He’s talking about Christie here, but you could say the same about any of the GOP leaders.
NJ New Jersey Senate President Stephen Sweeney: “He’s a rotten prick.”
“He’s just a rotten bastard to do what he did.”
Hard to feel any sympathy for Sweeney. For reasons unclear to me, he sold out his constituency on pensions and health reforms, apparently expecting Christie to give him something in return in the budget. You’ll be shocked to learn that in return for Sweeney’s bipartisan comity, Governor Blowhard screwed him. Or rather, Christie screwed the most vulnerable among us.
He mowed down a series of Democratic add-ons, including $45 million in tax credits for the working poor, $9 million in health care for the working poor, $8 million for women’s health care, another $8 million in AIDS funding and $9 million in mental-health services.
Wondering when we start calling the GOP death by spending cuts agenda what it really is — virtual genocide.
