Murphy’s Baby Bills Kill NJ Future
.
In advance of Governor Murphy’s press conference today on Baby Bills, NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt offered the following comment:
.
“At a time when Governor Murphy is borrowing $4 billion, raising taxes on gasoline, tolls and income, he wants to give $1000 to every child born in 2021 – his election year! Governor Murphy’s Baby Bill scheme will cost nearly $16 billion to fully fund. Meanwhile, too many New Jerseyans can’t find jobs, can’t get unemployment benefits, can’t open their businesses and can’t feed their families.  If the Governor wants to address the wealth gap, he should start by making New Jersey affordable for those who live and work here now.”
