Also, as we all know, 80k in one part of the country is a fortune, and 80k in another part of the country is a pittance . . .

Christie has the highest negatives of any candidate at present. Stay tuned for more "ideas" from this bully as he attempts to put himself back into the spotlight.
Yeah and New Jerseys finances are a big mess.

Christie has done NOTHING for NJ, all he does is negative speeches and blaming all NJ woes on teachers, police , firemen and public employees.

He always ignores the fact, HE is a public employee

Send this bully packing fast.
Over half the people in NJ disapproves of his job performance.
Best thing for NJ now is he ignores NJ to run around country pumping himself up

Whereever he is today, PLEASE keep him..

Since Fox News is a little selective in its reporting, I searched for more info. Here's the document released by Christie. Rest assured, all of you old timers would not be affected by his (Soc Sec) proposal.

What am I missing? The fact sheet suggests that the income means testing will affect all current and future SS recipients.

It is vague on the phase in of increased FRA age to 69 and 62 to 64 other than to benchmark year 2022.

I interpret it to mean no "Christie Means Testing" for any current social security recipients nor anyone who takes it up until 2022.

Gosh. If I had a post retirement income of $200K. I'd be happy and would not care if they took my SS away.

He has done NOTHING for NJ? He has done too much, and none of it is any good. When he was first elected he refused to continue building another rail tunnel into Manhattan, even though it is desperately needed, and the state of NJ had already spent over $200 million on the project. He said that NJ taxpayers couldn't afford it, but he didn't seem to have any problem finding the tax money to rescue his developer and casino friends, under the guise of "saving jobs". In a state with the highest property taxes in the country, he threw more of a financial burden onto the towns, causing property taxes to be raised.

What? I don't understand what you've written.
