    Murphy’s clueless, ultra liberal ideas should be enough to sink him IF Kim comes out and hammers him relentlessly. As much as people may be sick of Christie they are more sick of paying these obscene property taxes. That is issue number 1, 2 and 3. Murphy is such a novice and elitist that he doesn’t realize he has no clue what is on the average guys mind. If Republicans, independents and non-ideological Democrats Come out in November he can be beaten

    The headline says “here’s what you next governor had to say about property taxes, Jersey jobs”

    Typical NJ.com misleading article short of detail, any detail on Murphy’s tax plans. Translation. Murphy is going to raise taxes at every level to show he can out-left and outspend every other democrat in America. Yet he plans on being long gone when NJ’s structural deficit, pension and collapsing health care insurance push the state into a fiscal death spiral.
    He is already cooking up his plans for 2020 either for VP or President. Have you noticed Booker greatly ramping up his pandering, press releasing grandstanding nonsense. He sees Murphy as the end of his career.
    Arco and NJ.com are too busy cashing checks from the Murphy Magic Money Tree to actually challenge him.
    Guadagno is spot on regarding taxes. She is thoughtful, smart, tough and able.

    This is the Number 1 issue and talk is cheap. School tax is the cost driver. It must become a responsibility shared among all residents, not just property owners. Base school tax on earned income so non-property owners are included. Offset the cost further, with a dedicated sales tax to catch income that is only exposed when goods/services are bought. While it could have been bolder, score one for Guadagno for at least outlining details of her plan. Murphy …. details please.
