Conference where he spoke with the owner of the new deal -- earlier today David affect the all right well let.
Let's first talk about Chris Chris before -- just because Chris Christie usually makes light of how bad situations funny about it he was funny today.
But what surprised me was when he was describing the situation in New Jersey which she could could be true for any state in financial trouble.
Was how dire he sees the situation.
There -- seemingly less optimistic time in my lifetime in this country.
And people wonder why.
I think it's really simple.
It's because governments -- telling them stop dreaming.
We'll take care.
We are turning into.
Well still there's some very important business people who have businesses in New Jersey like New York Jets owner Woody Johnson.
Who thinks Governor Christie is exactly the person to turn things around.
In the state of New Jersey at any rate.
Here's what -- I visited governor do this type a job in any state particularly New Jersey ever.
I mean he's really address the problems of the state and the lack of lack of New Jersey being competitive state for business or people.
Ever he mentioned that when he came in office in January 2010.
They had zero.
Job growth over a ten year period and yet they had more bureaucrats per square mile.
Than any other state -- -- so they were growing government.
And as a result business was decrease and not balancing the budget I think his first two years he he -- first day in office he.
Took two billion dollars up the budget.
His next year he took eleven billion and had a huge fight.
Eventually got these senator Sweeney to back -- -- Democrat a Democrat.
To back that's always gonna get anything done to balance the budget all us and I think he convinced -- people new Jersey's only the truth.
That long term.
We've got -- we've got to kind of shrink government and and really support small businesses -- sort of jobs are created now he's actually gonna decreased -- is trying to decrease taxes 10%.
-- -- has to deal with majority democratic legislature do you think you'll succeed I think -- well because I think -- legislators saying that.
Medium and long term this is really gonna help them.
In dealing with the people that they represented in the -- in making New Jersey market -- I mean South Carolina Texas Florida all these other states have lower tax rates are licking their heels and stealing our best people of people moving down there that's got to -- I gotta ask you about your newest recruit T -- how's he doing.
