Christie not doing enough to ease property tax burden on N.J. residents

In response to the governor's budget proposal Tuesday, Democrats, who control the Senate and Assembly, say the governor should forgo the income-tax cut and redirect that revenue to offset New Jerseyans' property taxes, a plan they say is fairer.

They claim that Christie is playing with budget numbers to make himself look good and is not doing enough to reduce the property-tax burden on New Jersey residents. Under Christie's proposal, $7,000 would be saved by a person making $1 million annually in 2013, but a family making $50,000 would see its taxes reduced by only about $70, according to Democrats.
