The man stood right in front of Gov. Phil Murphy and was blunt. "This state is too expensive, and you're making it worse," Greg from Freehold told the Democratic governor during a town hall in Newark on Thursday night. Three months into his tenure, Murphy had come to Newark Tech High School to sell his first state budget proposal -- a $37.4 billion plan that includes more than $1.5 billion in new taxes and moves to close loopholes. The governor argued those hikes are needed because he "inherited a mess" from his predecessor, Republican Chris Christie, and that the state "stopped funding" important things like education, transportation, women's health and more.

MURPHY LIKE MOST RATS DONT CARE ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO GO TO WORK EVERYDAY TO PAY FOR HIS GIVE AWAY PROGRAMS TO THE LAZY
NJ used to be the envy of America. The NYC rich had homes there and raised their families and commuted to work.
NJ had some of the best companies located there, like Lucent, Campbell’s Soup, etc.
Yeah, that’s what happens when you elect a communist piece of sh*t as governor.
Err, sorry, I meant “democrat”... yeah, that’s it... “democrat”...
How are the politicians allowed to plop this nugget into any conversation with no questions asked?
What's the deal with "women's health"? Are women too stupid to watch their own health and they need the state to do it for them?
Why not "men's health", or why any kind of "health' at all? Of course when they aren't talking about "women's health" they are talking about the "chilluns health".
Methinks "women's health" is a euphenism for infanticide.
Wymyns’ “health” means an empty uterus.
important things like education, transportation, women's health and more. = near-mandatory public school propaganda centers
transportation = "public" transportation, ie buses, light rail, etc, not roads and bridges.
women's health = abortion mills, funding for abortifacient drugs, all of the above for minors.
more = state funded welfare single moms...
But we’re suing the US Congress for taking your money with the tax cuts .... see we’re all for the little guy.
Campbells is still here, in Camden.
We elected this turkey. Now were going to get what we asked for, good and hard. Not Phil Murphys fault.
Murphy was in affect saying - Your taxes would already have been higher if the previous administration had done things right.
In a sly political way Murphy got away with shifting blame and escaping the reality that he was and would have been for higher taxes all along.
What a jerk. Concerned taxpayer says he can't afford to live in the state and Governor says "then see ya! Who needs you? I got these sheep!" I am trapped in this socialist nightmare state because my wife refuses to move.
I live here as well (15W), and I can tell you the problem has gotten much worse because working people are leaving earlier. Instead of waiting until retirement, they are leaving as soon as their last child leaves high school (since colleges cost too much). They are following the good jobs that are also leaving NJ; the “folks who stay” will either be earning little or not working at all. Murphy represents the government worker caste, nothing else.
