rein in the corporate welfare for billionaires and you won't even feel in your taxes that there isRead Morea pension system at all - take the elected public parasites out of the mix, along with the full time benefits they receive for part-time attendance and effort at best, including the state senate and assembly, and you would get a more responsible pension system, healthcare system, and workforce - but then again, it's easier and more convenient to allow Christie to attempt to take everything away from everyone else except his own leapfrogs and the Gilmore goo goos
carol ott April 20, 2014 at 09:05 PM
well we agree on a few things, especially our elected parasites. and i'm not a fan of gilmore butRead Moreno rcross makes him look like an amateur. and a dozen more up north. the only problem is kicking up the so called millionaires tax, which to be clear i'm not one lol, only raises $400M. its a drop in the bucket. and simply put i just dont see the logic in raises taxes the parasites will piss away until the stop the waste fraud and corruption. all your doing is giving them more to waste and enrich themselves with.

Pensions for employees, public AND private used to be the norm. Private employers found they couldRead Mores hip jobs overseas and pay pennies for what used to cost them a dollar. A pair of socks that use to cost 50 cents to make now cost 5 cents to make in some third world country where employees get no pension, no health care and no breaks in their 12 hour work day. There is nothing in place to protect their safety at work nor are there any environmental regulations. The air and water are polluted from the production of the 5 cent socks. Did Socks R Us pass that savings on to the consumer? Hell no, that extra 45 cents was pure profit. (and the millionaire CEO is getting tax breaks from on top of it) The private sector employees are told they're lucky they have jobs and they believe it. They're too scared or too lazy to fight for the benefits they USED TO HAVE!!!! The employees in that third world country contribute NOTHING to USA's economy, less income for the Americans means less taxes being paid, less goods and services being bought, it's a snowball effect draining the economy. The CEO's don't care, they're getting theirs, the politicians don't care, you have to pay your taxes or face jail or loss of property. Meanwhile, on the public sector side, roadwork, prison guard work, police work and fighting fires CANT be done from 5000 miles away. Those guys and gals know that, so...they keep the pensions and benefits they've ALWAYS had (just like EVERYONE else) although the powers that be chip away at them. Jobs are good for the middle class. The more they make the more they'll spend. The more they make the more taxes they'll pay. The more taxes that get paid the better our roads, parks and schools will be. Want to bitch and moan? Bitch and moan that YOU don't have a pension, NOT that someone else does. But if you keep shopping at wallyworld you've got NO ONE but YOURSELF to blame.

The nature of government related work is not the same as working for a church. People go intoRead Moregovern ment because of the same reasons any other job offers. Human behavior among government workers are the same as anywhere else. Leaders in government are not pastors and behave the same, either good or bad, as anywhere else. A big difference though is that when the governor says we can't trust government so we have to privatize it he turns those jobs over to the same type of people you find in government. There's no escaping the fact all people have the same behaviors, so what's glorious and different when a governor has no faith in his government and his intellect to solve the great problems of today? Better hope he stays as governor, because as a national leader he's very limited in his vision for our future. Truth is only a small tiny percentage of people think outside the box and are in a position to make solutions from impossible odds against them. Lets wait and see.
carol ott April 19, 2014 at 07:12 AM
lol i'm not sure actually what he is saying. public workers are real people to??? sorry robert butRead Morem y experience is a bit different when dealing with all layers, and there are dozens of layers, of government. the duplicity, the lack of focus all destroy any semblance of productivity. the lowly clerk isn't to blame that there are three people doing the same job one would do in the real world but add the union and the entitlement attitude overlapped by again duplicitous civil service rules and its a toxic mix of inbred workers incapable of a full days productive effort. all multiplied in 600 hundred towns 600 school districts 21 counties and the crown jewel the state.

No unions. No government. No Western civilization. Just corporations running everything. You doRead Morereal ize, your formula has been tried.

Christie's charade of a meeting won't be at Silver Bay School in Toms River, but inland at a BrickRead MoreT wp. school, Chief. Christie hasn't faced real questioning by the press in a long, long time. His fan club will pack the Brick meeting, ask softball questions, and applaud his every word.

@grace - they move to Florida anyway - there are probably more retired NJ politicians living inRead MoreFlor ida than their off-spring still padding their pensions back home in NJ - I'd rather they only have $40 to $50 thousand of our pilfered money to spend there than the current $100,000 to $200,000 they are spending now
