Oh, Chris Christie, you feisty New Jersey truth-teller who eschews partisan politics in lieu of street savvy solutions! We loved it when you fought for the little guy before, during, and after Hurricane Sandy. There was something noble about your embrace of Obama while collaborating to get things done during that rough patch. How refreshing has it been to watch a real politician put people over demagoguery, truth over party line, and personal principles over pontification.
So, tell me, why is a $1.25/per hour raise to the minimum wage veto-worthy? And why, when you had a minute to think about, did it seem that lowering it by one quarter, 25¢/per hour, was doable? I guess going all the way up to the staggering $8.50, instead of the current $7.25, was just too big of a leap, yeah? But go with $8.25, bring you that 25¢ decrease on a platter, and you’re ready to go?
One New Jersey governor knocked off his pedestal.
