Liberal Governor-Elect of New Jersey Says He Will Use All Means "Legal or Otherwise" to #Resist New Tax Reform Law

As a friend said: Secession is your friend.

Now I quoted the "legal or otherwise" deceptively, because no, that's not what he means. I learned the trick of juicing the headline for maximum paranoid partisan impact from The Media.

He means he'll fight the tax law with a lawsuit challenging its constitutionality -- good luck with that -- or will restructure the laws in his state so that more taxes are sucked up by property taxes, which I think Susan Collins managed to get deducted from income.

Murphy, a Democrat, said on "Squawk on the Street" that New Jersey may seek to challenge in court the "legality and constitutionality" of the Republican package. In claiming "everything is on the table" to mitigate the impact of the bill, he also said state property taxes may go up.

"New Jersey has taken a backseat over the past number of years in challenging what's coming at us out of Washington," said Murphy, who takes over in January for the state's two-term Republican governor, Chris Christie. "New Jersey will ... look at all available means -- both legal and otherwise -- to challenge this [bill] or compensate for it."

If you split from the US and formed a new Socialist States of America with other blue states, you could have all the laws you like, and you could elect Barack Obama King for Life!!!!
