“We are not dealing with a broken system,” said the governor. “This is a rigged system. This was designed by special interests for special interests.”
That’s Governor Murphy discussing the report on the EDA by the task force he appointed, as reported by InsiderNJ.
Yes, governor, it’s a rigged system alright, but the reality is that it’s New Jersey’s POLITICAL SYSTEM that is rigged by special interests for special interests. Look no further than the $2.5 million of property tax dollars and teachers’ dues that the NJEA is spending on TV ads pushing its political agenda – where the governor plays the starring role!
How is it that a special interest gets to spend millions of tax dollars (secretly, no less), and has the governor of our state appear as their pitch-man?
Talk about a rigged system!
