Speaking to a business group in Cherry Hill Thursday, Christie says he’s tired of Democrats saying the state government can’t afford tax cuts while proposing new spending.

The governor says he’s not only going to veto the measures, but also call them out.

Among the proposals he listed are those to fund summer enrichment programs in New Brunswick and to launch a state institute for responsible fatherhood.

The Republican governor and the Democratic majority of both houses of the Legislature have been wrangling over a tax cut plan.

Christie says it should be a top priority. Lawmakers say the state should wait to see if it can afford it first.
