Skip to comments.Chris Christie to teacher: If you donít like my education budget, find a new job

But borough teacher Rita Wilson, a Kearny resident, argued that if she were paid $3 an hour for the 30 children in her class, shed be earning $83,000, and she makes nothing near that.
Youre getting more than that if you include the cost of your benefits, Christie interrupted.
When Wilson, who has a masters degree, said she was not being compensated for her education and experience, Christie said:
Well, you know then that you dont have to do it. Some in the audience applauded
Your union said that is the greatest assault on public education in the history of the state, Christie said. Thats why the union has no credibility, stupid statements like that.

I may not agree with him on every single issue (never have for any politician) but damnit this guy is the MAN!!!
I hope this guy runs for president.
I so agree.
Someone has to make up for the missing or diminished anatomy in most of the other Republicans out there.
Governor Christie said it all. What else is there to say?
Yeah, let ole Rita get a job in the private sector. the 41% we have left.
Apparently the degree is not in economics.
I admit there is more I need to know.
But I will say this: on the basis of that press conference video, I would pull the lever for him, no questions asked.
Who knew? God Bless Him
Every time Christie opens his mouth I like him more!
So she wants 3.00 for each kid?
I can hire a nanny for less and I get to go out to dinner with my hubby.
I educate my kids (both are two years ahead of where they would be in PS) for around 200.00 a year.
Lady, go blow.
That has to be some kind of HIPAA violation...
A man who says things like this should not be a governor.
He should be president!
Happily, my concerns have evaporated!
are you the same person that said that candles are on their way out
He's what the country needs to survive, a fearless leader who's not a politician.
And like Giuliani, Christie uses the LaGuardia good cop/bad cop technique when dealing with the press. When dealing with political opponents, he uses the LaGuardia technique of constant attack, saying things that need to be said, but others fear to say for giving offense.
New Jersey needed a LaGuardia figure, and now they have one. The state's Democrats may well end up the way Tammany Hall did after LaGuardia was through with them.
Anyway this teacher has an extremely overrated view of herself and how much she should earn. She works 9 months a year, barely full time job in these nine months, she has over 6-7 weeks vacation/holidays during those nine months, and 3 full month summer vacation, and she expects to be paid $ 83,000 a year? What here education anyway? Master degree in some silly non scientific major?
From this video he seems to be the real deal. If only we had about 500 more like him in congress. He’s said more of substance in this 4 minute clip than ‘The 0ne’ said since immaculation day.
