I see that the democrat Governor and democrat legislators have reached an agreement on how best to increase the amount of tax the state can squeeze out of New Jersey’s taxpayers. As such, in the end, it really didn’t matter much which democrats won the argument.
Throughout this mess, our Big Spending Governor has acted more like a union boss than the State’s CEO, and the legislators, who wallow in the Political Swamp, seemed most concerned about figuring out ways to impose new taxes under the voters’ Radar.
The state, which became a national joke as a result of Governor McGreevey’s antics, is faring no better now, and there is absolutely no reason to think things will improve going forward, unless we do something to fix things.
Here’s my suggestion for fixing the disgusting black hole that is New Jersey politics. It’s simple.
Step 1. On Election Day, be sure you know who the incumbent candidate is. The political party doesn’t matter. Just make sure you know who currently holds the office.
Step 2. Vote for the other candidate.
I know you’re thinking, ”Yo, Jimbo. There’s no guarantee that we’ll wind up with better people.” To which I respond, ”Yo, can it get any worse?”
