    I bet they will have this figured out by next Friday at the lastest.  These things never usually last long because of the implications these actions cause.

    But you can't just blame the governor.  He has this power for a reason.  He felt like he needed to make a statement and he is doing the best thing (according to him).  Let's just hope they reach an agreement soon.

    Being a NJ resident myself, I know for a fact that it is the fault of the new ultra-liberal NJ Governor, who made public statements that although he could avoid the shutdown, he would refuse.

      Thats being to nice to say that he is an ultra-liberal.

      The budget crisis has come up many times before, and not one  other governor has done this. He (corzine) had other avenues to follow, but he chose to put his name in the history books by being the "Mule" that he is. It was either his way, or the hi-way. I wonder how many voters are second guessing themselves now...!

      I smell coffee brewing, Hmmmm smells like recall to me.

        You got that right Maddog.  Everyone should keep in mind that Corzine is on record saying that he is shutting the government down because the NJ House will not grant him a raise in sales tax to 7%.  NJ is a state out of control, like a prison run by the inmates.  There doesn't seem to be any end to this madness, because almost all the Republicans in this state are really Democrats in disguise, so there will never be any balance.  I don't care if you're Democrat or Republican, if there is only one party, it's bad for everyone.

            DisapproveI'm sorry ya'll have to go through that.  It's bad when those in charge are idiots.  You should be outraged.

              Being from Delaware, I see New Jersey BS constantly on the Philadelphia news. So I say, as an American, let's do something about it. I propose we have congress revoke NJ's right to statehood. Then they could either become a territory, a separate country, or be divided up between New York, Pennsylvania, and or Delaware. However, it will take a lot of money to re-educate voters in that state to break their mentality of constantly electing crooked politicians.

                  People are SO brainwashed and have SO many consipracy theories engraved in their heads that there's very little Corzine could do that would really sway the vote toward Republican 4 years from now. People might forget by then.. I would do my part to remind them. A lot of the reason why the Nigerian scam and the "You won the Lottery but you have to give us $5000 to cover taxes first" scam still snares people. You should hear these people that think the President has secret human sacrifices and that 9/11 was staged!

                  If and when this thing gets solved I want to know where to see a detailed breakdown of everything being spent and everything taken in and how this extra $1 billion is going to make my life better than when Whitman was there.
