Rep. Tom MacArthur, R-3rd Dist., the only New Jersey member of Congress to support the measure, welcomed the news that some firms are giving new-found dollars back to workers.
“Congressman MacArthur is pleased to see the tax reform bill is already benefitting workers,” spokeswoman Camille Gallo said. “Despite what partisan groups and some in the media would like New Jerseyans to believe, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will provide real tax relief for over-burdened families.”
Rep. Josh Gottheimer, D-5th Dist., said the tax law hurts New Jersey.
“Cutting corporate tax rates to help American businesses grow was long overdue, but by gutting the state and local tax deduction, the tax hike bill stuck Jersey with the tab — and put us at a competitive disadvantage to moocher states,” he said.
“Our taxes are headed up and property values are headed down, Other states, like Florida, are already trying to lure away our businesses and jobs.”
