POLL: NJ Taxpayers Want Property Taxes Cut First

They'd prefer Gov. Christie propose a property tax cut.

More New Jersey taxpayers would prefer to see property taxes cut than income taxes, according to a newly released Rutgers-Eagleton poll.

While 52 percent of state residents support Gov. Chris Christie's proposal to cut income taxes by 10 percent across the board, 75 percent say they would rather see property taxes reduced before income taxes. 

The poll also showed that most voters overestimate how much an income tax cut would save them per year. While most voters think they would save $750, that's not quite the case. A taxpayer making $50,000 would save just under $100 per year and someone making $100,000 would save about $275 per year.

There needs to be reform. I suggest you keep the system that allows people to retire but they can't collect their pension until age 62 when they are first eligible for SS. Of course this needs to be phased in over a period of time you should not screw the people who have been working for years under a certain assumption it would not be fair. There are solutions to issues we just need give and take on both sides. The most pressing reform is really within our political system we need to address political contributions and special interest groups. It needs to be made clear that organizations do not have the same rights and privileges as citizens. This does not mean they have no rights there just needs to be limitations on their influence in the political system.

Joe: first of all, why the profanity? You're a typical rude neo-con, with no heart and a small brain. Second, thank you for illustrating a standard tactic that tiny-brained folk utilize: jumping to conclusions so you can rant on your preconceived agenda. Where did I mention incompetent teachers? Have you really bought into the "teachers and cops are the cause of society's ills" rhetoric? Hahahaha! Tell me the one about Obama being a secret Muslim next. Hahahaha! You tin foil hat wearers are always entertaining. Rant all you want, Joey. Unions aren't going away anytime soon and there isn't a thing you can do about it. Have fun with your hate, but be careful; it's bad for your health to carry all that poison around with you.

Just as I thought. Most bullies fold when they get called out.
