So do I for that matter. He is the most divisive governor in New Jersey’s history and for all his fanfare, he has not even acknowledged the political and tax reforms that New Jersey needs to remedy the ills affecting the state.

Still, in view of the fiscal straights where the state is, a pension reform was needed, however, not alone. It should have been accompanied by a general call to austerity in the government . The government should have built a state-wide consensus to address the fiscal crisis and the governor himself should lead by example.
