“Gentleman Jim” Florio Plays the Class War Card

-By: I.M. Windee

With the epic financial disaster that New Jersey government and its citizens are facing, it is always hoped that an elder statesman rises to the occasion and provides leadership, albeit from the armchair.  Alas, such is not the case at least with formver 1-term governor Jim Florio.

In an Asbury Park Press article on Sunday, August 14, Mr. Florio regurgitates the typical liberal bromide to correct government’s fiscal irresponsibility.  Of course, he did not come out and state such directly, he merely hinted in Clintonesque-manner that the burden “appears to be on those who benefited most from policies of the recent past…”  It doesn’t take a Kremlinologist to figure out he means that group of people with a seemingly endless well of money: “the rich”.  Never mind that such people are taxed to the teeth here on “Planet Jersey” and are leaving the state to avoid a crushing tax burden.

It must be noted that this is the same wealth transfer expert that brought the New Jersey heavy truck industry to its knees with a sales tax before the people of New Jersey revolted and the legislature repealed it in 1990.  Perhaps some people, even 1-termers, never learn from their mistakes.
