    Approval rating for Gov. Christie dips among N.J. voters, poll shows

    Dont believe the hype that Christie is so popular, first of all he hasnt done ANYTHING yet...hes gotten nothing passed, all he does is run around the state running his mouth.
    I predicted that all the teaparty govs that got into office and first thing they did was give tax breaks for the very wealthy and corporations then attacked the working class would eventually falter and get in the negatives....EVERYONE OF THEM is now going down
    Rick Scott, Scott Walker, Christie...to name 3 of the most notorious.

    Gov. Chris Christie’s ratings turned increasingly negative this month as voters giving him low job-performance scores climbed to the highest proportion since he took office in January 2010, according to a new survey.

    First of all because he signed them does not make them his bill, I strictly referring to his agenda of Public Employee Pensions and Public Employee Health Benefit rape that he crows about incessantly since he got in office...has not passed...His Education Reform bill which is almost a billion bucks that is the cornerstone of his budget has NOT passed yet...any and all govs pass routine laws that are written by the other party or theirs that arent part of their specific platform.

    I noticed you didnt dispute where I said all the teaparty govs are now in the negatives and going down...for creating the perception they were giving the rich and corporations at the expense of the working class...

    Unless Christie’s Pension Reforms are Enacted in 2011, New Jersey Faces Pension Fund Bankruptcy in 2018

    In 2010, Governor Chris Christie confronted New Jersey’s crisis of affordability by successfully enacting a strengthened property tax cap and a budget with no tax increases.

    In 2011, it is the government of the State of New Jersey itself – and not just its citizens - that may be facing a future bankruptcy. Unless the legislature enacts Governor Christie’s pension reform initiatives, New Jersey is certain at some point after 2018 to become the first state to file for bankruptcy of its pension funds under any future federal statute that gives states the power to file bankruptcy.

    The Christie pension reform plan consists primarily of the following three initiatives:
    1) rolling back a 9 percent increase that was granted for 2011
    2) raising the retirement age to 65
    3) requiring that all employees pay 8.5 percent of their salary to the pension. To help fulfill the massive $66.8 billion unfunded promise to future and current employees for lifetime health benefits, the Governor proposes that employees pay 30 percent of their health care costs by 2014, up from the current level of 8 percent, but still below the 34 percent that the average federal worker pays.
    On Thursday, December 23, 2010, the New Jersey Department of the Treasury released a report stating that the unfunded liability of the state’s pension plans is now $53.9 billion, having grown by $8.05 billion between June, 2009 and June, 2010.
    In the absence of a bailout, bankruptcy, or passage of the Christie pension reform initiatives, only two possible circumstances can save New Jersey’s pension funds from running out of money in 2018. The first would be an increase in the value of New Jersey’s pension assets caused by a rise in the Dow to 20,000. That is never going to happen. The second would be the passage of a major New Jersey tax hike. That would be ruinous to the economy of New Jersey, and Governor Christie would never sign such foolhardy legislation.
    So. You're either in favor of maintaining an underfunded pension plan as it is... or hoping for the DOW to top 20,000... or, in favor of massive tax hikes. Sweet.

    I never understood the idea of a "free pension". It's your retirement and you should pay into it. I couldn't believe that people were balking over him asking teachers and other state employees to pay 8% into their "guaranteed" pension plans.
