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

Rich, Lying, and Loving It!

Our lying governor went on to his favorite lying media platform to engage in some good old fashioned lying:

Let me be the first to say how sorry I am that multi-multi-millionaire and Wall Street scumbag Jim Cramer has to pay property taxes on his huge Summit house with a private gym that are more than his mortgage. Of course, this parasite probably could have plunked down cash for the house - how big do think his mortgage really is?

But, hey, it's better than paying that old millionaire's tax, which was conveniently gutted by... wow, what a surprise - Chris Christie!

Now, we all know that the media is completely liberal, but is it too much to ask that the wealthy Mika Brzezinski, the very wealthy Joe Scarborough, the really wealthy Mort Zuckerman, or the insanely wealthy Jim Cramer call the very wealthy Chris Christie on his bulls***?!?!

Because if every teacher took a pay freeze and paid 1.5% into their insurance, it wouldn't have covered 1/4 of the aid cuts Christie made last year. (look at p.25 and 26)

By the way - all of us teachers took the 1.5% for health care. Nobody liked it - who would? - but we took it. So stop with the "go to hell" crap. We've given far, far more as a percentage of our modest wealth to this state than Jim Cramer ever did.

The entire interview is sickening. Aside from the expected ass-kissing, Christie has the gall to say that the rich are already paying too much in NJ.

Again: Christie's favorite radio station reported that the middle class hasn't made an extra dime over the past 20 years while the top 1% has raked it in. But the Guv thinks they are already sacrificing so much, poor lambs....

But the problem is public workers who want to take their kids to the doctor and not run up the credit card. This country has lost its freakin' mind.
