NJ Budget Signed, But Spin Goes On in 2 Ads

New Jersey’s state budget is signed, but the spin about it is continuing.

The New Jersey Republican State Committee is airing a radio commercial bashing Democratic lawmakers for not passing a tax cut. And a coalition of liberal and labor groups has a commercial of its own criticizing Republican Gov. Chris Christie for not making millionaires pay their “fair share” of taxes.

Both ads have largely accurate facts, but leave out other facts and mix in some speculation.

Christie says Democrats rejected his call for a tax cut even though the budget they passed also calls for a tax cut.

The liberal groups’ ad says that if revenue projections are not reached, it could mean “drastic cuts” to schools and public safety, which is not especially likely.
