CHRISTIE GOES AFTER HEALTH BENEFITS IN LATEST TOWN HALL

The health benefits that public workers get are being targeted by Gov. Chris Christie. The issue was addressed during a town hall meeting on Tuesday. The governor said the state would be driven into bankruptcy by paying out some of these programs. Christie decided to cut the payments to the pension system during the last fiscal year and this fiscal year because the state was behind in its budget. Christie said the current program is not sustainable and noted a change in the health care law federally will force the state to change what is called the “Cadillac plan.”
