TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie today said the Obama administration needs to explain why the Affordable Care Act is causing people to lose their health coverage despite the president's assurances they could keep the same coverage if they wanted.

Christie will never get my vote! I would rather vote for a Democrat than a Rino. At least with a Democrat you know what you are getting and can fight accordingly. With a Rino, it is like voting for a judas.

I hope Christie’s life will be filled with everything he deserves.

Why doesn't he switch parties and be done with it? We all know he's Obama’s BFF.

I don't know why anyone would be giving him grief over THIS decision. He had no interest in setting up a state-run exchange in New Jersey, and he must have been in good company because 33 other states didn't do it, either.

Read the article. He's pushing the whole ObamaCare disaster on Obama -- as he should.

Regardless of what you think of Christie, he does a great job flicking away that reporter-twit’s “why do you still beat your wife question.”. This deftness is something many tea party politicians need to learn. Reagan was a master at doing this. Palin, in my opinion, and others comes across as shrill- never a good thing.

So, disagree with Christie’s politics, but learn from his delivery.

Correct.

It kills me when the article is about someone in the GOP who is saying something correct and they get bashed for it.

Christie's words will be influential in a state where 800,000 are losing their insurance. Would Freepers prefer he shut up?

I would rather vote for a Democrat than a Rino.

Or no one. Hence, Obama. Thanks to all who stayed home.

I don’t think he should be bashed for that. I think there is plenty of other things to bash him for.

He should switch parties.

Christie is very adept as a politician, and has developed the ability to work with people in a blue state to get things done. This is why he will be a factor in future elections, regardless of what people here think of him or his politics.

Sure...bash him when he is wrong.

When he's bashing Obamacare...don't bash.

Why does Christie need this explained to him.

Even a dummy like me knows why they are losing their insurance.

The law—Obamacare—made insurance companies add new indemnities to all of their policies. These indemnities such as having to insure people with pre-existing conditions cost money. The law also says that you can keep your insurance if nothing changes.

So Obama changed all of the policies and that negated insures insurance.

It was all a part of the plan from the beginning and Ohblowhard knew it.

Christie is a phony buffoon. Where exactly does he ‘bash’ Obamacare? He asks a question to which any semi sane person knew the answer long ago. Obama lied thru his teeth about getting to keep your plan and you, I and CHRISTIE knew it when Obama said it, AND THAT'S WHEN RALPH KRAMDEN JR. (WITH NORTON'S BRAIN) SHOULD'VE BEEN SCREAMING FROM THE ROOFTOPS instead of walking the beach with Barry and holding his hand thru the election. Kramden is asking such a question now to pacify future potential voters who will foolishly compliment him on politely raising his hand and giving Obama an easy out as his spokeswomen has done. Where was Ralph when Ted Cruz was actually trying to do something about this mess!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Don't be so easily duped.

I'm not duped.

When Christie is an idiot I don't praise him.

But when he's bashing Obamacare I will get out of his way.

And they will stay home again if a turd like Christie is the candidate. So do everything in your power to make sure a true conservative is the nominee.

Thanks for giving us an anti-gun, pro-homo "marriage," pro-socialist medicine, pro-arm al qaeda, "severe conservative" to vote for.

The first governor to advocate for and sign an "assault weapons ban".... Yup sounds like the person I'd want to vote in to represent me in a representative government.

When your candidate can't come close to winning in a down economy a month after a U.S. consulate is overrun and a U.S. Ambassador is murdered in the street,......maybe that should tell you something about your candidate.

"We suck less" and "it's the voters' fault" is not a winning platform. The Stupid Party will continue to lose with such.

Try again, Karl Rove

He doesn’t need it explained to him. He’s calling out Obama and asking HIM to explain it to the rest of us.
