New Jersey’s Democrat Governor Offers Companies Ridiculous Reason For Them To Move To His State

New Jersey’s Democrat Governor Phil Murphy is trying to get businesses to move to New Jersey but his pitch to them is a bit of a stretch.

He isn’t offering them lower taxes or a business-friendly environment like you might expect.

He thinks they should want to come because of liberal political values. Does he really think this is going to work?

Bloomberg News reports:

Murphy Touts Value of New Jersey Lifestyle as Payoff for Higher Costs

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy said he is leaning on liberal Democratic values as he tries to lure companies from lower-taxed Republican states, revive the economy and win a second term.

Murphy, 64, would become the first New Jersey Democrat to be re-elected governor in four decades if he wins the Nov. 2 election. He says he’s blunted the pain of New Jersey’s highest-in-the-nation property taxes with rebates, credits and increased school aid while making college, health care and childcare more affordable.

The former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. executive says businesses want more for their money. Republican strongholds like Texas and Georgia might have lower taxes, but highly-skilled employees at film, digital and other companies want to live in states with progressive stances on abortion, voting rights and gun control, Murphy said Thursday during an interview with Bloomberg News in Newark.

“If your business model includes high value-added, highly skilled workforce, we’re on your list,” he said. “We are not going to be the low-cost state to live or work in.”

Is this guy for real?

New Jersey has a chance to vote this guy out of office next month. Will they take it?
