New Jersey’s Chris Christie Backs Away from the Cliff

[S]hortly after a face-to-face meeting with President Obama at the White House to discuss Hurricane Sandy aid”, New Jersey Governor Chris Christievetoed legislation that would have established a state-run health care insurance exchange in New Jersey pursuant to the Obama Administration’s Affordable Care Act.”  (Bold in original.)

“Oh,” quips Hot Air’s Mary Katharine Ham, “the fall from Beltway media grace shall be sharp and swift for the country’s most popular Republican.”

Read the whole thing.


  1. Wait until next when Christie runs for re-election and his BFF the SCOAMF campaigns actively for his opponent.

  2. Let us get this blood bath in the republican party over with. I’m ready to go to the grave trying to put these establishment republicans in their grave first. We need to get this over with so we can concentrate on 2014.

  4. BTW, how about Allen West to replace that idiot Rience Peibus at the RNC?

  6. It’s just time for the GOP to die and be replaced with something competent. Yes, living under one-party Democrat rule will be horrible. (cf. Detroit), but if the GOP can’t prevent the coming fiscal cataclysm, then what use are they?

  7. And with the GOP out of the way the fractious special interest groups that make up the Demonrat Party will rapidly go to war with each other.

  8. #5 – “5.It’s just time for the GOP to die and be replaced with something competent.”

    Yes, like a national conservative party.

  10. I think we already plunged off the cliff a long time ago and we’re rapidly falling.

    The math doesn’t work out. Entitlements make up 3/4 of the budget and that’s simply not sustainable without drastic cuts.

    Vote present. Step out of the way. Let the Democrats own it.

  11. Chris I actually think you are right in that we have pretty much already gone over the cliff and are just refusing to recognize that fact.

    The democrats would love to get their hands on budget cuts for the military, but the reality right now is that congress could cut the entire military out of the budget and it still wouldn’t pay for the entitlements we have now or the giant bill coming due for Obamacare.

    Our government doesn’t know how to stop spending money and the rich can’t pay for it all.
