Didnt I tell you people not to trust the Pillburys Dough Boy,he got many democrats in his State to vote for him,now that he's being called out over BridgeGate its back to being a Repuklican attacking The Pres. Repuklicans are evil by nature they have the power to pretend to love you,but under pressure the power fades quickly like during the election they cared so much about Americans but are now doing everything they can to kill the middle class an the poor

Didn't the minimum wage just get raised in NJ?
Also, it's now going to increase automatically as the CPI increases.
This happened even though the minimum wage is higher in NJ than in any of it's bordering states. Now, guess which of those states has the highest unemployment?

Christie ain't a Dem buddy anymore. I wonder what McCain like candidate the Repubs will force on their voters in 2016?

As long as we all get paid. This is no time to get chintzy on the extortion of money from the people who did work and pay through every avenue possible to the government and their crony capitalist lackeys. As this president pushes the envelope on moving towards a dictatorship, remember at some point a person from another party will end up being elected at some point. The next quarter century is not going to be that good without adult changes. And will be painful with them.

then the nation is going to continue to decline since we will not fix our structural problems as the agendas will always win out until musical chairs is played on government payouts to everyone involved. A right wing conservative with very little allegiance to the elitist controlled party is needed for 8 years to clean up the system. Since that does not jibe with Dem progressives and so called Repub RINOS and Repub NEO CONS , it will be tough to get that candidate. So our decline will continue and those who get paid off will continue to think nothing is wrong. But those who pay will pony up more and more and many who vote progressive Dem may have a change of heart at some point.

Kris Krispykreme is one T-bone away from becoming fertilizer.

Library? Don't be fooled.....those are only donut boxes turned up on end in the background....I heard Christie is a "survivalist" so he needs to stock up.

I hear Christie's next job is starring in that new Nexflix miniseries..."House of Carbs."

Funny, Christie created several jobs
at his Port Authority that never existed before
and for which there were no job descriptions,
no resumes needed and they started at a
minimum $100,000 per year.

In other words, fake jobs for his pals at the expense
of the taxpayers of New Jersey.

And then he complains about raising the minimum wage?

The Teflon Don deja vu all over again.

Who hired the fat man in the first place, Tony Soprano?
