Wisniewski Statement on the Signing of S2937

Trenton - New Jersey Democratic State Committee Chairman John Wisniewski issued this statement following the signing of pension and benefit legislation by Governor Christie:

"The legislation signed into law today does not fix the problems of our state and merely shifts the burden for solving them onto the backs of the middle class families who were not responsible for creating them," said Wisniewski. "The fact is, a vast majority of Democrats in the Senate and Assembly opposed this legislation.

"If the Governor is so interested in shared sacrifice and working in a bi-partisan manner, he should support the Democratic budget proposals that help restore the cuts he has made which have led to increased property taxes, unemployment rates higher than the national average and compounded burdens on New Jersey's middle class. As Chairman of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee, I would welcome this kind of meaningful bipartisan effort to correct the course for our state."
