What it means to be ‘Murphy’d’ in New Jersey
Among the things Governor Murphy's done since he's taken office, he's raised the minimum wage to $15 dollars an hour, his budget includes money to provide lawyers to help those here illegally fight deportation and he promised to legalize recreational marijuana but hasn't been able to make it happen and it seems like he's taxing everything under the sun, including the rain. So what does it feel like to be "Murphy'd" in New Jersey? For example, when the governor wants to ban you from using plastic bags that you reuse over and over again for whatever reason at home, THAT'S getting Murphy'd. Here's what my social media followers came up with for getting "Murphy'd" in New Jersey:
