The Corzine administration thinks New Jersey is not overtaxed.
From their own lips:
New Jersey Treasurer David Rousseau answer to this simple question, posed by Assembly Republican Budget Officer Joseph Malone (R-30) last week:
JM: In your observation, do you feel New Jerseyans are overtaxed?
Rousseau recognizes that we have the largest real estate taxes in the country but still does not think we’re overtaxed.
That’s what happens when politicians see you, the tax payer, as a blank check.
