Christie: No More Spending Bills Until I Get A Tax Cut [AUDIO]
Governor Christie is growing tired of the so-called “money game” in Trenton.
He says Democrats claim they have no money for a tax cut, yet they continue to pass supplemental spending bills.
“We have the money, they just don’t want to do it, and their argument is that we don’t have the money, then they continue to send me these bills that want to spend more” said Christie.
But, earlier this week Senate Democrats held a spending bill sponsored by Republicans because they said it goes against the Governor’s promise to veto any supplemental spending bills until they guarantee a tax cut.
“It was a good move by them….and I know Senator Bucco (R-25) is passionate about Lake Hopatcong, but sorry I can’t do it,” Christie said during a press conference in Flemington.
The bill would have provided $150,000 to maintain the lake in Sussex County.
Christie said it doesn’t matter if its a Republican or Democrat sponsored bill, if its supplemental spending, its getting vetoed.
“They can call it whatever they want…partisan, bipartisan, non partisan, they can call the justice for all act, if it is supplemental spending, prior to the passage of a tax cut for the people of New Jersey, it will be vetoed. I don’t care who puts it forward.”
