Ratcheting up the pressure

It’s becoming clear that if the Democrats do not pass the governor’s “tool kit” and if towns begin laying off workers next year, it’s going to be the fault of the Democrats.  

That’s the steady message from Gov. Chris Christie, one he reiterated Monday night during his monthly appearance on 101.5 FM. 

So, if Republicans who run most towns in Morris County  lay off workers, it’s the fault of the Democrats? That’s interesting.

The bottom line here is that the Dems should pass Christie’s reform package. but even if they do so, it’s unlikely to make a difference next year..

    A package like this tool kit should have been started 16 years ago. For too many years too many taxpayers were not paying attention to how large spending was growing and how taxes were going up.
    New Jersey needs to compete with nearby States for businesses and revenue. Taxes must be stabilized in order to get any production done.Who gets the blame? Maybe it does not matter as long as there is some awarness and some answers to these spending problems.
