Remember When Chris Christie Was Governor of New Jersey?

He does though recent transplants might be a little foggy about those times.

From the last Republican debate*:

In context:

In his mind the plan may now be to never return – assuming there was ever a time when it was anything else.

    I don’t know what the exact line in the movie was but you get the message – kid you’re all washed up in this town (State). So long sucker!

    Ah yes the TL’s (Tough Luck) of this blog’s saviour, just another self serving false prophet set on egregious actions to benefit him and his superpac (minority) donors!!! We see how the Walker message resonated with GOP America, FAT chance that agenda EVER wins on a national level, Tough Luck TL. I’ve got my violin ready so lay on the weepy eyed responses.

      Better to save the violin for when your pension & benefits are materially reduced ….. only a few years away.

        OK I’ll polish it up and put in storage for now. When I take it out in a few years, as you’ve suggested, I’ll play it for both of us. P&B reform and increased taxes are both inevitable!!!

    I’m not a big fan of Governor Christie, but if he had said “while I was governor” instead of “when”, wouldn’t that be correct?

    Probably most of us are fortunate that we are not constantly being taped to record our misstatements for posterity.

    But it WAS funny.

      Are you a “fan” of ANYONE who advocates for Public Sector “Total Compensation” (in total for ALL Public Sector workers taken together as a group) to be EQUAL to but no greater than that of reasonable comparable Private Sector workers ?

      Of course not …. because Public Sector workers/retirees now have a VERY material ADVANTAGE …. and you, being a Public Sector retiree, want to KEEP that advantage.

      It’s called “greed”.

        “Public Sector workers/retirees now have a VERY material ADVANTAGE …”

        Maybe

        I have long been an admirer of Edmund Gerald “Jerry” Brown Jr. Even though he vetoed a general 14.5% pay increase for state workers in 1979 (quickly overridden by the legislature.)

        And his 2012 PEPRA pension reform has already saved California taxpayers (including yours truly) $billions$.

        How many times must I reiterate? My (alleged) advantage is immaterial, moot, irrelevant. Nothing short of a national economic crisis will affect my pension, and then we will all be in the same proverbial boat.

        Ironically, even one of those semi disasters in which some may call to cap, or proportionally reduce “all pensions over $50,000” will not affect me ………much.

          PEPRA had few provisions that applied to workers hired prior to it’s enactment. To REALLY be “material” it’s provisions had to have applied to the future service of all CURRENT workers … and it didn’t.

          Why? Because CA,s laws/regs., and court decisions are written BY Public Sector workers FOR Public Sector workers .

          ………. but only until the Taxpayers get sufficiently fed-Up, and revolt.

        The gist of my comment was how a minor slip of the tongue can become blown out of proportion, particularly in public figures where so much of what they say is recorded, to be parsed mercilessly by their opponents.

        How do we get from there to “Public Sector “Total Compensation”? A complete non sequitur. Do all your roads lead to greed? You could probably get help for that.

          When it comes to Public Sector Unions/workers, YES, all roads lead to GREED.

            Interesting perspective.

            cant we all just ignore TL, I mean is there really any point in responding to same thing one million times over.

            A better idea ………..

            How about ADDRESSING the “problem” …. the grossly excessive Public Sector pensions & benefits, resulting in far greater taxpayer-paid-for “Total Compensation”.

    Tin hut, backward march, and the race to the bottom is off. Sarge we gotta take that “public’s hill” no matter the collateral damage!
