    Where did Drewniak get his license to practice law?

    This judge also believes you have a constitutional right to marry your cat.

    Just another example of the Governor bullying his way around what he‘s required to do by law and having the court rebuking his action. If he followed the law he can save the residents of NJ by depositing all the legal fees he‘s wasting into the pension fund for our public employees. He made a deal and reneged on it.

  • Jackie Rooney

    The fault does not lie with public employees that the past 5 or 6 Governors have reneged on their lawful obligations to fund NJ‘s Pension Fund. The public employees fulfilled their obligation to increase their payments for pension and benefits, 6 times to date, since Christie enacted Chapter 78. He‘s the villain here, not public employees.

  • Ron Warrick

    So we must destroy New Jersey‘s economy, already one of the country‘s worst, in order to pay off pampered public employees? Something is way off here.
