Christie on the radio

Republican gubernatorial candidate Chris Christie is on the radio with an ad that hypes his work as U.S. Attorney.

An announcer says, “ As US Attorney, Chris Christie went after corrupt politicians, convicting 130 out of 130. …..  Christie’s office tracked child pornographers across the globe, … .He prosecuted corrupt business executives who were stealing from shareholders.

And now, he wants to be governor, the announcer continues,  to:

Cut state income taxes. Reduce small business taxes.

Stop the Corzine tax hikes that take away your local property tax deduction

Shake up state government top to bottom, end the gimmicks, the deals, the cronyism.

New Jersey is broken and Chris Christie will fix it.

That’s a pretty impressive roster of goals. But the facts don’t always add up.  For instance, Corzine already has backed off from eliminating “your local property tax deduction.”

And Christie has admitted it would be difficult to cut income immediately upon taking office.

    Corzine has not earned the right to a return trip to Drumthwacket, if you mess things up so bad that the state is almost bankrupted than you should go. The fact that he does not see this fact is a sign that he has very poor judgment

    To be fair and balanced, how about listing all the promises that Corzine made and renegaded on too. Four years ago he told us that rebates would grow 10% per year. Instead he’s gutted them, especially for upper-middle class taxpayers in places like Morris county.
