New Jersey Gov. Christie Says He Loves Collective Bargaining

HILLSBOROUGH, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he’s ready to start negotiating with state worker unions, whose contract with the state is up in June.

At a town hall meeting in Hillsborough Wednesday, Christie says he has never suggested that collective bargaining rights be taken away.

Just the opposite, he says: He loves it.

Christie says he’s in favor of “reasonable” collective bargaining.

Leaders of the Communications Workers of America say Christie has yet to meet with them.

    He also said that he loves pizza and beer more. Just look at him.

    Also his “new normal” sounds like low expectations to me.

    Just another GOP wind merchant!
