The Jersey Comeback?

promoted by Rosi

New Jersey lost 8,600 jobs in March.

And despite all that talk about how good Christie is for business…. the private sector lost 11,600 jobs while the public sector made slight gains of 3,000 jobs.

And as the Star Ledger wrote two months ago, “the larger issue: Under Christie, New Jersey has lagged behind the nation, and neighboring states, in job growth.”

Under Chris Christie, New Jersey is ranked 47th as a place to do business. Under Mitt Romney, Massachusetts was ranked 47th as well.

With economic policies that are so similar in their failure to create growth for the middle class and to help strengthen business, can we be surprised that Mitt Romney is poised to pick Chris Christie to be his running-mate?

P.S. Under Obama/Biden the country has had 25 consecutive months of private sector job growth.

    Where do you think NJ was ranked before Chris Christie?

    50th? was it?

    The numbers don’t look good because all the private sector growth (the most in 10 years), was largely wiped out by public sector downsizing.

    A correction was necessary, I have to hunt for the link, but I think between 1999 and 2006 public sector employment in NJ doubled, while the population showed only modest gains. Something had to be done.

    The MSM is his public relations department.  And Stevie Adubato would say it on camera right now, but his nose is so brown that he doesn’t want to make an appearance.
