Darling of the Republican party. Known for telling people to suck it up and deal with something themselves. Now he's whining for a government handout.New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie blasted fellow Republican John Boehner and the GOP-controlled House on Wednesday, saying he was disgusted that Congress failed to approve emergency aid for victims of Superstorm Sandy.http://www.cnbc.com/id/100349457Steve
Chris Christie sucks. Can't stand the son of a B. Don't trust the son of a B. End of story.
People who lost their home and everything they own are just supposed to suck it up? Apparently, you've never faced or even imagined the total devestation they've experienced.
People who lost their home and everything they own are just supposed to suck it up?I'm laffing at Christie's hypocricy.NJ gov: Entitlements make us lazy“That will not just bankrupt us financially, it will bankrupt us morally, because when the American people no longer believe that this is a place where only their willingness to work hard and to act with honor and integrity and ingenuity determines their success in life, then we’ll have a bunch of people sitting on a couch, waiting for their next government check,” he said.http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/chris_cross_XHwReGvgzZ...And now Christie is not only waiting for a government check, he's throwing a hissy fit because he didn't get it as fast as he wanted it.Steve
Maybe, I am incorrect in my assessment; however, I feel that Christie wants the money to repair and replace the infrastructure. It will be up to the individual owners to figure out what they need to do.Donna
The principle is the same. Christie denigrates people who want a government check, until he's in a bind, then he demands a government check.He could just raise state taxes to cover the cost of infrastructure repairs. but noooo. Much easier to lean on the Federal governmentSteve
From watching NBC news tonight, it appears that the money Christie is demanding is the money from the National Food Insurance. It appears that entity is almost broke and there are 115,000 outstanding claims still to be paid. Well, these people paid Flood Insurance premiums, and like homeowners insurance, should receive their money in order to rebuild, or not.However, I do have a problem with people who live on the coast constantly rebuilding and another disaster happens in the same area. Fortunately, our house was so well built, we lost shingles, but nothing else was damaged, except Mama's prize Mimosa Tree which was totally uprooted. That's when the Virginia Beach pier was demolished. (Hurricane Hazel). Donna
