  • Zwicker – “investments in renewable energy”

    Amount of public money spent on fusion research, including PPL where Zwicker works – $30,000,000,000.

    Amount of commercial power above input power produced by fusion research – 0 watts.

    That’s NOT an investment, that spending public money on research that hasn’t produced anything yet.

    Zwicker – “… including expanded background checks and longer waiting periods, that could help prevent the sort of mass shootings that have occurred far too frequently in recent years.”

    Ignorant [D] talking points. Most mass shootings have been committed by individuals who passed background checks. Background checks and waiting periods cannot “prevent mass shootings.” If they did, Chicago would be a peaceful paradise instead of the Democrat-run dangerous city that it is today (2,578 shooting victims this year already).

    Let’s elect folks who actually understand the issues.

  • Here is what you get by voting [D] –

    New Jerseyans already know it to be true, but a Forbes analysis of state-by-state tax burdens places the Garden State near the top of its “WORST States for Taxes” list.

    New Jersey lands in second place, behind New York, in the comparison of state and local taxes.

    Connecticut, California, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Maryland, Rhode Island, Vermont and Pennsylvania round out the top 10, according to the Forbes report.

    The analysis compares local taxes and the effective tax rate for single people with $50,000 in reportable income, a figure Forbes said it based on the $53,046 median U.S. Household income from 2009 to 2013.

    In New Jersey, which has one of the most progressive tax structures in the country, that income tax rate is 2.54 percent, which Forbes combined with local taxes to establish a 12.3 percent state and local tax burden.

    New Jersey’s income taxes start at 1.4 percent on earnings less than $20,000 and the top marginal tax rate hits 8.97 percent on income over $500,000.

    Democratic lawmakers have tried in recent years to add a surcharge on income over $1 million to raise money for pensions, but Gov. Chris Christie has repeatedly rejected the efforts.

    Tax-and-spend is ALL that Democrats know.

  • Keep voting (D) and here’s what you get (from NJ.com/Forbes):

    New Jerseyans already know it to be true, but a Forbes analysis of state-by-state tax burdens places the Garden State near the top of its “Worst States for Taxes” list.

    ALSO: N.J. Republicans accuse Dems of obstructing property tax reform

    While the report doesn’t specify which local taxes are included (some states have local income taxes or local sales taxes), presumably New Jersey’s steep property taxes had a hand in the state’s ranking. Last year, the average property tax bill here was $8,161, while nationally only 0.2 percent of U.S. homeowners paid more than $8,000.

    New Jersey’s income taxes start at 1.4 percent on earnings less than $20,000 and the top marginal tax rate hits 8.97 percent on income over $500,000.
