That’s a CRAZY idea. Thankfully, it will never come to pass.


I think it was a joke. I mean, I hope so.

Spartacus didn’t shut up about Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser, 40 years later with no corroboration or hospital/prosecutor timeline. He’s talked more about TBone than this woman. #metoo my ass when it’s about a Democratic coverup.

What did Murphy know, and when did he know it? Where are the Star Ledger polls? And did Murphy really take back the MetLife football tickets from Whiney?

Yes, it means they’ve been severely underpaying for years while people in other wards having been overpaying to save them money.

Yvonne, they pay full taxes-JC just keeps 95% and doesn’t hand over any of it to the BOE. You seem to ignore that JC homeowners are subsidized by suburban taxpayers funding their schools-and it’s totaled BILLIONS.

There appears to be a pretty cavalier attitude about the people who've lived in their homes for many decades who are now in a terrible state because of the huge tax burden which some are now facing. Try to understand what it would mean to people who are in their seventies and eighties being told: " aww, just move out or take a reverse mortgage".

It's a very emotional and terrifying prospect to have to change your whole life abruptly. Try to exhibit a little empathy. It may happen to you, your parents or a relative. Some of you don't realize what's coming down the line in Jersey City; no mercy will be shown to anyone. It will get uglier.
.

Tell that to the elderly suburban taxpayers who’ve funded billions of dollars to JC schools keeping JC’s taxes so low for decades.

Big problem with illegals living in illegally converted attics/basements, not to code. That extra money goes into the owners pockets. And JC real estate taxes pay a tiny amount of JC schools costs.

My initial reaction is that you had a sweet deal if the reval showed your fair share is 2X what you were
paying before. And at a 1.48 tax rate it’s still a bargain by NJ standards.

1. Fulop is encouraging illegal immigrants, which stresses housing and schools. Not the suburbs problem.
2. I don’t disagree about education costs. JC already spends about 25% more per student, while graduation rates far below the state average.
3. If you don’t think there is a ton of waste and corruption in HC schools I suggest you’d be wrong. It’s always easy to spend others money, in this case a half a billion dollars each and every year. Newark sucks almost twice as much-with similar educational outcomes. Uninvolved parents are the root-Union City schools are diverse too, but parents there support education with great results.

My dad pays over $30,000, as his town only gets under 12% of school costs from Trenton and they pay over 86% of its own school costs.

https://jerseydigs.com/jersey-city-pro ... -tax-rate-2018-finalized/. https://www.state.nj.us/cgi-bin/educat ... dist_code2390&maxhits=650 JC spends 678 million on education, and 79%, $528 million comes from suburban taxpayers, JC pays under 17%. That’s your benefit, and the reason why the tax rate is a bargain.

Your low tax rate compared to the average NJ tax rate is a huge benefit.

Yes, but JC taxpayers have enjoyed the benefits of having suburban taxpayers pay for educating their schoolchildren-billions of dollars. Your demand that they pay even more to cover JC charter schools is a non starter.

You can’t ignore the tax rate. JC taxpayers have a sweet deal because suburban taxpayers fund its schools for them. Asking them to fund JC charter schools is insulting and absurd.

Yvonne, the fact remains that JC taxpayers pay only 17% of the cost cost of educating its own children, while enjoying a local tax rate far less than the state average. Trying to pick the pockets of suburban taxpayers to pay more is a non starter. How about JC pay its fair share?

Yvonne, Trenton gives many suburban towns very little in school aid, not the over 80% it gives JC. And those towns pay a ton of $ in income and sales tax and see JC and Newark schools getting almost 1.5 billion each and every year. Now you want suburban towns to pay for JC charter schools? Ain’t gonna happen.

No, they’re not obligated to-JC has known for 8 years this reduction was coming, and refused to prepare a plan to address it, and also gave away Pilots during that time.

Are you saying other taxpayers pick up the cost of charter schools AND continue to fund over $400 million for JC schools??

Why not JC step up and pay its fair share of educating its own kids instead of robbing others?

But moderate GOP senators rarely have the stones to vote moderately and represent ALL of their state rather than the party line of the moment. That's why moderate GOP governors aren't nearly as bad as senators. In my lifetime I've seen many moderate R's turn hard right in their runs for POTUS, from Bush41 to Christie to Trump himself.


Of course, you’re missing the Republican Senators on the fence who may not support Judge K, va the red state Dems who may vote to confirm because they don’t want to lose their seats.
