As New Jersey Democrats Delay Propoerty Taxes Rise

Assembly Democrats Agree, Taxpayers Need Real Reform Now

Senate Republican Budget Officer Tony Bucco called on the Legislative leadership to move immediately to approve the remaining parts of the “toolkit” package that have been languishing in the Legislature:

“Last July, the Legislature moved to implement a historic two-percent property tax cap in New Jersey. In the nine months since we enacted this cap that took effect January 1, the Senate and Assembly Democrats have refused to give local officials the necessary support to meet the cap for purely political reasons,” said Bucco.

NJECPAC Government Affairs Gets Heard at Woodbridge Town Hall Meeting

NJECPAC Government Affairs Committee Member Robert Spellmon was called upon by Governor Christie at a recent town hall meeting in Woodbridge Township.

Robert asked the Governor if he had plans to do anything about the exorbitant Prevailing wage plaguing our State.

The Governor in his response said it is a "State Statute that can not be changed.........Not by this Legislature". 

The Governor left the door open by hinting that change may be coming to New Jersey when he indirectly eluded to the upcoming November 1st election by adding "At least over the next 7 or 8 months"  Watch Video Here

1,040 Health Care Law Waivers & Counting

The arguments against ObamaCare continue to grow as the Department of Health and Human Services handed out the 1,040th health care waiver this week. 

HHS Secretary
Kathleen Sebelius
For a law that was touted by the Obama Administration and entire Democrat Party as the best Social Entitlement since the financially troubled Social Security System, they are pretty quick to grant waivers from it. 

This comes at the same time Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius admits double counting money for funding of the bill after being called out by Illinois Republican Rep. John Shimkus during a budget hearing.

The large majority of the waivers are granted to labor unions to protect their Mercedes Health Care Plans, fllowed by large corporations that merely have to claim that the law would cause them to drop health insurance for their employees altogether and another waiver is born.

The entire state of Maine was granted an waiver, how you ask, Health Insurance Compaies in the state threatened to leave the state citing their inability to survive under the laws mandates.

World Crises Abound, Wheres Obama? Recommiting To Paycheck Fairness Act.

Watch Video Here
So Where was Obama when Japan is buried by an earthquake and tsunami, and may now be facing a Nuclear Meltdown, the Mideast on the verge of Civil War, and gas prices are skyrocketing?  He was on the radio reviving the Paycheck Fairness Act, followed by a leisurely round of Golf and then he was off the Reo.

Early in his term Obama rushed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act  through Congress. On the surface the bill provides basic protections against wage discrimination for women and that is how it was touted. The truth is, the law will result in business thinking twice before hiring women and risk having to defend themselves against a charge of discrimination years and even decades later. The new broad timeline to file discrimination suits will make it impossible for employers to defend themselves. Like so many laws passed by congress, the intent to fix one problem often results in the creation of new and even larger problems than what the legislation supposedly was passed to fix. 

The same concept applies to the Paycheck Fairness Act. If passed, no longer will an employer have the ability to pay based upon Merit, everyone will be paid the same. The result will be the Government taking on the role of being a union followed by millions of dollars for trail lawyers who can not wait to start filing law suits under the law even before it is passed.
