Douglas Forrester on Tax Reform

Permanent tax reduction will lead to growth

The [Bush] tax cut must be made permanent. Permanent tax reduction will benefit all New Jerseyans and it is our job to develop long-term economic growth to create budget surpluses for the future. We must work to repeal the marriage penalty tax, repeal the death tax, and make adoption credit permanent as well as IRA expansion permanent.

Strongly supports Bush tax cut & fiscal responsibility

Of course I'm for lower taxes, who isn't? I'm a strong supporter of President Bush's economic stimulus tax cut. But I'm also a realist. It's impossible to be committed to making substantial tax cuts unless you are equally committed to controlling spending, limiting debt and eliminating every penny of waste.

Wants permanent repeal of death tax

Sen. Torricelli is caught in his vacillations regarding the repeal of the death tax. On one hand, he wants to stand behind the President and make the repeal permanent. That's the right thing to do for family farms, family businesses and for New Jersey. Vote with our President by voting for families and entrepreneurs. Let hard working families in New Jersey keep the money they've made.
