Steinhardt: NJ Congressional Dems Must Stand Up To Murphy
.

Trenton, NJ – According to a recent report, New Jersey has spent less than 3% of the almost $2.4 billion it has received from the federal government.

.
NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt released the following statement:

.
“Andy Kim, Josh Gottheimer, Tom Malinowski and Mikie Sherrill are completely feckless. They voted for the CARES act to ensure New Jersey’s small businesses stayed open, workers got paid and our healthcare system and frontline medical workers were supported. None of that has been accomplished because these weak leaders did little more than show up, press a green button and go home. Not one of them has had the courage to stand up to Governor Murphy and see through ensuring their districts received the support their tax dollars are paying for.
.

“Instead of putting that money to use helping struggling small businesses, Murphy is hoarding it hoping he can use it to balance his bloated budget. New Jersey’s federal delegation should be banging on Murphy’s door, demanding that the Governor send that money where it belongs, to create jobs, save businesses and help New Jersey’s nearly 1 million unemployed.”
