VIDEO: Varney and Sweeney spar over N.J. taxes on Fox Business

Sweeney suddenly agrees it’s time for “hitting the pause button,” a claim he’s made in recent days and repeated this Tuesday morning for Fox Business’s Stuart Varney.

Varney wasn’t impressed.

“Why don’t you think about cutting taxes in New Jersey. Why don’t you do that? You get more revenue if you do that,” Varney shot back.

An argument ensued with Sweeney passing the buck back to Congress.
