Now, that's what I call efficiency in government!

In New Jersey, which has been seeing a mass exodus of the state's high income earners due to draconian taxes, the overspending New Jersey legislature decided to try to solve the state's budget woes by stupidly raising taxes on - what else? - the state's rich residents. These statists are such one-trick ponies: Tax and spend, tax and spend, tax and spend. Tax the rich, tax the rich, tax the rich.

New Jersey's Republican governor Chris Christie was going to have none of that. Watch this video, in which Governor Christie vetoes the legislation a mere two minutes after receiving it. What is really great is the brief and curt exchange at the end between the Democrat President of the New Jersey State Senate and Governor Christie.

Chris Christie is continuing to impress the hell out of me.

Judging from this post, apparently you came back alive from Six Flags. What were they studying there? The physics of roller coasters? Bumper car philosophy?Recreation theory? Or "Hey cutie, you wanna look at some animals?"
