Chris Christie

Chris Christie Still Isn’t Your Best Friend

I'm still hearing from liberals who say they would vote for him for president. And I always thought we were the smart ones, but clearly too many of us are either easily duped or we're desperate to undermine our own values. Christie, it turns out, vetoed a bill that would've helped homeowners facing foreclosure in New Jersey -- wait, correction. It's not one bill. He vetoed two bills that would've helped homeowners:

The first bill would have empowered New Jersey’s Housing Mortgage and Finance Agency to purchase foreclosed homes and transform them into affordable housing. [...] The second bill would have improved New Jersey’s program to help unemployed or underemployed homeowners make their mortgage payments.

All the straight-talk in the world doesn't make up for the fact that he's a hardline conservative on almost every issue.
