(TRENTON) - Assembly Majority Leader Lou Greenwald (D-Camden/Burlington) released the following statement Tuesday on Gov. Chris Christie's budget address:
"In his address today, the Governor decried political partisanship while at the same time giving a Republican stump speech that failed to address New Jersey's sky-high 9.6 percent unemployment rate and property taxes that have increased on his watch.
"The Governor's approach seems to be you're bipartisan when you agree with me but a partisan obstructionist when you disagree. New Jersey's middle-class needs real solutions, not just endless blame games.
"We heard a lot of crowd-pleasing one-liners today. What we didn't hear were real solutions to our state's unemployment crisis or the net property tax burden that has increased over 20 percent in the past three years."
