Budget showdown begins

From the Star Ledger:

Christie’s new budget could have drastic effect on NJ residents

Once Gov. Chris Christie unveils his new budget plan for New Jersey in a Statehouse speech tomorrow, two big issues that have dominated Trenton will likely take center stage: taxes and retirement benefits for public workers.

The Republican governor and his allies have suggested cutting taxes and have hinted that public workers may be asked again to pay more toward their retirement benefits.

But Democrats who control the Legislature have balked at the talk of tax cuts and further pension changes, arguing that the state cannot afford to lose tax revenue because it is strapped for cash to pay its bills as it is. And public workers have given up too much already, they add.

Regardless of what happens, the new budget could have a drastic effect on New Jersey residents. The cost of education, health care and transportation programs is set to explode by billions of dollars over the next four years — and not enough money is coming in to keep them afloat.

The public employee retirement benefits issue has emerged again even though a series of changes in 2010 and 2011 raised the state retirement age to 65 and shifted more pension and health care costs to public workers. In return, the state agreed to pay larger sums into their retirement funds every year after many years of paying nothing at all.

Christie said recently that those state payments — rising to $2.4 billion this year just for the pension fund — severely limit his ability to accomplish other goals, such as longer school days in New Jersey.

“We need to have the conversation now about further changes to our pension system,” Christie said in his State of the State speech last month, sparking angry rebukes from unions and Democrats. “If we do not choose to reduce our soaring pension and debt service costs, we will miss the opportunity to improve the lives of every New Jersey citizen, not just a select few.”

  5. Street Justice says:

    We the people of the State of New Jersey there hereby sign this petition to “RECALL NJ SENATOR STEPHEN SWEENEY.” The people of New Jersey deserve better, under a decade of failed policies and leadership New Jersey is in a massive decline:

    – The highest property taxes in the USA.
    – The 2nd highest Income Taxes in the USA.
    – The most expensive roads per / mile.
    – Failed policies on crime.
    – The city of Newark NJ had the most murders in 2013 ever recorded.
    – Essex county had a record 475 Car Jackings in 2013 the most ever recorded.

    Instead of focusing on fixing the NJ economy which is currently a mess with unemployment in the upper 25th percentile in the USA – he instead has been focusing on prioritizing gun-control legislation in back room deals; in a state where the right to carry is already denied to average citizens.

    Source: http://www.bls.gov/web/laus/laumstrk.htm

    If Sweeny was truly interested in preventing crime and madmen from using GREATER THEN 10 bullets at one time, then he should add a mandatory 1 year sentence for each bullet used to commit a crime above 10 rounds – and exclude acts of self defense. Clearly, the purpose of his legislation was NOT TO PROTECT THE GENERAL PUBLIC, IT WAS TO DISARM THE GENERAL PUBLIC

    Recommended Formula:

    {+1 mandatory year added to a jail sentence:
    if > 10 bullets used to commit a criminal act}

    – Now that’s just common sense gun legislation which targets the right people i.e. THE CRIMINALS.

    Under Sweeney’s currently proposed legislation, a criminal who uses 2 separate 10 round magazine gets NO ADDITIONAL PUNISHMENT (he must think that’s okay) versus – a criminal act which uses 20 bullets will result in a criminal getting an additional 10 years of incarceration (+10 year mandatory sentence = 20 – 10 maximum new threshold). This solution targets the problem New Jersey is facing today; versus Sweeney’s fantasy legislation meant to solely appease his constituents and the left leaning media; based on an event which has never occurred in over 225 years in the State of NJ – which already has the strongest anti-gun laws in the USA.

    Lies, Lies & Exploitation:

    Nobody is buying your lies Sweeney, there hasn’t been a single mass shooting in the state of NJ since it was founded on December 18, 1787 – so stop exploiting the victims of the Newtown CT shootings by parading them throughout the State of NJ like hand puppets. Your behavior is disrespectful to those who lost lives, you have no honor for the victims of this heartless tragedy. Sweeney exploiting victims is despicable and reprehensible behavior.

    Let’s send a strong message to the New Jersey State Legislators by signing this petition and let them know you are feed up their failed policies on social, economic, and crime statistics.

    State Senator Stephen Sweeney has held office for over a decade and now resides as the NJ Senate President and has now taken to closed door non-public hearings on issues which seriously will affect all people in the state of NJ.

    We the people of NJ demand a voice in ALL NEW LEGISLATION WHICH IS PROPOSED; and therefore sign this petition to RECALL STATE SENATOR PRESIDENT STEPHEN SWEENEY OF NEW JERSEY.

    SIGN THE NEWEST PETITION:

    At a certain point, when you raise tax rates, you actually decrease overall revenue due to decreased economic activity. I don’t know for sure if we’ve passed that point but I suspect we passed it a long time ago…

    It’s more like paying an extra 250K to trade down. The houses that are sitting are absolute sh1t or in a sh1t location. When there’s an ocean of f.ucked bag holders and no inventory, that’s the deal. So, trading “up” will only happen when the market is allowed to clear out on it’s own. I’ll know it’s arrived when a house listed in the upper 5s, lower 6s actually has some “wow” factor.

