TRENTON, N.J. – Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick criticized Democrats for prioritizing Governor Murphy’s extreme agenda during yesterday’s voting session. A poll by Farleigh Dickinson and the Garden State Initiative found that 44 percent of New Jerseyans plan to leave New Jersey because of property taxes and the high cost of living, while 28 percent plan to leave in the next five years.
“Yesterday Trenton Democrats spent most of the day on the rights of criminals,” said Bramnick (R-Union). “Residents are sick and tired of paying the nation’s highest property taxes and plan to leave. That is being completely ignored.”
Democrats plan to put taxpayers on the hook to pay for college for prisoners. No bills were passed that would lower property taxes or address business tax incentives.
“Democrats have failed to address any important issues in the state and they have concentrated on people who have committed crimes,” said Bramnick.
