    Politicians can't agree on a budget. Deadline was July 1. Gov Corzine closed everything, but non-essential personel like prison guards. The Gov. wants to raise the sales tax and the rest want to find other means of raising revenue.

    It was funny when Candid Camera closed Delaware. They would not let anyone in unless someone left.

    To keep the casinos honest. The casinos are monitored by state employees.

    Corzine wants to raise the sales tax from 6% to 7% statewide and he is holding onto $1 BILLION in property taxes and, doesn't trust the competition that it will used to ease the budget shortfall!there is no trusting down in Trenton,so the people will get the hit.

    On the plus side, there was no traffic due to road construction

    Gotta love this state!
