The NJEA’s agitator-in-chief Barbara Keshishian took to the podium earlier today at a Trenton union rally and – if you can believe it – accused Governor Christie of trying to inaugurate a “middle-class civil war.”
And do you know what the funniest part of all this is, Save Jerseyans? After years of bilking the people of New Jersey to fatten her personal bank account, Ms. Keshishian can no longer speak on behalf of the middle class. Her salary as head of the New Jersey Education Association is $263,000, not counting other accrued perks and benefits. That makes Ms. Keshishian “rich” by President Obama’s own calculus.
Watch out, Ms. Keshishian! Shirley Turner is coming for your money!
The truth is that thanks to people like Barbara Keshishian, the only people who can get rich anymore living in New Jersey are those who actually work for the government!
Most middle class New Jersey residents don’t have a powerful union behind them that can spend PAC money (financed by tax dollars through public employee union dues) and de facto SELECT the person with whom they negotiate their salaries.
She’s definitely not the first union goon to lie on the taxpayers’ dime, but yes, today’s ridiculousness from Barbara Keshishian is a whole new level of hypocrisy from the kooky left.
