Gov. Chris Christie To Public Sector Union Worker: We Can’t Afford To Pay Ninety Percent Of Your Health Care Anymore

Rush Limbaugh comments as well. This is a must see.
“The top 1% of income payers pay 41% of all state income tax. We already have the highest taxes in America and the neighbor who lives next door to you who works in the private sector, is already paying much more for his health care than you are for yours and they are paying the taxes to pay for yours on top of it.”
Christie didn’t even mention that public sector employees tend to make much more than those in the private sector as well. The simple truth is that government employees have been pretty much shielded from the pain of this recession. They have been promised pay and benefits by Democrats who left office years ago that government just cant afford and they knew it.
