Rutgers Economists Forecast Slow Economic Rebound

Senator Steve Oroho (R-Sussex, Morris, Hunterdon) called on the Democrat leadership of the Senate and Assembly to abandon plans for higher taxes in response to an economic forecast presented by Rutgers economists at a conference yesterday. At the conference, Nancy Mantell, director of the Rutgers Economic Advisory Service, stated, “New Jersey is starting to turn around, but job growth will be very slow.”

“Democrat leaders seem intent on pushing forward with tax increases on business that will stop the emerging recovery dead in its tracks, ” said Oroho. “Governor Corzine and Democrats were wise to at least sunset the destructive tax surcharges they established last year. Reestablishing them now will stifle a recovery that has just begun.”

Concerned that New Jersey residents already receive the lowest rate of return of any state on tax dollars sent to Washington, Senators Tom Kean (R-21), Steven Oroho (R-24) and Joe Kyrillos (R-13) questioned the equity of a new plan by President Obama to levy a new tax on investment income that would be borne disproportionately by New Jersey residents.

To help fund his multi-trillion dollar healthcare proposal, the President’s new plan, released on February 22, calls for the addition of a 2.9% Medicare tax on certain income, including that derived from interest, dividends, annuities, royalties and rent. This new tax would apply to individuals earning more than $200,000 and $250,000 for married couples filing jointly.
