A ‘fight’ for raises
Says Jon Corzine "gave away 14 percent raises over 4 years and he stood on the front steps of the Capitol at a public-sector union rally and said, 'I will fight to get you a great contract.’"
Corzine gets the blame
"By the way, I'm not raising tolls 50 percent....Jon Corzine did."
More than 2 1/2 years ago, but he said it.
Says Joe Biden said Jon Corzine is "the smartest guy that I know, in terms of the economy and on finance, I really mean this."
As far as the Senate historian knows
Says with Jon Corzine, "it's the first time, I think, in history where a former Senator has been subpoenaed to testify before his former colleagues."
