Gusciora: millionaire’s tax should have been part of deal

Among that majority of Democrats in the caucus opposed to a health benefits and pension deal and critical of Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver’s (D-34), Assemblyman Reed Gusciora (D-15) expressed disappointment.

“As part of the deal, Democratic leadership should have extracted the millionaires tax (from the governor),” said Gusciora. “This should be about shared sacrifice.”

“This is a fight for the soul of the Democratic Party,” added the Mercer Assemblyman as a public workers rally intensified outside the Statehouse Annex.
