(Mis)Leading The Public To Higher Taxes
Paul Nelson at NJ Fiscal Folly has a good post on Governor Corzine’s budget presentation from this week’s public meetings. Nelson says, “It's not a bad presentation, but as I went through it I realized that it's a very misleading document.” Nelson notes three key problems with the presentation:
1.) It actually sugarcoats the debt problem
2.) It basically takes current programs and expense growth as a given
3.) It forces the conclusion: the only solution is higher taxes
As we previously posted, Bob from eCache attended Governor Corzine’s budget meeting at Rowan University and has written a good synopsis of the information presented in his post is More, More, More.
