Why not ask a question like one of these at Christie’s next “Town Hall” meeting?

And remember, “The people have the right freely to assemble together, to consult for the common good, to make known their opinions to their representatives, and to petition for redress of grievances”.           NJ State Constitution.   Article I, Section 18.

About how Christie didn’t fix the pension system.   Bloomberg reported that the state pension plans are now $47.2 billion short of what they need to pay government employees what they were promised.   That is 17% worse than last year, when you and the Democrats supposedly fixed the problem.   And this assumes the pension funds will earn 8% per year when they now only get 2.5%.     Do you agree the state pension funds are now an insolvent Ponzi scheme with most younger workers paying for pensions they will never get, and most older workers getting far more than they ever paid in?   As the chief law enforcement officer of  NJ, will you limit yearly pension payments to not more than $50,000 per year, or whatever figures is needed to make the funds solvent again?

About how Christie stripped local residents of their voting rights when he gave big tax breaks to Revel Casino.  Two years ago, some 1,800 voters in Atlantic City filed petitions to force a public vote on whether the Revel Casino should get 20 years of tax breaks.  But you joined with Democrats to pass a special law that took away their voting rights.   Was this was a mistake?  Will you force the new owners of the Revel Casino to pay the same taxes as everyone else?

 About how Christie padded our electric bills with hidden taxes.     Cheap natural gas cut electric bills in most other states.   But your administration padded our electric bills with all sorts of hidden taxes that force us to pay double.   Do you still plan give us even higher electric bills by subsidizing solar panels and keeping  your deal with Steve Sweeney to put wind turbines out in the ocean?

About how Christie can’t cut taxes until he cuts spending.   You blame Democrats for not cutting taxes.  But how can you cut taxes if your $34 billion budget is 17% higher than Corzine’s last budget of  $29 billion—without even counting all the new borrowed money you have to pay back?
