Kyrillos decries “Democrat socialist agenda” behind minimum wage push

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

State Senator Joe Kyrillos (R-13), the erstwhile BFF of Chris Christie and former NJGOP U.S. Senate candidate, isn’t exactly renown for conservative firebrand impulses.

The crazy-stupid Democrat $15 minimum wage push must’ve brought it out in him. I’m glad for it.

“New Jersey’s constitution shouldn’t be used as a tool to execute a national Democrat socialist agenda,” Kyrillos declared in a fiery statement obtained by Save Jersey. “We should instead have a thorough discussion about increasing the minimum wage it should be done in a collaborative manner by elected officials. That’s our job.”

“People in New Jersey’s private-sector workforce — the middle class — already suffer because of this state’s noncompetitive tax structure and high costs on employers and families. Mandating 79-percent private-sector wage hikes will only add to the burden and force businesses to cut jobs or relocate elsewhere,” he added.

Keep it up, Joe! We need more fire. A LOT more.

BTW- Senator Kyrillos is currently the co-sponsor of S-349, legislation intended to alleviate the income tax burden for New Jersey’s middle-class retirees and repeal the death tax; New Jersey’s tax climate has driven $19 billion in taxable income from the state between 2004 to 2014 while Democrat majorities raised taxes 115 times over roughly the same period.
