SOUTH RIVER – Gov. Chris Christie said Tuesday he hasn’t studied Democratic gubernatorial candidate Sen. Barbara Buono’s economic plan, which was released Monday.
However, after a quick glance at it, Christie dismissed it as “a return to the (former Democratic Gov. Jon) Corzine years...Higher taxes, higher spending, bigger government, and government intruding in every part of people’s lives.”
Still, he said he’s pleased that voters will be able to compare his plan for the state’s economic health with hers.
“I think it’s great she put out a plan because people will have a very clear choice between what’s happened these four years and what happened in the four years under Jon Corzine and Barbara Buono.”
Buono’s plan, among other things, calls for a hike in the minimum wage and increasing the Earned Income Tax Credit, both of which Christie has opposed though vetoes of legislation.
When asked in New Hamsphire today about whether he was considering a presidential run in 2016, Gov. Chris Christie said he wouldn’t discuss his plans until after November.Read More >
