No New Jersey Internet Tax sign now

I wish to voice my staunch opposition to your support for a new tax on New Jersey Internet users.

As Assembly Budget Chairman, it is ultimately your responsibility to provide the taxpayers of New Jersey with a responsible, balanced budget that requires government to live within its means. Since you became budget chairman in 2001, however, state spending has skyrocketed nearly 35\%, property taxes have soared, annual multi-billion dollar budget deficits have become the norm and Wall Street analysts have lowered New Jerseys credit rating to a level just above junk bond status.

In stark contrast, everyday citizens like me must work harder than ever to balance our own budgets and live within our means while New Jerseys economy remains stagnant. A new tax on internet services seems nothing more than another attempt by government to find new ways of taxing everyday citizens like me to pay for new spending and political patronage.

Despite your signed pledge Americans for Tax Reform promising you would oppose all efforts to increase taxes, you instead voted for tax increases each and every year since 2001, breaking your campaign promise time and time again.

There is currently legislation that will initiate a new tax on New Jersey Internet users, as well as increase taxes on more than 15 other goods and services (S-2628), as well as a plan to increase gasoline taxes after the November election in order to pay for another round of new government spending.

I oppose these tax increases and ask you to reconsider your support for these tax hikes and, instead, stand with everyday citizens like me.

I therefore exercise my Constitutional right to petition government for a redress of grievances by adding my name to this petition.

In doing so, I urge you in the strongest manner possible to OPPOSE THE NEW TAX ON NEW JERSEY INTERNET USERS and to use your powerful influence as Budget Chairman to urge your fellow members of the State Legislature to do the same by voting NO on S-2628 and any accompanying legislation.

(Petition signers are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to check the "make my email address available to petition author" in order to recieve updates on this proposed internet tax legislation.)

Remembering you in November,
