I pity the fool who thinks he or she is going to enjoy what’s coming out of the Christie Administration sometime in the coming weeks, Save Jerseyans. I know so because that’s what the Governor told us at last week’s Haddon Heights town hall and then again on Tuesday in Caldwell:
The coming push for additional pension and benefits reforms is one theory to explain why the Governor didn’t cut additional fat from the FY 2015 budget with his line item veto power in order to free up sufficient funds for full pension payments. He didn’t want angry furloughed/fired state workers (and their unions) to give the South Jersey Machine/North Jersey urban Democrats an excuse not to play ball? Who knows.
The only sure thing: pain.
