Today, Assembly Democrats rejected Corzine’s plan to increse the sales tax
from 6 to 7% with 15 supporting the hike and 34 opposed. PoliticsNJ will need to correct their tally board
. The website currently shows 22 siding with Corzine, 26 supporting Roberts and one on the bubble.
The quote of the day goes to Joe Donnelly, the spokesman for Assembly Democrats. After criticism from Republicans faulting Democrats for not leading and passing a budget, Donnelly accused Republicans of partisan carping instead of helping to resolve the situation.
This, on the Sunday Democrats on the Assembly Budget Committee met behind closed doors, and did not allow Republicans in.
