WyBlog, the best thing about New Jersey since the invention of the 24 hour diner.
The nine most terrifying words in the English language are "I'm from the government and I'm here to help." - Ronald Reagan

Show of hands. Who thinks gas prices are too low?
OK, I see Chris Christie. Anyone else?
Didn't think so.
So bend over New Jersey, because he just raised the price of gasoline by 23 cents a gallon, ostensibly to fund "road improvements." Which, of course, is politician-speak for more light rail boondoggles and useless bike lanes.
And there I was blissfully unaware while rocking out at the LBI Chowderfest all weekend. (It was a blast, thanks for asking!) But I probably won't be able to afford to attend next year because all the extra money I don't actually have will be siphoned off for gas taxes.
Thanks Chris. Thanks a lot.
Oh but golly gee, he's countering with a 1/8 percent cut in the sales tax! And a bigger pension income exclusion for the geezer set.
My cup runneth over... Not.
Then, because he hadn't given enough of the store away yet, he tacked on a big bump in the Earned Income Tax Credit, which as we all know is a "refund" on taxes that weren't actually paid. But as a wise man once said, if you rob Peter to pay Paul, Steve Sweeney can always count on Paul's vote.
There's something to look forward to. Governor Steve Sweeney, the mastermind
behind Christie's capitulation. Say goodbye to the rest of your money New
Jersey. This is only his first salvo, and he's got a lot of people counting
on him to fill their pockets. None of those people are taxpayers. But that's
OK. The takers outnumber us now and they can smell the Benjamins.
