Guadagno: How NJ Dems 'Shamlessly Distort'

New Jersey Acting Governor Kim Guadagno today released the following statement in response to Assembly Democrats’ plans to hold a politically motivated hearing next Thursday regarding New Jersey senior citizens.
“Governor Christie signed a budget that doubles the homestead benefit and increases funding for the Senior Freeze property tax relief program with an estimated 59,000 new eligible seniors receiving critical relief. The Governor’s budget also continues to provide much needed prescription drug assistance to nearly 164,000 low-income seniors and those New Jerseyans living with disabilities through the Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (PAAD) and Senior Gold programs. For the Assembly Democrats to continue this series of hearings, shamefully distorting the truth as a way to play up election year politics, is a waste of New Jersey taxpayers’ time and money.”
