This ad from the NJ Education Association (the NJ Teachers Union) has been everywhere.

And after hearing it at least a dozen times, I must confess that I am unmoved. I am unmoved that some math and reading programs might be cut. That there will be fewer catered lunches for administrator meetings. That the teachers may have to pay more than 1.5% of their health premiums through payroll deductions.

In essence, the ad is demonstrating that Christie is doing the right thing. We can’t afford everything and we shouldn’t have to be put in that position.
