When a Governor Cuts Spending

The Governor of New Jersey meets with citizens at a town hall and notes an important distinction between his state and the federal government.

Mr Wade,
I LOVE this guy Chris Christie. He is really making a name for himself here in the northeast, and soon I predict nationally.

Imagine...a politican who gets in office AND ACTUALLY STARTS DOING WHAT HE SAID HE WAS GOING TO DO. Not to mention that NJ has some of the highest taxation in human history. He really inherited a mess.

He didn't win in a landslide, but he is executing his promises.

The teacher lied about her salary, which is public record (she stated 83k, she actually earns 86k), and she also gets health benefits which cost over 20k. When these facts are taken into account, she comes across as extremely petty.

NJ is asking the teachers to start paying 1.5% of their health benefits. Most people pay a LOT more than that.

I think you are right. He is a rising star and will be one to watch. I have my fingers crossed about his future.
