Good ol’ boy Chris Christie’s private joy ride!
This is amazing! New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie decided to take his wife with him to his son’s ball game today in a $2,500 per hour state-owned helicopter. Then, if this wasn’t enough, he had to be driven the extra 100 yards in a black sedan (tinted windows, of course) to the field once he landed. Who does this? Should we start calling him the Good ol’ Governor? So, the tax payers of New Jersey paid $2,500 per hour to chauffeur his family around for the day. To add insult to injury, he took this helicopter to a private meeting with his Good ol’ boy network (ie, a select few really rich guys) who are trying to convince him to run for president. Since the purpose of this $12.5 million dollar tax payer funded helicopter was to be available to take citizens to the hospital in an event of an emergency, this begs the question, whose interests does the Governor have in mind? Certainly not ours. Wasn’t he the guy who claimed we need to tighten our belts and live within our means. Where’s the so-called, “shared sacrifice”? Oh, I forgot, this only applies to all of “us”, not a select few of “them”.
