At Northjersey dot com, Valerie Vainieri Huttle highlights Chris Christie’s utter disdain for those most in need. A snippet:
The most disturbing aspect of this situation (continual cuts in funding for programs to help those who are struggling–ed.) is the complete and utter disregard the governor has displayed for the human casualties of his decision. This indicates a serious disconnect with the struggles of everyday New Jerseyans.
Many of the constituents that benefit from these programs the governor excised have come before the Assembly Human Services Committee with heartbreaking pleas for assistance, pleas that did not fall on deaf ears when we crafted the Democratic budget this year. That is, until it arrived at the governor’s desk.
With the stroke of a pen, the governor told these constituents: You are not worthy.
