The new motto for the Garden State needs to be We Can’t Afford It. The other day I wrote about the Bayshore Heritage Byway that is proposed. As wonderful as it is, we can’t afford it.
The Daily Journal picked up on this as well. Today’s editorial is about expanding healthcare coverage to those who can’t afford it. Our elected officials say it will cost a mere $68 million more dollars this year. Sigh . . .
New Jersey has the highest property taxes in the nation and one of the worst business climates in the country. The state is at least $32 billion in debt and is facing structural billion-dollar budget deficits for years to come. Abbott school districts, including Vineland and Millville, have raised taxes and cut teachers. The state is planning to cut municipal aid and charge rural communities for state police coverage. The state simply has no money, and has its hand out to taxpayers for more.
We need to hammer home this message because the folks in Trenton just don’t get it.
