Where we're down, we're not alone
Tom Kean Jr.
"New Jersey is the only state in the union that spent less on higher education than it did at the beginning of the decade."
He never cast such a vote
Says Rep. Jon Runyan "voted to redefine rape."
He said no to hike in 2005
Says "when I voted against [an increase in the minimum wage], it was in the 80s."
Not a budget resolution

Overstating the overstayers
Says the "number-one source" of illegal immigration "is people legally coming to the United States on a tourist visa or a student visa and then disappearing into the population and never being heard from again."
Misleading on several fronts
Says "if we do nothing and continue to let Obamacare siphon off that $700 billion dollars off the top of it, Medicare goes away in less than 10 years -- certain accounts of it -- and it just falls apart at the seams."
Two other govs endorsed first

A tax break for some, not all

New numbers, new ruling
"New Jersey today has fewer employees in state government than it had when Christie Whitman left office in January of 2001, and I think that’s good. And we did it without any layoffs. We did it through attrition."
Jobs claim is off the mark
"We are not producing jobs. We created 80,000 jobs last month. We don't talk about the jobs that we lost. The net of it all is that we lost jobs."
