New Jersey’s Rainy Day Fund, Nearly Empty, is The Fourth Smallest in the Country
Jan 27, 2015 | No Comments

Jan 26, 2015 | No Comments

Pairing a tax hike that disproportionately hits the poor and middle class with a tax cut that mostly benefits the very wealthy would make the state’s tax system more backward. It would also push a near-bankrupt state even further to the brink by eliminating a large chunk of tax revenue with no proposal on how to replace it.
