Murphy Continuing to Chase Jobs Out Of New Jersey


Yesterday, it was reported in the Wall Street Journal that the New York Stock Exchange is eying an exit from New Jersey as a result of a potential tax on securities transactions, and other exchanges are following suit.


In the last month business expertscertified public accountants, and New Jersey families have all panned the Murphy agenda, and they are now joined by the foremost investment exchanges in the world.


NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt issued the following statement:


“It seems the only thing more deadly for the New Jersey economy than Covid 19 is Governor Phil Murphy. At this point, there is no expert, no small business, and no common sense New Jerseyan who sees a benefit in the Governor’s economic policies. The financial services industry is a major employer in New Jersey, but Phil Murphy would offer it up on the altar of economic sacrifice for little more than progressive headlines and liberal handouts. It’s an unsustainable system, and the NJGOP is working everyday to defeat Phil Murphy and his liberal, Democrat cronies.”


Not surprisingly, Governor Murphy was unmoved by the Stock Exchange’s threat. NJGOP  Chairman Doug Steinhardt continued:

“Murphy’s follow up comments about everyone “giving a little blood” to support his bloated, super-sized budget highlight just how big New Jersey’s governmental problems are. At a time when millions of New Jerseyans have suffered some form of economic hardship, it should be the government giving to the people, not the other way around.“
