For those of you not in the Garden State, Governor Christie recently vetoed a budget bill that would place a 2.5% income tax "surcharge" on individuals making over $1,000,000 annually. The estimated half-billion dollars would have been used to close fiscal shortages on numerous entitlement programs within the state. It doesn't matter what it's called, or how the liberals try to sugarcoat it...it is SOCIALIST REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH.
Governor Christie has already been pilloried and vilified in the NJ media for forcing the cities and townships of NJ to make the tough choices and cut spending. The Democrat lawmakers are already proclaiming him as "protecting the millionaires" by vetoing this bill.
No, he is protecting EVERYONE who earns...once you Democrats learn that tax increases on the wealthy inevitably spread to the rest of us, maybe you will be able to understand this simple concept. History shows that I am likely to be wrong.
