Who owns New Jersey?

Very Interesting analysis of the effort to give New Jersey Taxpayers some relief......New Jersey has the highest property taxes in the nation. The total State and Local Tax burden is also among the highest. Gov. Corzine has promised tax relief (after he raised taxes, after he promised NOT to raise taxes) but the State Teachers Unions is fighting against any tax relief, however small. The teacher's union and the other public employee unions are VERY powerful politically in NJ as they are in all other states.....will the taxpayers get relief? My prediction is NO, the taxpayers just don't have as much clout in the New Jersey State Legislature as the unions.
