Greg Abbott Trolls Chris Murphy

Posted April 18th, 2018 by Iron Mike

The contrasts in leadership and vision couldn’t be more stark;   New Jersey is governed by a 21st Century Progressive – Chris Murphy – whose priorities include the magic $15/hr minimum wage and illegal immigrants – despite his state ranking 50th economically….

So Texas Governor Greg Abbott – who is rabidly turning Texas into an economic powerhouse,  – just issued an invite to the tax slaves of NJ – to come to Texas for a better future.

Abbott ran an op-ed in a New Jersey paper:

“I’d like to throw a lifeline to businesses and families throughout New Jersey who are looking for greater economic opportunity and relief from high taxes.  Come to Texas and be a part of our economic success story.  In Texas, we’re focused on lowering taxes,  not raising them.  We believe that free enterprise, not top-down government policies,  is the key to a prosperous economy.”

“Texas and New Jersey are on two different paths.  While Governor Murphy is trying to raise taxes,  we’re focused on lowering taxes and growing the economy.  I encourage companies and people throughout New Jersey to come to the Lone Star State and be a part of our success story.”

“Gov. Murphy is calling for a $2.7 billion increase in the state’s previous budget,  the majority of which will be funded by higher taxes.  These tax hikes include raising the sales tax and applying that tax to everything from ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft to online room booking. It also includes raising income taxes on anyone making more than $1 million.  This tax hike would only exacerbate the economic woes for a state whose tax burden and cost of living are already among the highest in the nation.”

“The first thing Garden Staters will notice when they come to our state is that unlike New Jersey, Texas does not have a state income tax.  But it doesn’t stop there.  Since I was elected Governor we have cut taxes in the Lone Star State by nearly $4 billion.”

Governor Murphy won his election last year largely because Chris Christie’s 8 years in office seemed to be one clumsy move after another,  leaving his Lt Governor on shaky ground.

Voters wanted change,  and many voted for the Progressive (communist) Murphy as an anti-Trump gesture.  Gleefully, – Murphy just presented his budget….

Governor Murphy’s Budget Plans include raising the minimum wage to $15/hour,  – with an immediate bump to $11/hour (at 32:30)

During 2017 he campaigned on an Office of Immigrant Protection:

Does it strike you that in a state as BROKE as New Jersey,  – with large populations of unemployed Black citizens in New Jersey’s inner cities,  – that the last thing a governor needs to be doing is catering to poor illegal immigrants – with TAXPAYER MONEY?

But then,…we’ve long suspected that a degree of insanity (or at least a detachment from reality) is a prerequisite for any liberal politician.

By contrast, here is Texas Governor Greg Abbott – dealing with FACTS on the GROUND along the Mexican Border.

As for the economy down in Texas,  listen to Greg Abbott:


So Murphy tweets back to Abbott – “Back off from our people…” as he doubled down on socialism.

If you missed this in the news,  – it’s because nobody gives a shit what Murphy does or says.
