New Jersey Governor Chris Christie claims he stopped Assembly Democrats from raising the gas tax by $2.4 billion: “(Assembly Democrats) wanted to raise the gas tax by $2.4 billion. We said no to that….They’re down on the ground. They’re sweating. They’re twitching. It’s ugly, ‘cause I keep saying no.”
The bill would have raised taxes, but would probably have SAVED the taxpayers money because it would have reduced state borrowing. And, oh yeah, it died in committee. So Christie can Bite Me!
