NEW JERSEY (OCN) — Assembly Democrats have scheduled a vote on Monday to override Gov. Christie’s reckless veto of the millionaires’ tax and according to reports, it is not going to be easy as two-thirds of the legislature needs to support the override and stand up against Gov. Christie’s “Leave No Millionaire Behind” budget.
Right now, the Governor’s disaster of a budget relies almost entirely on dangerous cuts to New Jersey schools, health care, transit, parks and libraries. What’s worse, the only people it doesn’t ask to share in the sacrifice are the ones who can most afford it.
Monday’s vote is an important test of whether New Jersey’s representatives will stand with Governor Christie and his wealthy supporters or with the working families of the State of New Jersey.
As today is Friday, now is the time to speak up and tell legislators if you want a budget that protects your services instead of one that protects the pocketbooks of the wealthy.
