All statements involving Joseph Kyrillos

Says Chris Christie was "behind" in the polls against Jon Corzine during the 2009 governor's race.

Says "when I voted against [an increase in the minimum wage], it was in the 80s."

"When (Joe Kyrillos) had an opportunity to vote for women in terms of their health care, not once, not twice, but six times, he voted against women’s health care in our state."

Says under U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez’s watch the nation’s unemployment rate and debt doubled and the federal budget deficit quadrupled.

Says the United States has the "highest corporate tax rate in the world."

"Bob Menendez actually voted in favor of higher taxes more than 70 times!"

"We've got the highest corporate tax rate in the world."

"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."

Says Joe Kyrillos "voted to raid the state's pension funds by $2.8 billion that is costing New Jersey taxpayers still today to the tune of nearly $15 billion dollars to repay that money."

Says Robert Menendez is "the king of raising money from Wall Street, over a million dollars, one of the leaders in the United States Senate. I haven’t raised any Wall Street money at all."

"In my years in the State Legislature, I have never voted for a tax increase."

Says under the new health care law "the patient-doctor relationship will be eliminated."

"Senator Menendez said he would spend our money wisely. But our annual national deficit climbed from $250 billion a year to $1.6 trillion on his watch."
