Tell Senator Oroho our answer is simple. #NOGASTAX
Spent the better part of the week on the air hoping to shed some light on the outrageous attempt of several legislators in Trenton to raise the gas tax in New Jersey $0.23 per gallon. Currently the tax stands at $0.145 per gallon so the increase will put the total government take at close to forty cents on every gallon of gas.
The proponents will tell you that the roads and bridges in the Garden State are falling apart and it’s only a matter of time before we have a Minnesota-style collapse here.
Quite a morning on the air today. My day got jumpstarted by an article about State Senator Steve Oroho who has already conceded that the gas tax will be raised and wants to offset the tax with an income tax deduction. Wow. What a shell game being played by the NJ Legislature. More specifically the Republicans. I’ll get to them in a minute.
Had a great conversation with New Jersey State Senator Jennifer Beck earlier today on the morning show. It’s clear that she’s one of the few Jersey politicians who’s not afraid to speak her mind and stand up for her constituents. Our conversation ranged from Atlantic City to the Gas Tax to whether she was considering a run for Governor. Best part was that she was able to jump right into the conversation immediately as she walked in from the parking lot. No delay, no break, just a real conversation about issues impacting you.
