David Rebovich quotes Jon Corzine at a recent New Jersey Business and Industry Association' meeting as calling himself “a capitalist who believes in business and knows that as a state we "...are successful because we have a bright and able business community" that has given New Jersey the nations' second highest per capital income. Corzine also quipped that while he is a "progressive," he is not "foolishly liberal
Does changing the label from “liberal” to “progressive” really change anything? Well, at least Corzine understands it is the private sector that produces wealth and not the government. Now if we can just get him to understand it is not possible to tax the state into prosperity and that to make life in New Jersey more affordable taxes need to be cut and not raised.
