So I'm out of the studio for a couple days...and the gas tax makes it's ugly return.

The big issue today is that there are reportedly many Republican legislators who are considering voting to over-ride the Governor's expected veto of the tax.  At least the Democrats are being honest, they campaign on revenue and higher taxes.  But the GOP?  They ask for your votes by proclaiming that they will be the strong voice of the people opposing further taxes on our already over-taxed citizens.

It's gotta stop.  As Jersey Joe Piscopo put it on the show this morning, #StopIt.  You're right Joe, how many more people and businesses need to leave the Garden State before the politicians do something to improve the economy and cost of living here?  Enough is enough.  #NoGasTax.

Call your Republican legislators and tell 'em to get a backbone and vote against the tax.
