The proposed spending plan is "really a disaster for New Jersey."

Published on May 25, 2017 in Tax and Budget

NJTV News last night focused on the impact that President Trump’s proposed budget would have on New Jersey, and turned to New Jersey Policy Perspective Vice President Jon Whiten to help explain some of the human impact.

“The Trump budget is really a disaster for New Jersey and for residents across the state,” Whiten told Michael Aron. “It slashes assistance for health care 1.6 million New Jerseyans rely on. It slashes assistance for food and nutrition 900,000 New Jerseyans rely on. It completely eliminates assistance for home heating 800,000 New Jerseyans rely on, and really the list goes on, and on, and on and on.”
