Webber:  High Taxes are the Problem, Not the Solution


Morris Plains, NJ – Assemblyman Jay Webber issued the following statement in response to Gov. Phil Murphy’s promise to increase the New Jersey income tax and his speculation that such a tax hike might be reversed at some time in the future.

“High taxes are New Jersey’s very problem, not the solution.  Governor Murphy’s plan to hike the New Jersey income tax should be rejected out of hand.  The Governor’s hint that an income-tax hike could be temporary is a classic political con job that we all know too painfully well in New Jersey.   As Ronald Reagan rightly said, nothing lasts longer than a temporary government program.   Of course any income-tax increase from Governor Murphy would be permanent — ‘we need more’ has become the mantra of Trenton’s tax hikers, and there never will be enough tax money to satisfy Governor Murphy’s spending ambitions.  The truth is that just two things might survive an apocalypse:  cockroaches and New Jersey liberal tax hikes.  Governor Murphy’s pledge to increase incomes taxes should be abandoned immediately.”
