New Jerseyans pay, on average, $9,902 per capita to the federal government on an annual basis, Save Jerseyans. That’s a ton of dough, right?

So why did Frank Pallone (D, NJ-6) decide to close out 2014 and kick off 2015 by bragging (via a press release) about bringing $332,000 home to his district in 2014?

Only $332,000 is more like it.

“Whether a constituent is concerned about a federal policy or needs help navigating the federal bureaucracy, I want them to know we’re here to help,” said Congressman Pallone.  “I am grateful that so many residents of the 6th District have turned to us for assistance this year, especially as we continue to recover and rebuild from Sandy together.  I hope that they continue to use my office as a resource.”

Some help. Pallone’s haul works out to roughly 50 cents for every resident of his district and far less than the worst-in-the-nation 61 cents on the dollar that New Jersey typically recoups from its federal tax contributions.

  1. Th ought the same thing, just in a different way, when he posted his “brag” on his FB page that he “secured” $332,000 for his constituents and I responded: Pallone is bragging about “securing” what amounts to 50 cents for each citizen in his district. Then again, he’s had just 8 bills signed into law in 26 years in Washington (2 of which were to name post offices after someone), so 50 cents a head is actually an accomplishment for this clown.

  3. New Jersey as a whole is probably dead last in benefits received from the federal government per capita. Thanks to our Senators and Representaives who for whatever reason are never held accountable by the voters.
