Christie sees job loss as argument against tax hike

Gov. Chris Christie said the 8,600 jobs the state lost in March bolster his case for cutting taxes and not increasing them.

“I think the good part of it is, I think that anyone around here who thinks that, ‘Oh, things are getting better around here so we can raise taxes on people,’ — this is a good cautionary tale to the folks in the Legislature who decide they want to raise taxes on people in New Jersey, because they think this comeback is bulletproof,” Christie said at a press conference on Friday.  (Kitchenman, NJBIZ)

  1. Who is he kidding? Go back to 1994 and Whitman then kook at where vwe are now.

  2. Who is he kidding? Just go back to 1994 under Whitman and look at all the debt the state has accumulated in that time ,this is more of the same bs. First pay your bills and debts then talk about cutting taxes.

    You clearly don’t understand economics, and the competitive nature of States. If you lower taxes, you attract investment in the State. If you lower taxes, you also leave more money in the pockets of the people, who in turn, spend it in the State. If you do all this at the same time when you cut wasteful State Government spending, you are on the way to a much better place. Now on a Federal scale, the same thing applies to international competition. We currently have the highest corporate tax rate in the industrialized world, but the likes of Obama simply don’t understand the free market. Don’t feel bad. If the President doesn’t, you can’t be expected to know.
