JC won't have a mass school shooting because the perp knows they'd be taken out by students in a Chilltown second.

30% of Ferris kids don't graduate. They should have been in the library.

Of course the corporations who pay all the taxes will keep the bulk of the returns. And not only pay higher wages, pay bonuses, and increase 401k matches-but invest in expansion and increase dividends. This ain't Venezuela.

Just think of it this way-they're not getting the lions share, but they're getting more than Obama delivered. MAGA!

I guess all the workers who received bonuses that their CEO's said came from tax reform didn't happen.

But they did. Oopsie.

Tony, Obama was blaming Bush right up to his last day in office. His 'signature' healthcare program didn't get a single Republican-Democrats put exactly what tbey wanted in it (even if it had to be passed to know what was in it). So they own the disaster it's turned out to be. "Like your plan and doctor"?

As far as job creation and tax relief under our President spend a minute and do some research-many CEOs credit Trump and his policies for the surge-including the manufacturing jobs Obama said would never return. Are you telling me the new jobs in the steel industry had anything to do with Obama?


JCRider, yes you may not be in the 80% getting tax relief-but with that real estate tax you're paying obviously you own a valuable home. SALT deductions favored high tax states with bloated spending-hopefully having this go away will cause second thoughts about wasteful spending. You're just going to have to pay your fair share, like Murphy is asking the well to do in NJ.

Re: Jersey City Council to introduce $587 million budget with zero tax increase

Any NJ who pays sales tax, or takes Uber, or who uses or rents with Airbnb . . . But at least you're all understanding who pays for $500 million a year of JC school costs.

And again, the 3% who pay 2/3 of NJ income taxes don't live in Abbot Districts mostly. And 1/3 of JC, and other towns like Elizabeth, are UEZ zoned-where the sales tax is halved, reducing NJ tax coffers!

And NJ.com noted today that the top 3% earners pay an incredible 2/3 of NJ income taxes! Wanna take a guess where those people live? Not Newark, JC, Camden, or Paterson.

JC pays for 17%. Newark 11%. East Orange 9%.

Millburn, Mendham, Livingston, Kinnelon all cover 86%. Princeton, 79%. Bernards, 74%.

NJ is Robin Hood, taking from the rich and funding schools like JC that overspend and underdeliver. Of course the suburbs fund it, although the check gets washed through Trenton.

BS. All if the companies hiring are stating it's because of optimism and regulations that encourage growth.

As far as healthcare-what happened to Obama and his $2,500 per family savings? Talk about shiny penny. Move out of the way, if you don't want to ride the train steamrolling towards America becoming great again!

Tony, you're unaware that 80% of taxpayers are keeping more of their money? Or that job growth is exploding, with black and Latino unemployment is at record lows? Wow, if that happened with a Democrat you'd be over the moon!

The ultra rich get more $ back because they pay more in, isn't that obvious? You can't count the 47% who pay no Federal income tax and complain they get nothing back from the nothing they put in, lol.

The Wall St Journal yesterday noted that AFSCME in Florida has almost 50,000 workers, but only 1,369 dues paying members. Many states are enacting laws requiring union recertification-when this happened in Wisconsin AFSCME lost 54% of its members in one year. Janus vs AFSCME will be huuuuge.

Dolomiti JC already has an airbnb tax surcharge. Vaping isn't great but it's better than tobacco. NJ legal weed is opposed by some NJ Democrats in the Statehouse and is far from a done deal. Murphy isn't putting a cent more than Christies plan. Murphy's 'free community college' has now been rolled back to low income families. His $ for universal preK fall far short.

Sales tax-regressive. Airbnbb tax-bad for homeowners. Pot tax won't happen anytime soon. Vape tax-way to hurt those trying to kick nicotine. Millionaire tax-not sure that will fly. Carried interest/hedge tax reform-ok with that.

Not renewing the arbitration cap-ouch for taxpayers, along with letting the municipal 2% cap slide.

Many of his numbers don't add up, and with all these giant tax additions not a single penny will go to pensions beyond what Gov Christie had planned!

One and done.

What cracks me up is both DTJC and residents of other wards arguing over people paying their 'fair share', while being supported by suburban taxpayers to the tune of $500 million a year to support JC schools.

Tbird, AFSCME Iowa has only 29% dues paying members, that's why they're fighting this all over-no mandatory dues in Iowa.

JP, in 2017 all other NJ state unions agreed to small changes in plan coverage, NJ Teachers Union refused. The result was their plan costs went up 8.4% vs 3.4% for the other unions.

Janus vs AFSCME can't be decided soon enough. Gov Murphy hiring, then firing Paula White, as Asst Commissioner for the State Board of Education (a well qualified black woman, natch), because the NJEA didn't like her stand on charters-well, it's time to fix that.

Jeez, Obamacare itself lists four levels-bronze, silver, gold, and platinum. NJ teacher plans are platinum; Gov Christie said he could fund the pension gap if the public sector unions would drop to gold plans.

JC schools aren't underfunded when they spend 25% more per student than the state average.
