Christie Comes Out Against Flat Tax  

Thursday, May 14, 2009

From the Lonegan campaign's email newsletter:

Astonishingly, Mayor Lonegan was attacked last week by Christie for supporting a Conservative Flat Tax that would pave the way for sustainable economic growth for every New Jerseyean. The Christie Campaign even resorted to using negative, automated phone calls to try to mislead Republicans into believing that a Simple Flat Tax is not in the best interests of taxpayers.
The flat tax ALONE could save New Jersey's economy. Add to that all the reductions Steve Lonegan is planning across the board, and you have the recipe for an economic boom in New Jersey the likes of which the world hasn't seen in a long time, possibly not even in Texas.

The only sticking point is that Steve will have to actually get it passed, and you can bet the liberals in the Assembly and the Senate won't be so eager to surrender their power to the people of New Jersey as to allow Mr. Lonegan's plans to happen. Conservatives will have to run and win - and I do NOT mean Republicans, as New Jersey's Republican Party is as deeply entrenched in the boondoggle that is liberalism as the Democrats and worse.

Still, having a strong conservative at the helm can't at all be a bad thing.

Go Steve!
