Senator Anthony Bucco Calls on Governor Murphy to Lift People Up ,Not Pull Them Down

Trenton NJ, Senator Anthony Bucco (R-25) said Governor Phil Murphy’s talk of advancing “tax fairness” is really just an excuse to tax more to spend more.

“Governor Murphy’s interest in ‘tax fairness’ is just an excuse to tax more to fund an expensive progressive agenda that New Jersey will never be able to afford,” said Bucco, the Senate Republican Budget Officer. “If the governor were truly concerned about ‘fairness,’ he would find ways to lift struggling people up by cutting their taxes, instead of pulling down those who have managed to succeed in New Jersey by increasing tax burdens that are already excessive.”

Bucco suggested cutting taxes for lower-income workers or increasing the Earned Income Tax Credit as non-punitive tax policy changes that the governor could pursue with bipartisan support.

“If the governor continues to equate ‘tax fairness’ with ‘tax increases,’ that should be seen as a clear sign that his rhetoric is nothing more than convenient cover for a money grab that would allow him to spend more.”

I am SHOCKED. This is depressing. I never knew this can happen in Ridgewood. These things do not happen in the Bronx in the middle of the day let alone a small, cozy town in Bergen County. If this has been happening on a regular basis why is no one arrested? Why can’t there be hidden cameras in these places? If there is no punishment things will get worse.
And I am sorry but continually advising people to not leave stuff in their cars is insulting. It is suggesting we have to accept crime as a normal thing and accept that we have no power over criminals.
