Christie is Ready To “Inflict Some Pain”

Posted: Updated:
Caldwell, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

On Monday, Governor Chris Christie used his line-item veto to make changes to the budget that was delivered to him by the democratic legislature.

At a town meeting in Caldwell, New Jersey Governor Christie explained why he took some parts of the budget out and said that his proposed changes to the budget and the pension plan going forward are going to inflict some pain.

“I can guarantee you one thing. I can’t tell you about the plan today because I’m not finished with it. But what I will tell you is that when it is released, it will be universally criticized, and the reason it will be is because it will inflict pain; because there is no other way to fix a severe problem like this but with pain. There is no other way to do it, and we all know that. When we are trying to balance our checkbooks in our own homes, if one of our spouses loses their job, if we are getting ready to send kids to college and we haven’t saved all the money that we should, if we have a disaster in the house, pipes burst, things happen. We have to pay expenses that we wouldn’t have normally had to pay. What do we do? We figure out ways to cut back somewhere else,” Christie stated.
