme that mostly benefits the wealthy:

“I still await an answer from the governor on my invitation to fulfill his own vow to debate our plan for middle-class and senior property tax relief versus his income tax scheme to benefit the rich.
“The governor himself said he was willing to debate this issue ‘anytime they want,’ but now he is hiding behind a spokesman.
“This is a simple question, governor.
“It deserves a straight answer.
“Is it a yes or is it a no?”
