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
Stepping into the fight over Gov. Chris Christie’s proposed cuts to state school aid, U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) this morning criticized the governor for urging New Jersey residents to vote against budgets for school districts where teachers have not accepted a wage freeze.
“I think it is not responsible to tell the electorate to just veto, to vote against school budgets on a single proposition, as to whether teachers give back money or not. I think it puts at risk the entire funding for education in our state,” Menendez said.
Gee, hope he doesn't get the teabaggers all angry at him...
