Im all for it. We could use a few more millionaires here in Florida.
Good point. At what point do you push too many millionaires and their tax payments out if your state?
Never thought I’d have such a Doofus for a Governor.
Legislating from the Governor’s chair.
Interesting tactic, is it common?
He doesn’t want to stumble around? What happens when he is stumbling around because his tax revenue projections from millionaire taxes fall short???
And remember folks, in New Jersey, Murphy was asked how much one would need to make a year to be considered a millionare, Murphy answered “$40,000 a year”.
And yes it is $40,000 a year, no zero is missing
Its only good if you are a democrat
I don’t get why it’s still so crowded here considering all the people fleeing the State.
New Jersey Slogan:” We promise to beat the snot out of all millionaires who live here.”
Total liberal jackass. Good luck to the fools who voted for this fool.
New Jersey Slogan: We promise to beat the snot out of all millionaires who live here.
With the following slogan “Anyone making more than $40,000 a year is a Millionaire”
Well, I’m good. I don’t live in NJ and I don’t make 40,000.
What if... Atlas shrugged?
Ask Andrew Cuomo. He is an expert on that subject.
Sold my Jersey house 7 months ago and relocated. Best decision I ever made.
Ohmygosh.. I am so happy for those who have gotten out. I will, too.. Someday.
Retirees fleeing NJ in droves!
