Governor Christie Tell Senate President – Forget About It

With the Jersey unemployment rate at 9-point-8 percent, State Senate President Steve Sweeney has announced he’s going to re-introduce a package of job creation bills that Governor Christie vetoed earlier this year, but at his latest town hall meeting today in Warren County, the Governor told Sweeney to forget about it.

“Every one of these jobs bills was another government spending program” said Christie, “it wasn’t the private sector creating jobs, it was the government creating jobs… the government should be a partner in helping to create jobs and we’ve done that – we put forward tax incentives and other things to be partners with the private sector to help create jobs, but we should not be creating programs that do that.”

The Governor then told the crowd there is a key philosophical difference between himself and Legislative democrats, and it comes down to “who’s in charge here? Should you be spending more of your own money, or should we? Should Government get bigger or smaller? That’s the key argument we need to have, and it’s one you hear me making all the time…I favor smaller government, and I’ll keep fighting for it.”
