Christie V. Murphy Podcast Budget Battle

Last week the NJCPA IssuesWatch Podcast discussed New Jersey budget matters including this comparison:

A stat that a guest on an obscurer podcast echoed today (you may have to turn the volume up a little for this clip):

In case anyone notices that keeping a lid on spending is fairly easy when you don’t pay the big bills Chrisitie threw down the mass murderer card:

Back to the NJCPA, another stunning stat about how much extra income New Jerseyans got (some of which found its way into state coffers) that cannot be anticipated to continue:

    There really is/was a Bart janitor who made over $200,000 in one year. And a lot of police and firemen who make more than that in total compensation routinely.

    ” So you contribute $100/month and the employer contributes $2,000. Because that is the rate the public employees are scamming today.”

    Hyperbole is too nice a word, and this is but one of literally hundreds of lies the dog has spread over the last dozen years. It has openly bragged about intentionally insulting and annoying other commenters because “that’s what the internet is for” I believe that’s the definition of a troll (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

    May be he’s right, since “for some reason all his comments need to be approved”.

    May be he deserves a blog of his own.

      My comments are requiring approval because I am signed in to my WordPress account you Pompous Pig Squeak. If I log out my comments post immediately, but will not have my WordPress account profile attached, with my handsome pic🐾 … BTW Brainiac, try researching and reading up on the facts of the Public Pension Fraud for once in yoyr sad sorry life:
      ” ‘Pension pickup’: Bay Area taxpayers foot the bill for little-known perk”
      .
      To understand the hidden costs of one of California’s sweetest public employee perks, feast your eyes on Exhibit A: Alameda County’s top-paid public official, Susan Muranishi.
      .
      Not only did the county administrator rack up $462,000 in gross pay last year, and not only did taxpayers contribute an additional $118,000 to her retirement plan, they also picked up the bill for something Muranishi was supposed to pay: the $43,000 “employee” contribution to her pension.
      .
      It’s called the “pension pickup” — and like a rich uncle picking up the tab at a big family dinner, Bay Area taxpayers footed the bill for more than $221 million last year for the employee share of 63,000 public workers’ pension contributions. The practice undermines retirement rules that were designed to force employees to share the burden for their pensions. California’s pension systems require all public employees to pay roughly 8 to 10 percent of their gross pay toward their pensions through payroll deductions… However, nothing stops unions and managers from negotiating to get the “employee share” of their pension costs picked up as an extra sweetener — and many do … “People may think the employees are paying 8 percent. Well, it turns out (some) are not,” said Joe Nation, a public policy professor at Stanford University who studies California pensions… Data show that nearly 6,000 police officers, sheriff’s deputies and firefighters received pickups across the region last year, worth an average of about $5,200.


      Game Set and MATCH!

      Watched a YouTube video just yesterday with J.D. Vance, he said “Harvard is basically a hedge fund with a university attached to it” while noting that these universities pay NO TAXES, which is one reason they have huge, hundred billion dollar+, endowments… Here is that J.D. Vance Video, Harvard is a hedge fund @30:17

      Another mentions:
      “Take Away Harvard’s Nonprofit Status”
      By Annie Lowrey

      “Harvard is a real-estate and hedge-fund concern that happens to have a college attached. It has a $32 billion endowment.”
