This New York Times article totally misses the point. You get these references to how "the wealthy and most businesses" are "unscathed", with the usual bitching and moaning and moaning about how "the middle class, the poor, the elderly, schoolchildren, college students and inner-city residents" are stuck footing the bill.
I guess the NYT has forgotten that "the wealthy and most businesses" have been footing the majority of the bill for New Jersey's out of control government from the get-go, and that "the middle class, the poor, the elderly, schoolchildren, college students and inner-city residents" will all be better off if businesses get a break, which is really what is being complained about. After all, New Jersey's ridiculously high jobless rate is almost exclusively due to out of control government intrusion into these same businesses that would otherwise be better equipped to benefit the poor, etc. After all, if the government is taking the profits, there's less available to hire people or award raises.
Liberals are fools when it comes to the economy, and the New York Times is no exception. They somehow believe that money grows on trees and that the wealthy and businesses are standing under that tree hogging up all of its fruit. They also believe that having their government entities steal their profits is without negative consequence to the very people they pretend to champion. They also think these people are stupid, and they have a point. After all, if they hadn't been buying the lies all this time, the libs would have been long gone long ago.
Now that New Jersey is on the path of recovery and renewal, it's time to make sure Chris stays the course and doesn't start playing the games that the socialists have been playing for so long. Given his establishment Republican status, I'd say we're going to have to watch Chris very closely. Still, this budget is a breath of fresh air if ever Trenton had seen one.
