Steinhardt: Murphy Letting New Jersey Burn
 
 
 recent report by a federal government watchdog confirmed what the NJGOP has been screaming about for months – Governor Murphy is sitting on almost ALL of the CARES Act money that the federal government sent to New Jersey for COVID-19 relief. 

Meanwhile New York has spent 42.3% of its allocation and Pennsylvania spent 28.7%.

NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt released the following statement:
“New Jersey is on fire and Governor Murphy is letting it burn. It has been 127 days since the CARES Act was signed into law, yet Murphy sits on a mountain of money while businesses go under and senior citizens and veterans die in long term care facilities. We have the highest COVID death rate in America, the second highest unemployment rate, and billions of dollars in federal aid being withheld from the millions of New Jerseyans who need them. That’s Phil Murphy’s legacy and it stinks.”
