Chris Christie Tells The Truth

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie enlightens a New Jersey Police Officer who is dissatisfied with his raise.

(Salute: Coalition of the Swilling. I'd embed the vid but it won't let me do that, alas.)

Money quote:

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.”

No kidding. Some of us have been going broke since the economy tanked in '08. A $90K a year cop complaining about his raise strikes me as... well, how can I put it? Let's say that I have this tear in my eye that refuses to be jerked.

This guy Christie's only drawback is that he's, ahem, very, very big. And not like Lincoln. But he's a truthteller.

I like that. A lot. A whole lot.
