Another Reason to like Chris Christie

He is not afraid to tell you like it is.  At a recent public appearance, the following exchange reportedly took place:

Policeman: “My salary went up 2%. And after the increase in my healthcare costs went in, do you know how much my check went up Sir? $4. How am I supposed to live on that?”
Gov. Christie: “Here’s the difference. You’re getting a paycheck. And there are 9% of the people in the state of NJ who are not.”

Touche Governor.  What is unsaid, is that the police officer in question is probably making a very solid living and with overtime, probably is quite comfortable.
