Conservatives Slam Governor Christie For Threatening Government Shutdown


Joint statement by Jenny Beth Martin, President & Co-Founder of Tea Party Patriots, Colin Hanna, President of Let Freedom Ring USA, Inc., and Rick Manning, President of Americans for Limited Government, in response to Governor Christie’s government shutdown threat 

“Governor Christie’s healthcare cash grab is a political vendetta. Now he’s threatening to shut down the government, punish Garden State taxpayers and take away people’s healthcare, all because of a political vendetta. As the Wall Street Journal rightly put it, ‘Mr. Christie’s raid is a tax and regulatory mugging masked as public charity.’”
