As a long time resident who is fed up with New Jersey taxes, it is a frightening prospect that Phil Murphy, who has vowed to raise taxes by at least $1.3 billion and probably much more, could possibly be our next governor.  In fact, his whole platform spells doom for the entire state.  Mr. Murphy, in addition to his insane tax plan, has promised to make New Jersey a sanctuary state, legalize marijuana in the middle of a heroin epidemic, force businesses and jobs out of state, create more taxpayer-funded giveaways, and drive up the cost of goods and services with more government mandates on small businesses.  Our only hope is that all New Jersey residents who truly love their state and care about it's future come out and reject the policies of Phil Murphy that will be the death knell of the Garden State.
