Redistricting.....Why You Should Care!!!!

One Of The Decade's Most Important Political Fights In A Decade Is Under Way.

If you care about property taxes, the state's economy, all of the jobs that have been driven from the State by sky high corporate taxes, and Governor Chris Christie's ability to turn around the States finances, pay very close attention.

What Is At Stake In Redistricting Is Control Of The Legislature For The Next 10 Years.

"You're going to hear a lot of political theory and statistics," Assembly Majority Leader Joseph Cryan, D-Union, said. "But I just want everybody to keep this in mind: This exercise is going to decide New Jersey's public policy for the next decade. Make no mistake, this is really about public policy and how it gets determined. This affects every individual in New Jersey — to their neighborhood, to their block."

Why It Really Matters: A map drawn by Republicans was used in the 1990s, and the GOP controlled the Legislature for 10 years. A map drawn by Democrats was used for the last decade, and that party has controlled Trenton ever since. These maps can be drawn to protect incumbents and limit competition, block efforts to reform property taxes, or be made wildly responsive to voters' whims.

Dems Renews Effort To Raise Taxes

Christie rejects Democrats' rich tax proposal, calls it a 'one-year fix'
Governor Christie Calls The Democrats' Rich Tax Proposal, a 'one-year fix'

New Jersey’s millionaires are at the center of another budget debate between Governor Chris Christie and the Democrats who control the Legislature, every one of whom is up for re-election this year.

Democratic Legislators once again plan proposing a tax increase on those making more than $1 million a year. This time they plan on adding it to the State Budget.

Governor Christie vetoed the tax increase last year, which Democrats claimed would have restored property tax rebates for senior citizens. But to what end? 

The Governor, and rightfully so, is accusing Democratically controlled Legislature of pandering to senior citizens in an election year. He called the proposal a one-year fix that will harm the state's economy.

He reiterated his pledge to veto any tax increase, he characterized the dispute as a "philosophical difference" between himself and Democrats that want a Bigger More Expensive Government.
