    Good Lord. I can't believe it.

    This new Governor in NJ, Gov. Christie, is great.

    The guy says what he means apparently and means what he says.

    Check this one out: He just vetoed the new idiotic Dem attempt to soak the rich.

    It took him TWO minutes! :lol:

    :clap2::clap2::clap2:

    N.J. Gov. Chris Christie swiftly vetoes 'millionaires tax,' property tax rebate bills | - NJ.com

    My advice to Gov. Christie is to seriously start eating lettuce, get some exercise, get himself in tip-top physical shape and keep doing what he's doing.

    Why oh why can't the Empire State take a lesson from the Garden State?

    Bravo to Gov. Christie and Bravo to the rationality that overcame the business as usual practice of New Jersey voters. Excellent news over there in NJ!

    :clap2: for the GOV, at least he is trying to fix a problem, and he isn't going around the world bashing America or trying to tear NJ apart etc etc. He's just trying to balance the budget and get rid of some fat along with some 'freeloaders', some of which do not even pay anything for their health care, WE DO, the residents!

    I applaud Gov. Christie, who has the 'ballz' to tell the unions ,NJEA and others to stuff it, and start tightening their own belts, which was and is at the expense of the NJ residents,and taxpayers.

    My mom.worked on Christie's campaign and now feels guilty because two of her children are teachers. He's gone down hard on the NJEA but we have told her not to feel bad, He is trying to help all NJ taxpayers including teachers. If some hard choices aren't made there will be no pensions system. That's something some union people don't seem to get.

    Exactly, it is all about helping everyone in New Jersey, not setting aside certain groups to continue having unbelievable benefits and who are not willing to help at all by tightening their own belts while having all the pie, at the expense of other taxpayers.

    Christie is doing what others have failed miserably to do, bite the bullet.

    A bit of edification for those of you who probably didn't bother to read exactly what was passed and what was vetoed:

    The Assembly voted 46-32 to pass a bill that would raise taxes on income over $1 million to pay for property tax rebates and prescription drug benefits for seniors and the disabled.

    But the vote was overshadowed by a looming promise made by Gov. Chris Christie to immediately veto the tax increase.

    Just before 5 p.m., the massive wooden desk where Christie signs and vetos bills was wheeled into his outer office.


    Democrats say the effect would be that the rich would be paying the same in taxes in 2010 as they did in 2009, when a one-year tax increase was imposed during the recession.

    The increase would bring in $637 million, according to a non-partisan analysis by the Office of Legislative Services.

    The Assembly also voted 46-31 to pass the bill that would reinstate property tax rebates worth $563.2 million and prescription drug benefits worth $55.5 million to seniors and the disabled.
