Ballot Question #2 Is Dishonest


Ballot Question #2 is dishonest, even by Jersey standards. Christie Wall Street Republicans, and Sweeney/Prieto Big Union Democrats just hiked the New Jersey gas tax by 61%. They want a  “Yes” vote on Ballot Question #2 to pay back their big donors and make that tax hike permanent.

 This month’s 61% gas tax hike has nothing to do with fixing roads and bridges. It is all about bailing Wall Street banks out of bad loans to a mismanaged and insolvent politically corrupt agency.

It is not too late to let the TTF Authority go bankrupt and roll back the tax hike.
Wall Street Republicans and Big Union Democrats are afraid of that. That is what Ballot Question #2 is all about. It is designed to make the gas tax hike permanent by letting the TTF Authority borrow another $12 billion on top of the $16 billion it already owes. If voters approve this scheme, the gas tax hike will be permanent.

The first step is to vote “No” on Ballot Question #2. A “No” vote is the first step to rolling back the gas tax hike. A “No” vote means the State can’t borrow more money without voter approval. A “Yes” vote means more borrowing, and more tax hikes.
