NJ Governor Chris Christie= Typical Republican, he lives high on the hog while
Edited on Tue Apr-20-10 07:47 AM by NJmaverick
making everyone else suffer.


Gov's office payroll goes up $2M under Christie

http://www.app.com/article/20100419/NEWS03/100419081/Governor-s-office-payroll-goes-up-2-million-under-Christie


TRENTON There are nearly twice as many people making $100,000 or more per year in Gov. Chris Christie's administration than under his predecessor, according to an Associated Press analysis that the governor's office disputes.



He is also cutting taxes for those making over $450,000

To pay for this teachers are getting pay cuts and being laid off, property taxes are sky rocketing, mass transit is cut and their rates raised 25% (putting more cars on the roads creating traffic jams and pollution), alternative energy funds have been cut and state and local governmental workers have been laid off and service cut.

BUT HEY, THAT DOESN'T MEAN CHRIS OR HIS BOYS SHOULD HAVE TO SUFFER!

2. Not only does he do all these awful things, but he enjoys doing it
you can see he relishes the pain and suffering he causes.

3. The people of NJ booted Corzine because they were unhappy getting their property tax rebates cut
and Puke Christie eliminated them and more. As is always the case here, a the rich Morris County and Hunterdon County Repukes engineered this Governor's election and the poor and middle class of the state will suffer.


I have a feeling he won't last the full term, he'll get booted or resign from the heat.

10. On Jan 3rd we hit the streets. I'll come over from Delaware and help out
This is a joke. He's going to bankerupt the state if he spends like that and yet those filthy teabaggers supported him!

13. there's an attempt to recall
if you're on Facebook join the group "NJ against Chris Christie"

HOWEVER half of me wants the fat bastard to last a full term. Just like Bush, his #2 in command is worse than #1. Kim Guadagno is a white supremacist who told someone in my OFA group to 'go back to your place N-word'

14. I think a recalled official is replaced in a special election
not by their number two. It's uncertain because (a) it's never been successfully used and (b) the Lt. Gov position is brand new and wasn't even thought of when the recall law was written.

15. good to know
however I also worry about a special election too because turnout is notoriously low. The last thing we want is a Lonegan type being elected

6. You got that right! Chris Christie could be a poster child for that style of government
help the rich and yourself while screwing over the poor, the middle class, the weak and the helpless.

17. How many around here were crying about
the lack of difference between Corzine and Christie? :wtf: The lack of difference between Coakley and Brown? :wtf:
And the lack of difference between Deeds and Neo-Confederate Bob McDonnell? :wtf:
And now the same thing is being said of Boxer and Fiorina? :wtf:

12. The Asbury Park Press has had a cozy relationship with Republicans
and the comments on the site generally bear that out, but I'm glad people, even those who voted for this repuke scum bucket, are speaking out against this.

16. The same nonsense happens in CT.
The GOP members of the town councils are notorious for spending freely to get votes and fill the coffers of their cronies, yet they blame Democrats for spending recklessly when it is the GOP who is doing so.
