    That is $13.75 I could have put towards my confiscatory property tax or the insane health insurance which will cost my wife and I $29,000 in 2017 (and we are healthy) because there is no competition in NJ.

Our state motto is no longer Liberty and Prosperity- we seem to have changed it to : “I’m from New Jersey, please, tax me some more!”
