After The Hootin' and Hollerin' Corzine Blinks
Funny, the Governor didn’t seem to feel that way when he was hootin' and hollerin' with state workers, whipping them into frenzy. "I hear you, and it's time for other people in the State House to hear you," Corzine yelled at a rally in support of increasing state taxes. "I'll stand with you. I'll fight with you,'' Corzine hollered in support of state government workers.
Well, maybe the hootin' and hollerin' in the Assembly yesterday has paid off, at leat temporarily. Corzine is the first to blink in the New Jersey budget battle, indicating today he is willing to wait until after the July Fourth holiday before closing down state government.
Why not do a little hootin' and hollerin' of your own. Contact your representatives and tell them what you think about Corzine’s new $2.6 billion spending and $1.8 billion tax increases.
