Wisniewski: Democrats Budget Provides Relief for Middle Class Families

If Shared Sacrifice is more than a talking point, Christie will support Democrats budget

Trenton - New Jersey Democratic State Committee Chairman John Wisniewski issued this statement following the passage of the Democrats balanced budget that restores many of Chris Christie's cuts and provides relief for middle class families:

"Despite this Governor's continued demagoguery of middle class families, this Democratic budget restores funding for New Jersey's most glaring areas of need," said Wisniewski.

"This budget fully funds our schools, provides support for our seniors and protects our most vulnerable residents. Not only does this budget abide by the court's ruling to fund New Jersey's schools, it provides additional support for suburban districts that have suffered under Christie's cuts.

"If shared sacrifice is anything more than a talking point for Chris Christie, he will support our Democratic efforts to provide relief from higher taxes for New Jersey's middle class, just one of the many byproducts of Christie's irresponsible budget cuts. With a clear majority of residents supporting meaningful shared sacrifice, I hope the Governor will learn from the past mistakes and join with Democrats."
