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

Friends in High Places

Good to know who you can count on:
 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...
