TRENTON – In response to Assembly Republicans’ claims that the Democrats are not interested in providing tax relief, a spokesman for Assembly Democrats said the Republicans have not yet joined them on passing bills they sponsored concerning that issue.
“As the people of New Jersey want and expect, the Assembly Democrats will continue to be fiscally responsible and prudent. We all want tax cuts, which is why the Assembly Democrats approved a responsible plan to triple middle-class property tax relief credits, only to see the Assembly Republicans recklessly oppose and Gov. Christie reject it,” Assembly Democrats spokesman Tom Hester said in a statement.
“Quite simply, the Assembly Democrats will not be lectured by those who have supported policies that led to a net 20 percent property tax hike and 9.9 percent unemployment. If the Assembly Republicans want to join Democrats in their fight for the middle-class, job creation, quality and accessible health care for all and gender equality, then they’re more than welcome.”
