Why Corzine should not be reelected

Rate this topic

6 posts in this topic

How about a list as to the reasons why Corzine should not be reelected. Nothing pro-Christie, nothing anti-christie, no personal attacks, no smears, even try and limit the Republican and Democrat mumbo jumbo.

 

List something Corzine and his administration has done directly or indirectly that makes you feel that he should not be reelected.

 

1) Payroll taxes have increased on small businesses to the point where my company had to lay-off 2 hard working blue collar guys. These young guys made $400 a week and had families. Now they are living off the government teet, instead of working hard and earning their own living.

 

2) The tolls were increased in December on the parkway and too quote Corzines press sec "That money will be used to create jobs". Since the tolls were increased, unemployement has risen 2.7% in this state.

 

3) John gives pro-union rally speeches to the public workers union! The public workers union members are paid by our tax dollar. Shouldn't the governor of the state represent every NJ tax payer? Wouldn't it be proper for him to nicely turn down these speaking ops? Instead he gives fire and brimstone speached to union members, telling them he will get them the pay and beni's they deserve!?!?! Which comes out of our hide.

The payroll tax increase is going to shore up the state unemployment insurance fund. Where should Corzine get those funds from? The increase works out to about $70 per worker per year. Your company couldn't afford $70 and had to let them go?

 

Your point #2 is fallacious nonsense. There is no cause and effect presented nor is there a lack of one shown either. Your falsely implying a relationship between the two numbers. He raised tolls and unemployment continued to rise, so what? Corzine never made any claims about how many jobs would be created or that the hike would reverse the rise in unemployment. It's just as likely the unemployment rate would have risen by 5% without the increase. However there is no way to tell.

 

I think Corzine could do a better job but sorry, those two points are just not valid.

How about reducing the size of the government? Eliminating wasteful spending and government programs?
