Which tax is worse for NJ: the millionaires tax or the gas tax?
New Jersey's budget problem has Democrats crafting a painful game of "Would You Rather."
Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D-Gloucester) said Tuesday that a millionaires tax will be voted on by the Senate as a way to avoid making cuts to public worker pensions. Democrats have also proposed a gas tax to fund the Transportation Trust Fund.
With over $40 billion in pension debt and a near-empty TTF, this problem isn't going away. And while paying more for anything is painful consider in one of America's most expensive states, there's a chance at least one of these taxes could become law.
If it were up to me, neither tax would pass. But speaking hypothetically, I challenge you to a painful game of choosing between two evils. Which tax do you think is worse for New Jersey- one that punishes economic success, or one that skims your wallet every time you fill up at the pump?
