Chris Christie to Teachers Union: You Deserve a Punch in the Face
August 3, 2015
In an interview aired on Sunday, Governor Chris Christie said that teachers’ unions deserve a “punch in the face” and called those unions “the single most destructive force in public education”.
While Christie is busy blaming teachers, he’s destroying his own home state. Chris Christie has slashed education funding for New Jersey schools by more than a billion dollars. He’s gutted support for higher education and women’s health, driven New Jersey’s public pension system to the brink of bankruptcy, and crashed the state’s credit rating, all while giving billions in tax breaks to his corporate pals.
