Dick Zimmer on Tax Reform

Republican Senate challenger


N.J. receives back only 61 cents on every federal tax dollar

Zimmer said Lautenberg's done nothing to improve the "measly" 61 cents returned to New Jersey for every dollar the state pays in federal taxes. "Sixty-one cents," said Zimmer. "If I give that to you, Senator, will you give me back a dollar? Of course you won't because it's a bad deal. And, it's a bad deal for New Jersey. We don't have to be satisfied with 61 cents we send to Washington for our taxes."

Pledged to vote against any broad-based tax increase

As a U.S. Senator Dick Zimmer will fight for the same fiscally conservative principles he has championed his entire career. When Dick Zimmer first ran for Congress, he pledged to vote against any broad-based tax increase. He kept that promise. Zimmer believes that the federal government can and should balance its budget, and should do so by cutting spending rather then raising taxes. He believes that you should keep more of your hard-earned money in your pocket.
