After being a bit rough on my friend Declan O'Scanlon over the past few weeks for his failure to show up and vote on the last gas tax proposal in the Assembly, Declan joined me on air his morning to talk about why he thinks the proposed gas tax is such a necessity for New Jersey.

Declan's #DigginIn but would not commit to you that he'd vote against new taxes.  It would be nice to get the politicians on board with the very simple but smart plan proposed by our friend Senator Jennifer Beck to cut billions from the government health care burden.

Maybe a cut to the pensions for former public official convicted of official misconduct?  We found $700 Million in the current budget to cut over time.  Until the legislature gets their head in the game there should not even be a discussion of ANY new taxes.  #NoGasTax
