Maybe you just don't understand the unynrldieg problem. Yes, homeownership has been up over the last number of years, but that is not due to the fact that people have money, it's due to the fact that mortgages have been so low that it has been easy for people to buy homes putting down almost no money. However nothing like that lasts forever and there is always a piper to pay. The time has come when the bubble, except it seems in NYC, has burst and these over inflated homes with these huge mortgages just aren't worth the money and the mortgage rates aren't what they were. Also, a lot of people were living on huge bonuses that they are no longer receiving, so they are reaching, not poverty, but a state where they can no longer afford to live the lives that they have been living. This is the Republican way, it is now and it has been before, they take money that is not "theirs" and they use it for what they deem is important, this time around it has been the war, and there just isn't any more money for the war, and as they pretty much know they will be out of office, they can't do what they did before, rob the people blind. So, once again, we are in a sticky situation. I don't know where you live, but being in the Metropolitian area, I remember all too well how Florio, who was a good Governor has to take all the flack for the mess that Whitman left the state of New Jersey in. He did what he could, but it meant they had to have more taxes just to make ends meet and people saw it as a "democratic" thing instead of a smart thing.References : Was this answer helpful?

As far as I know, you don't pay taxes on money that is borrowed. What if you took out the eqtiuy from your home and asked for no pre-payment penalty? You might have a bit of a higher interest rate but you would avoid paying the capital gaines.

Pbrain, last I knew property tax was the rioesnspbility of municipalities. The only impact the state can have is to takeover tasks performed by local governments. This, of course would force the state to raise income tax. Thus setting a Democrats raise taxes rant.This shell game has gone on as long as I've been in NJ. Florio tried to clean up Kean's financial mess by raising taxes. Whitman defeated Florio on a platform to lower income taxes. She didn't do so by shrinking government however, rioesnspbility was shifted to local government thereby raising property tax. But Whitman added her own creative twist. She approved excessive budgets and truncated spending prior to year end. Whitman juggled the books until McGreevy took the reins and the cycle began anew.Corzine is now stuck with an unenviable task. The electorate is screaming for state services without use of the tax option. And in his spare time Corzine should reduce property tax which would require a tax increase. So much for your debate question.Now back to my question for you. .WHY WOULD THE GUY WHO'S AHEAD IN THE POLLS WANT AN EARLY DEBATE?and WHY WOULD THE GUY WHO'S TRAILING WANT TO POSTPONE?
