Taking Care of Their Own 0
The party of privilege:
In a dramatic gesture, (New Jersey–ed.) Gov. Christie on Thursday evening vetoed the “millionaire’s tax” just moments after it was passed by the Democratic-controlled Legislature.
Democratic legislators argued that with the tax, which would increase the tax rate on income above $1 million from 8.97 percent to 10.75 percent, the state could restore property tax rebates to 600,000 senior citizens and disabled residents.
In RepublicanWorld, it’s clearly better to lay off workers, cut services, attack state employees’ pay, and gut their pensions than to ask the privileged to chip in.
