    Tax breaks are always suspicious. Who do they really benefit. People dont get upset for keeping the tax rate the same – they get upset for increasing tax rates. Our schools barely have any money. I wonder where they pull money out of if taxes are lowered.

    Lets see. Floridians pay no income tax, a sales tax rate that’s chicken feed compared with NJ, have better weather, but worse schools. Us poor saps in Jersey live in the most densely populated state in the union, pay higher sales taxes, income taxes, a commuter tax if you work in NY, have pretty good schools, unless you live in Newark or Trenton, and have a Deficit about matches the net worth of our Governor (about $ 12bil)…No violins wailing here, guys. Enjoy the lifestyle, and use the tax savings to send your kids to Parochial Schools
