Tough Love In New Jersey.............

A surprising breath of common sense coming from an unlikely part of the country. Gov. Christie sounds like a real conservative........I hope he continues to walk the walk and survive the coming onslaught of negative press.

NJ gov makes case for deep budget cuts

TRENTON, N.J. - March 16, 2010 -- With New Jerseyans shouldering the highest tax burden in the nation, Gov. Chris Christie told lawmakers it was time the state stop its "addiction to spending" and start finding ways to make it, and the tax burden, smaller.

In his first budget address to lawmakers on Tuesday, the Republican suggested doing that by cutting aid to schools, tax rebates to homeowners, laying off state workers and skipping pension payments.

Christie, who ousted Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine in November by running on a platform of smaller government, outlined his $29.3 billion budget proposal before a joint session of the Legislature, telling lawmakers that if they continue to increase taxes, people will leave.

"Previous administrations and legislatures have raised taxes 115 times in the last eight years alone," he said. "Raising taxes again on the people of New Jersey, the highest taxed citizens in the country, would be insane."

Christie's 2011 budget is slightly smaller than the current one, but given the growing costs of benefits and inflation and the loss of $1.3 billion in stimulus money, he had to make about $3 billion in cuts..................

I just saw that on the news, that guy is great. Finally someone who says what they feel, not the PC BS answer most politicians give.
