I like to say that there is still a HUGE difference between the two major political parties. Not always enough of a difference but a very real one all the same.
Here’s another stark example with near term implications: the National Taxpayers Union (NTU) released the results of an interesting comparative analysis of the respective economic/fiscal plans set forth by Steve Lonegan (R-Bogota) and Cory Booker (D-Twitter), Save Jerseyans.
You won’t be surprised to know there’s a big difference between the candidates.
$101 billion big.
According to NTU, Booker’s proposals would add $33 billion per year to the federal budget whereas Steve Lonegan’s proposals would save taxpayers approximately $68 billion on an annual basis. And that’s just the spending; Cory Booker is also pitching $1.486 trillion in new taxes.
