State Assemblyman Jon Bramnick Votes "Yes" to Increase Gas Tax


 
     New Jersey state assemblyman, and Westfield resident, Jon Bramnick has said that New Jersey taxpayers want the Legislature to focus on lowering taxes but yet he recently voted to increase New Jersey's gas tax by .23 cents per gallon.
     This tax increase will cut into the budgets of New Jerseyans costing close to $1000 a year for some commuters and residents.
     Bramnick, a Republican, voted last week to increase the state's gas tax, along with state Democrats, that will hit the wallets and pocketbooks of those he had told he wanted to lower taxes for.
     This gas tax increase is the largest tax increase in 25 years, nearly 10%, since Governor Jim Florio.
     New Jersey's gas tax will now rise to 37.5 cents per gallon, elevating the Garden State from the second lowest in the United States to the seventh-highest.
    The vote to increase New Jersey's gas tax was mostly along party lines with Republicans voting against the increase, and Democrats for it.
     Westfield voters need to remember Bramnick's vote the next time he is up for re-election and vote this "comedian" (pun intended) out of office.
