    When the grinning nitwit says he’s “going to fix this” does that mean he’s going to do away with the outrageous Abbott funding where 60% of the state’s school funding goes to 31 school districts? Whatever he does you know the Suburban towns will get hurt by it. I have to laugh though at the quote from the woman that they voted for him because he promised a stronger and fairer New Jersey.

    Here’s what Murphy means when he says he will make things “fairer.” He will confiscate the money of hardworking people and businesses, you know, the productive members of society, and will give it to those who he feels he needs votes from. He is a disaster. Work hard for Republicans in November – it’s our only hope
