… I highly doubt that Corzine has someone like me, the middle class, in mind at all. The way he’s governing, I wouldn’t doubt that his secret goal is to drive all Middle class out of NJ and keep it for his wealthy partners and dirty legislators.
During his latest Financial Restructuring and Debt Reduction Town Hall meeting – held last night in Morris County – Governor Corzine told those assembled he’s working hard “to put lids and caps and limits on where we are going on spending – so we can break the back of the things that are driving up the cost of government.” (Tuesday, Corzine signed off on a bill passed by the lame-duck Legislature to increase the salary for judges in the state by 11 percent. That’s after they got a 5.7 percent hike last year – hmmm – perhaps it’s things like this that are driving up the cost of government Governor?)
When asked if life is more affordable for Jersey residents since he was elected Governor two years ago, Corzine said “the cost of living has gone up since I’ve been Governor – on health care, the cost of energy prices has gone up, the cost of food is also higher…I can’t control what the world prices are in a lot of these ingredients.”
He added “the people of the State of New Jersey are pressed – I get it – I’m trying to do those things that we have some control over…I believe that if people look at their property tax rebates in conjunction with their property tax bills, it actually has gone down.”
The problem is, Governor, you stated on 101.5 morning show that if this doesn’t go thru, you’ll have to make “draconian cuts”
…well isn’t that what we need? How soon can u start???
