Ep. 25 – So On And So Forth w/Cousin Carmine 4: NJ Gov. Phil Murphy to Usher in Progressive Era

Cousin Carmine is back with Jeff and Tony to discuss NJ’s new Governor, Phil Murphy, who was inaugurated on January 16, 2018. Murphy brings his 23 years of “experience” working for Goldman Sachs, and a stint as Ambassador to Germany during Obama’s presidency (Obama gave Murphy lots of juice when he supported his campaign against Republican Candidate Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno).

Some of Murphy’s stated agenda: social justice, equal pay for women, a $15 minimum wage, legalized recreational marijuana, immigration reform, tougher gun laws, and making NJ the California of the East.
