Star-Ledger Highlights Democrat's Hypocrisy On Income Tax
The paper also managed to point out the hypocrisy of Assemblyman Reed Gusciora for blaming New Jersey’s 57¢ return on tax dollars on President Bush, rather the Democrat controlled New Jersey congressional delegation.
Assemblyman Reed Gusciora, D-Princeton Borough, criticized President Bush for the 57 cents New Jersey gets back for every $1 it pays in federal tax money. That ranks the state last in the nation, but states with higher per capita incomes pay more in federal taxes because the income tax is progressive.
Gusciora didn't blame the state's Democrat-dominated congressional delegation, most notably senior Sen. Jon Corzine, the Democratic nominee for governor. Gusciora also forgot to lambaste President Clinton. The state's federal return ranked at the bottom during his administration, too.
