TRENTON, N.J. – Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick is calling on the Democrats to consider broad-based tax relief for the first time since Gov. Phil Murphy took office. He says that Murphy’s penchant for raising taxes is shared by the majority in the legislature, the only difference being the specifics of their policies.
“There are well over one-hundred bills that will be voted on today, and not a single one will offer a tax break to New Jerseyans,” said Bramnick (R-Union). “Whether or not you support giving criminals voting rights and student financial aid, driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants, and allowing six cities to impose a parking tax, they certainly demonstrate the Democrats are moving far left and are not the Democratic Party of the past.
“For years the top concern has been taxes,” concluded Bramnick. “People pay too much. That is what we need to address.”
