NJGOP Chairman Samuel Raia’s Statement on the Passage of Democrat’s Budget Plan

June 27, 2014

New Jersey Republican Party Chairman Samuel S. Raia released the following statement after Democrats in the Legislature approved their Fiscal 2015 budget yesterday that proposes hefty tax increases on hardworking New Jerseyans:

“The budget approved yesterday by Democrats in the Legislature once again fails to provide viable long-term solutions to the fiscal challenges caused by out of control public employee entitlement costs. For the fifth year in a row, Trenton Democrats have proposed taxing our way out of New Jersey’s spending problem and I would strongly support Governor Christie’s veto of these tax increases as he has done each year before.”
