So, if this passes, Christie will have to veto it, right? If he doesn’t, he is sunk; might as well join the Democrat party. We just got stuck with a 60 billion dollar bill for the Hurricane Sandy cleanup (Federal relief) and I, for one, don’t want my money going to support the union shops and their fat cat union thugs.
