NJ Democrats Visit Family’s Home to Push Tax Cut Plan

New Jersey Assembly Democrats say their plan to cut property taxes would provide greater relief to average homeowners than a competing income tax cut plan from Republican Gov. Chris Christie.

Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald and Assemblymen Dan Benson and Wayne DeAngelo were at the Hamilton home of Alicia and Domingo Castellano on Wednesday to tout their plan.

The Democrats say their plan would benefit 95 percent of households in the state and provide between $1,600 and $2,000 a year to the average family. Christie’s plan would disproportionately benefit the wealthy, they say.

But a Christie spokesman says the plan has no chance of becoming law. The Republican governor disagrees with paying for the cuts by reinstating an income tax surcharge on the wealthy, as called for in the plan.
