TRENTON – Senate President Steve Sweeney issued the following statement today regarding New Jersey’s unemployment rate remaining essentially unchanged:
“We are no doubt going to hear glowing reviews from the administration on these latest figures of failure. The truth remains: three years later and New Jersey’s unemployed are no better off under this governor.
“Enough is enough already. When is the governor going to come up with any kind of plan to put people in this state back to work? While he is busy erasing blackboards and acting like none of this is happening, people in this state are suffering under decade’s high unemployment. They can’t keep their homes. They can’t find access to affordable healthcare.
“The Legislature has and will continue to move forward on measures to create jobs in New Jersey. It would be nice to have a partner in the governor’s office willing to do the same."

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
