I guess Christies constant bashing of teachers is not working anymore. Many people are getting tired of it. Some counties passed the budgets without any defeats. Monmouth County passed them 10-1. So the people have spoke.

Around here most of the school districts got a clue and had budgets with either no or only minor increases.

Correct. Thats because of the 2% cap. If the people want lower taxes they would have defeated every school budget. So the majority of the voters in NJ decided that the school budget is fine. So the lower tax crowd went back to thier caves and put the candle out.

I think what he's trying to say is that people are screaming they want lower taxes, but voted for budgets that would increase taxes, regardless of how little.

If people wanted to lower thier school taxes they would have voted no. They voted yes. = they are ok with the school taxes.

I'm not a fan of everything that Christie has done.

But tell me this: how many budgets would have had increases over the 2% cap if he hadn't put that in place?
