New Jersey Governor’s Debate # 3

The best moment of the night, came in the form of a question to Jon Corzine from the independent candidate Dr. Hector Castillo. Castillo pointed out Corzine’s proposed plan to increase property tax rebates by 10% per year will only amount to $80 and asked Corzine what can people do with only $80?

It was in stark contrast to Forrester’s plan to reduce a homeowner’s total property tax bill by 30% in three years. Forrester gave the example of a 30% reduction on a $6,000 property tax bill providing an $1,800 savings to the taxpayer.

For the contrast on property tax plans alone, debate to Forrester.

Really? You don't think that the best moment of the night was the bit where Corzine was asking Forrester if his BeneCard contract in Burlington County would become illegal under Forrester's pay-to-play proposal??

Because that was my favorite bit.

Yes that was a good moment. Forrester's plan to tighten up the Pay to Play laws seeme to us to be a good idea.

But more people are probably interested in proverty tax reductions than government prescription drug savings.
A prescription drug savings program, such as the ones offered by BeneCard seems like a good idea too. Most of the government groups that use BeneCard and similar firms do so because they opt out of the more expensive State run plan.

Any way state and local government can save money were all for.

Has Doug Forrester given as much to the county party bosses as Jon Corzine? Or is it only a problem because Forreter works for a living?

I'm sure the 100 members of the U.S Senate would be flattered to know that they don't work for their 250 grand salary.

Jack,

Are you suggesting Corzine works as a Senator for a living? He paid big bucks to become a Senator.

Actually, the United States pays it's senators only $165,000. FYI.

It's absurd to say either of these guys work for "livings". They're so rich and powerful that they don't have to do another day of work in their lives and they can still make millions a year off their stock options and board positions.

We know Corzine was fired from his postion at Goldman and to save face bought himself a Senate seat. As far as we know Forrester has worked for a living and now has enough dough to enter "public service".

Jack, are you under the impression people that earn more than "x" amount are no longer actually working or earning a living?
