Keeping score on Christie

New Jersey imposes a higher per-person tax burden on its residents than any other state and, according to the Tax Foundation, is projected to be the worst state in the nation in which to do business in 2010, as it was in 2009, 2008 and 2007. No wonder NJ lost 30,300 manufacturing jobs from December '07 to July '09. Rampant spending deepens the problem: fully 96% of 400,000 new NJ jobs from 2000 to 2007 were public sector (political payback?) jobs that drain tax dollars. Corzine's solution? Grant even more money to liberal-voting unions, and raise our taxes even higher to pay them! As a result, employers, and residents, are fleeing NJ in droves with their taxable incomes to PA and other states, leaving NJ broke. Many voters still fail to realize they are being exploited by Corzine and his fellow libs, because the liberal press typically downplays it, or fails to report it—but we do! Read on...

Asbury Park Press Endorses Chris Christie as "best hope for turning things around"

"Cut taxes and reduce government spending. Make New Jersey affordable again for the middle class. Enact ethics reforms that will discourage political corruption and help restore the public's faith in their elected officials.

"We have restated these themes time and again over the past several years, exhorting the Democratic leadership in Trenton to act. For the most part, Gov. Jon Corzine and the Legislature have stood on their hands. Corzine's halfway measures on everything from curbing spending and borrowing, ending the excesses of the public employee unions and implementing reforms aimed at transforming the culture of corruption and self-serving decision-making in New Jersey have fallen far short of what is required to put New Jersey back on track."

Mammograms and the New Jersey Governor's Race
Because of regulations, state insurance costs are among the highest in the nation.
Corzine cut sweet deal with Communications Workers of America, the state's largest public-employee union, in the middle of an economic crisis
"There is a lot of pain in the state's proposed budget - as homeowners losing their property-tax rebates next year know so well. Gov. Jon S. Corzine has repeatedly said that pain would be shared.

But the sweet deal he just cut with the leadership of the Communications Workers of America, the state's largest public-employee union, indicates that pain will scarcely be felt by public employees."
