NJGOP statement on Zwicker and Freiman voting to raise taxes on seniors and low and middle income New Jerseyans

Trenton, NJ- This week, the New Jersey Assembly voted for a short term budget to carry the state through the end of the extended fiscal year. Included in that budget were total cuts to the senior freeze, and cuts to the homestead tax credit.

Chairman Steinhardt said:

“The same week that Governor Murphy fully funded his union cronies’ pension program, and cut a sweetheart deal with public employees to guarantee jobs amidst unprecedented turmoil, Assemblymen Zwicker and Freiman voted to jack up taxes for the elderly and middle and low income families in New Jersey. New Jersey Republicans have been saying that the Democrats in Trenton are focused on private sector pain and public sector gain, and you couldn’t make that point any more clearly than Zwicker and Freiman have this week. As we move towards the 2021 election, NJGOP will make sure that voters in LD16 know that in the midst of a global pandemic and recession, Zwicker and Freiman voted to jack up taxes on the elderly and middle class. We’re confident their constituents will punish them for that at the polls next fall.”
