I think I love you~ Gov. Chris Christie schools Whitman heckler at Rally

My Christie Crush is so bad now I hear the Partridge Family, I think I love you, whenever I see one of these Christie videos. ..

TheCorner:

…Christie was concluding a town hall meeting with Whitman when an angry audience member criticized her for not taking questions.

“What are you hiding?” shouted Ed Buck, in jeans and a light shirt in the front row of the 400-person event. “You’re looking like Arnold in a dress,” he said in a reference to outgoing California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Before Whitman could respond, Christie stepped down from the stage and got in Buck’s face.

“Hey, listen. You know what. You want to yell, yell at me,” Christie said, shutting down Buck as Christie’s bodyguards calmly but quickly approached the two men. “It’s people who raise their voices and yell and scream like you who are dividing this country. We’re here to bring this country together.”

Gov. Chris Christie schools another NJ teacher on elementary facts of the NJ education budget

CAN. NOT. GET. ENOUGH. OF. THIS. MAN.

Business Insider:

…the teacher accuses Christie of gutting the NJ education system, and Christie responds with a point-by-point explanation of how unaffordable NJ schools had become, and how modest the cuts he proposed were.

If you don’t want to watch the whole thing, skip to the final few minutes, when he addresses an email that was sent out by the head of the NJ teacher’s union praying for Christie’s death. His tone is just perfect, and he makes it impossible for viewers not to be on his side.

Moment of Political Zen: Gov. Chris Christie R-NJ and Mayor Corey Booker D-Newark promote CAP 2.5 legislation…

Update 2: the veto overide failure is up on the news wires

Update: More joy from Joisey- Kudlow is reporting the State Legislature’s attempt to override Gov Christie’s veto of the millionaire’s tax has failed. Good news for NJ job creation!

Governor Chris Christie joined by Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno and Newark Mayor Corey Booker make an announcement regarding the proposal to cap property tax increases to no more than 2.5 percent.

In the midst of the economic hurricane, leadership emerges – Gov Christie steps up to the plate with CAP 2.5 (our previous post outlining  CAP 2.5 here) and Mayor Corey Booker, Democrat of Newark, steps up to support him. It MUST be done, there is no more money, the residents of New Jersey have nothing more to give. Labor has to step up and share the hits or close up shop and call it a day. Americans have had enough with labor’s overreach.

Gov. Chris Christie: The Reform Agenda – Changing Course in NJ

An EXCELLENT piece up at RCP by Governor Christie, must read. Highlights:

(…) I feel an obligation to stand up and do what the people elected me to do, which is to get our government under control, and to start to reduce the amount of money that people have to pay to the government in taxes.

But if all we do is cut, and we don’t get at the underlying problem, we’re just going to be back in this spot year, after year, after year….

On the cornerstone of the plan the 2.5 cap, first property taxes:

…We can’t increase municipal aid, increase aid to school districts, and increase property taxes without end. At some point, the people’s ability to pay runs out.

And now we’re there.

With property taxes up 70 percent in ten years, people in New Jersey are now voting with their feet, and they’re leaving….

First and foremost, we have to impose discipline on every level of the political system. I propose that we start with Cap 2.5, a constitutional amendment to cap property tax increases at no more than 2.5 percent per year….

The ‘pathetic’ response that we cannot cut:

…But anyone who comes to this discussion talking about “you can’t cut this” and “you can’t cut that” who doesn’t have some way to pay for it besides jacking up property taxes is just joining that pathetic, 30-year tradition of passing along the problem for the next guy to deal with….

Capping the spending at the same level:

..Fundamental fairness dictates that the other part of the constitutional amendment has to be that discretionary state spending-state spending outside debt service or aid to municipalities or school districts-has to be capped at 2.5 percent as well….

How government spending squeezes out private jobs:

…Consider this fact. In 2009 we lost 121,000 private sector jobs in New Jersey, while the municipal and school board payrolls grew by 11,300 jobs.

The private sector shrank… while the government grew. That’s exactly backwards from how it’s supposed to be….

The Big Kahuna – ‘The Toolkit: Collective Bargaining Reform’

…Arbitration is there to be sure that these things are fairly resolved-and the key word there is “fair.” More often than not these decisions are favorable to labor, but they’re not always fair to the taxpayers who have to pay whatever the arbitrator decides.

So under collective bargaining reform, every arbitrator will have to take into account Cap 2.5. They will no longer be allowed to award a benefit that’s larger than that. For the first time, arbitrators will have to consider not only who’s sitting at the table in front of them, but also who pays the bills….

The Closing Argument – Standing up for NJ Families:

…After three decades of passing the buck, we’ll cap increases in property taxes that are wrecking people’s lives and driving people out of our state, and we’ll give local leaders the tools they need to help control the underlying expenses.

We’re going to build a solid fiscal foundation for our state. We’re going to say “No” to those who refuse to understand that the days of something for nothing are over and the days of shared sacrifice are here.

We’re going to stand up to the entrenched, special interests that are unused to having the truth told to them without regard to the political consequences.

We’re going to stand up for the future of our children and grandchildren-a future in New Jersey that is hopeful, optimistic and full of opportunity and prosperity in a private sector that is growing and a public sector that stops the annual grab for the taxpayers wallets.

The legislature needs to put Cap 2.5 on the ballot this November as a constitutional amendment, and let the people do what the politicians in Trenton have refused to do for 30 years: get out-of-control property taxes under control and, at long last, fix this perpetual fiscal crisis, once and for all.
