    make everyone who is still working a bigger segment of the “working poor!” The argument that “out- of- staters” will pay, is such a joke,when most of our in- staters must commute to survive. So interesting this comes 3 days before the end of the fiscal year budget, huh?- if Christie signs, the Dems know it is the Reps who will get the blame ( they will run on it!,) and defeat even more Reps,next year.. Guess he is pretty confident he’ll be skipping out in Jan., ( in a vehicle he didn’t pay the gas for,) for a new job,in DC.. Bye- bye Kim and NJGOP, nothing like leaving us stronger than when you got here!. How many more economic downgrades can we take, before we are bankrupt, like Detroit, Puerto Rico, AC, et al ?? These people are nuts, this state is toast- quick, grab a tankful, and beat it out of here, once and for all!
