Chris Christie versus Obamacare Advocate

Posted by Steve Markowitz on March 31, 2014

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s political capital has taken a turn southward with the bridge-gate scandal. That scandal raises questions as to whether the governor was involved in tying up bridge traffic as payback to a political opponent. While the jury is out on Christie’s guilt or innocence, the smell of scandal has taken its toll. It remains to be seen whether the damage to Christie’s 2016 presidential run is terminal.

Irrespective of how the bridge-gate scandal plays out, or ones view of Christie’s political philosophies, it is refreshing to see some straight talk from a politician. In a New Jersey town hall meeting the governor was strongly challenged by an Obamacare supporter. His response was pure Christie, without apologies as included in the video below. Most politicians refuse to offer such straight talk for fear of losing the next election, i.e. their power.
