MSNBC TV Cenk Uygur’s Republican Con Job of June 1, 2011: New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s Hypocritical Helicopter Use. Austerity for thee, helicopters for me. Video.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has no difficulty in cutting $1.3 billion in New Jersey’s education budget for the current fiscal year; nor he has any compunction about flying to his son’s high school baseball game in a helicopter costing the taxpayers $2,500 per hour, and then after the baseball game to a meeting in Princeton an hour and a half way to discuss a possible presidential run, leaving his job as New Jersey’s Governor.

Governor Chris Christie once said emphatically that all governmental departments and employees should be accountable for cutting spending. Obviously, Chris Christie does not consider himself to be a governmental figure since it is okay for him to spend thousands of dollars in an evening on personal affairs at the taxpayers expense.

Such hypocrisy bestows upon Governor Chris Christie’s use of extravagant costs of transportation for personal business at the expense of New Jersey citizens the Con Job of June 1, 2011.
