Steve Sweeney joined New Jersey 101.5's Eric Scott for "Ask the Senate President" at 7 p.m. on Tuesday — saying it's time New Jerseys start to question how much government they really want.

In the tradition of New Jersey 101.5's long-running "Ask the Governor" series, the program gave residents the chance to ask one of the state's highest-ranking officials their questions — about policy, politics or their day-to-day struggles with government.

Murphy finds himself at odds with fellow Democrat and new Gov. Phil Murphy, with the latter pushing for several new taxes to support an ambitious budget full of progressive priorities. Sweeney, in the studio Tuesday, conceded he too has pushed for tax increases in the past — but said as New Jersey residents reach a breaking point, they'll need to consider what sorts of services they really want and need.

Watch the full program above.
