Steve Lonegan, the State Director of the NJ Chapter of Americans for Prosperity, opposes the government sending billions of dollars to assist in the reconstruction of New Jersey. Considering the country is on a "fiscal cliff," everyone should take a step back and re-evaluate the spending before the money is mis-spent frivolously by NJ towns.

The alternative, Lonegan says, is that the government needs to be much more careful about handing out money and sadly, most residents won't even see a dime of these funds. Local officials need to be told that they are not going to get anywhere near close to the funds that they are expecting.