    New Jerseyans who moved out of state took $15.7 billion in income from 2000 to 2010
    Monday, September 2, 2013 Last updated: Monday September 2, 2013, 4:37 PM
    BY KATHLEEN LYNN
    STAFF WRITER
    The Record
    Print | E-mail New Jerseyans who moved to other states took a net total of $15.7 billion in income with them from 2000 to 2010, according to a new tax map from the non-partisan Tax Foundation.

    That meant they weren’t spending that money, or paying taxes on it, in the Garden State.

    But the loss in population and income was more than offset by births and the influx of immigrants to New Jersey, which has historically been an immigration gateway. And its household incomes remain among the highest in the nation.

    For decades, more people have moved out of New Jersey to other states than the reverse. Starting in the 1970s, “the nation’s population and job growth increasingly shifted to the Sun Belt states of the South and West,” according to Rutgers economists James Hughes and Joseph Seneca, who have studied the issue. In a 2007 Rutgers report, the economists wrote that in 1970, the mid-Atlantic states of New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania accounted for 18.3 percent of the nation’s population; by 2006, they accounted for 13.5 percent.

    One big reason has been retirement to Florida and other warm-weather states. Other factors are the state’s high cost of living, especially high housing costs and property taxes; and faster job growth in other states, which was “a magnet for young people,” Hughes said last week.

    Mass taxes worse than NJ? Not seeing that.

    Mass. caps property taxes and requires voter overrides to go over a certain threshold. On a valuation basis, NH is worse. Cannot speak to Cali but they had Prop. 13 decades ago and I don’t know that it ever got repealed. We all know about NJ’s worst-in-the-nation property taxes.

    On income taxes, Mass. has a flat 5.2% (it has been around 5% forever). NJ has progressive taxation with a top rate of nearly 9%. And they want to raise it further.

    For 2010 (last year avail), Tax Foundation ranked NJ 2nd worst and Mass 4th worst for state and local tax burdens per capita (DC should be 4th but it isn’t a state). Cali was sixth. NY was 3rd. For burdens on overall income, NJ was second worst, Mass was 8th worst. (I use Tax Foundation’s (TF) reports because they provide blended data that measures all state and local taxes).

    For business taxation rankings for 2013, TF shows Mass. came in at 22nd. NJ was 49th.

    So I’m not seeing how NJ is a tax haven when compared to Massachusetts.

  22. Comrade Nom Deplume, Guardian of the Realm says:

    I had a question raised about whether the anons and Fabians could be thwarted on Second Amendment grounds by the formation of local militi@s. The theory being that if the Progressives (f.k.a. soc1alists) finally got their SCOTUS judges and repealed Heller, towns and counties can fight back by simply creating militi@s and enrolling all of their gun carrying citizens. Thus, in order to dis-arm the populace, the entire Second Amendment would have to be repealed (or a federal judge would have to declare the militi@ to be a sh@m, which has important implications for federalism).

    He doesn’t have the capacity or thought process to think assimilate facts and make coherent decisions. Instead he’s going to rely on instinctive decisions and seek reinforcement. I don’t know what tradition his learning process derived from, but there’s no hope for him.

    Personally, I’d like to get the progressives and reactionaries in a field together to fight it out for good and all. Would be a bit one-sided though since the right would have nearly all the guns.

    That was based on an analysis of the effective tax rate figures. We don’t know what the actual number is.

    But we do know what Warren is paid: $100,000. Oh sure, he makes a lot more, but that is his earned income, taxed at marginal rates.

  64. Comrade Nom Deplume, Guardian of the Realm says:

    [66] redux

    And there are a boatload of reasons why Warren’s effective tax rate is 17%. First, nearly all his income is unearned and taxed anywhere from top marginal rates to zero. Second, he gives a boatload of it away and gets massive tax deductions. Third, many rich people in his position don’t actually get paid–they borrow against their wealth to maintain their lifestyle and when he dies, the BH stock securing the loans pays it off.

    I could go on but to close this gap and make Warren pay his “fair share”, you have to elminate charitable tax deductions, raise rates on muni bond interest, long term cap gains and qualified dividends, and tax “imputed” income on money borrowed. And that is just for starters.

    “I have a 41-year track record of investing excellence,” Mr. Gross told Mr. El-Erian, according to the two witnesses. “What do you have?”

    “I’m tired of cleaning up your s—,” Mr. El-Erian responded, referring to conduct by Mr. Gross that he felt was hurting Pimco, these two people recall.

    Home prices rise more than forecast in December
    REUTERS — 2 MINUTES AGO
    (Reuters) – U.S. single-family home prices in December rose slightly more than expected from the previous month, a closely watched survey showed on Tuesday.

    The S&P/Case-Shiller composite index of 20 metropolitan areas gained 0.8 percent on a seasonally adjusted basis. A Reuters poll of economists forecast a rise of 0.6 percent.

    The 20-city composite index rose 13.4 percent year-on-year.

    “The S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index ended its best year since 2005,” David M. Blitzer, chairman of the Index Committee at S&P Dow Jones Indices, said in a statement.

    “However, gains are slowing from month-to-month and the strongest part of the recovery in home values may be over.”

    The 10-city composite index also rose 0.8 percent in December on a seasonally adjusted basis.

    On a non-seasonally adjusted basis, the monthly 10-city gauge was unchanged while the 20-city measure dipped 0.1 percent.
