Senate president foiled by lack of Democrats showing up for work.

Can this nonsense be stopped?  We are sure, given the governor's public statements that he'll veto the bill, but can we trust him?  And either way, why do the Senate Democrats think this is a good idea?

When did we get extra money to fill federal spending gaps?  This is an outrageous attempt to saddle NJ middle class families with greater debt.  Even with a veto from the governor, we'll have a new governor in 2018.  If that governor is Phil Murphy, bills like this get passed nearly automatically.  The minority voice in the legislature will be shut out completely.  That's where we come in.

Call Senate President Sweeney (856-251-9801) and let him know that you're gonna #RememberInJune and #RememberInNovember.
