There's been a lot of talk in New Jersey about taxpayer-funded entitlements for public employees. Governor Chris Christie asked for and got some reforms in the areas of public workers' pension and health care payments.
Last night, during the Townsquare Media U.S. Senate Candidate forum, both Democratic incumbent Senator Bob Menendez and GOP challenger Joe Kyrillos argued that they were the better choice to fight for the middle class in Washington.
The share of the nation's income earned by the middle class has fallen to its lowest level in recent decades. It's been surpassed by affluent earners as median wages stagnate and wealth concentrates at the top in a relatively weak economy.
Maybe it's support for the "Occupy Wall Street" protests or maybe Garden State voters just want to see the rich pay more, but they favor a millionaire's tax increase by a better than two-to-one margin in today's Quinnipiac University poll. They also don't seem to mind if Governor Chris Christie continues to put the squeeze on state workers to help deal with what promises to be another tough budget year.
