New Jersey’s Governor Christie, heart throb of conservative Republicans, wants his bailout money.
Hurricane Sandy’s victims are owed $60 billion, Christie says. “Fork it over!” he screams at the House of Representatives.
Boehner is supposedly stalling. Christie yells: “Fork it over. . . . now! No more stalling! You owe us! America owes us!”
He literally said this: “There’s only one group to blame for the continued suffering of these innocent victims: The House majority and their speaker John Boehner.”
But what about the innocent taxpayers, who will be required to sign on the dotted line to cover Boehner’s IOU? Christie’s implied answer: “Nail those fat cats!”
This is the state of politics today: endless calls for bailout money. Nobody is responsible, so taxpayers are responsible.
You and I are responsible for Sandy’s victims. We did it. So, we owe it.
The welfare state mentality is alive and well in state politics in the Garden State.
There will be a $1 trillion federal budget deficit this fiscal year. Christie wants it hiked to $1 trillion, $60 billion.
There is no hope. The federal government will go bankrupt. Count on it.
