Friday over 700 people gathered at the State House in Trenton to protest the governor's 800% toll hike. They released hundreds of pig baloons to prove a point to a Governor who is just not listening to New Jersey.
He spoke at schools around the state and was met with loud catcalls, Boo's and Oinks. And still he wasn't listening.
The flying pigs were something the Govenor brought on himself by making the statement, "Pigs will fly over the state house before there's a realistic level of new taxes or spending cuts that can fix this mess." He also denied hearing any oposition from the residents he will be extorting money from. Exactly what does "Booooo" mean, anyway?
My own husband travels over two hours on these toll roads everday. I hear Corzine saying the state had debt to pay but does he realize the people who have to travel the farthest to get to good paying jobs aren't the richest people in the state? That these people work hard for their money and some are going paycheck to paycheck just to get by? So Mr. Corzine, where are these hard working New Jersey residents going to get the money to pay your toll increase? Do we need to get a second job? Start working nights? Are you trying to increase the mass exodus that NJ has been experiencing over the last few years?
Well, the pigs have flown. Govenor Corzine, can you hear us now?
