It was a last attempt plea, but it didn’t work. Gov. Chris Christie spoke for nearly 20 minutes in front of the legislature, but did not move the Democratic leadership to implement a tax cut in New Jersey. Democrats say they socked away the money to do a tax cut in January, but they need to see revenue figures get better in the state before they support it. State Senator Jeff Van Drew released a statement breaking with Democratic leadership saying he supported a tax cut and would vote for it today if possible. Christie attempted to offer a deal, forget the millionaire’s tax, provide a tax cut, and Christie would reinstate the earned income tax credit that he vetoed. Democrats say they haven’t seen enough in the numbers to warrant a tax cut.
