Just received my 2016-17 preliminary tax bill from East Brunswick. As usual, I’m being extorted 68 percent of my total bill to support the school cartel.
I haven’t used the school system in more than 20 years. Oh, Blue Ribbon Schools keep my property values high. Baloney. Property values fluctuate according to the ebb and flow of the economy.
Top this tax extortion with the Democrats wanting to destroy the state budget by fully funding public workers’ pensions. Municipal school taxes go up to pay for gold-plated health care programs, and now the state will gouge taxpayers to fund teachers’ pensions.
And the voters keep re-electing the same people who cause this lunacy.
