NJ - still not getting it

According to this AP article right here, Amazon is considering opening two million-plus square foot warehouses in NJ and creating 1,500 or more jobs in the State.  In return they are asking for a 22 month tax holiday.

Senator Ray Lesniak is getting involved in the worst way possible.

"It's a bad deal for New Jersey, no matter what," he said. "We're giving up hundreds of millions of dollars in revenues we should be getting and we're also putting at risk jobs in our retail centers and central business districts throughout the state."
Zero might be the number of dollars in tax revenue that NJ ends up getting.  Come on Christie, get involved.
