I will protect your pensions. Nothing about your pension is going to change when I am governor. - Chris Christie, "An Open Letter to the Teachers of NJ" October, 2009

@lgesin u read from the NJEA talking pts while your union's greed bankrupts NJ-but you'll have your raise&free health INS for life@lgesin it is all about u & your salary. 10% unemployment. Teacher layoffs. Program cuts keep your free health care on taxpayer backs
@locallylove Most not paying 4 health ins & state union pressuring not 2 freeze pay. 10% in NJ unemployed, most w/no raises @all. Get real.
