Christie: Taxpayers can't join him on beach because 'they're not governor'

NJ government shuts down over budget gridlock 5 players to watch in the NJ government shutdown

"What a great bit of journalism by the Star-Ledger", the 2016 Republican presidential candidate continued.

For the first time in over a decade, New Jersey's government shut down on Friday night after Governor Chris Christie and state lawmakers failed to pass a budget. Christie said that he doesn't want to see Speaker Prieto kick people out of Liberty State Park this weekend adding that the shutdown was purely up to his rival.

At a news conference on Sunday 2 July, Christie announced he was spending the weekend at his governor's residence and was commuting by helicopter to work.

"Tell Gov. Christie: Get the hell off Island Beach State Park", the banner read, according to a video of the flight passing by.

Christie enjoying the beach with family and friends on Sunday amid the government shutdown. Neither did Christie appear to think it was unfair to spend the weekend at the beach when other holiday-goers were shut out. Earlier, the governor had said there was no reason for his family to cancel the planned vacations since they would not use any of the "services" normally provided on the beach. He did not get any sun. Confronted with the pictures, his spokesman changed the story and said that the governor hadn't gotten any sun because "he had a baseball hat on". As photographer Mills explains, "In one photo, Christie looks me dead in the eye". All state parks have been closed as a result of the shutdown. "It's beyond words", Guadagno, who is running to replace Christie when his term expires, posted to Facebook.

With just six months left in his eight-year gig as governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie gives zero fucks what the world thinks of him. However, the pictures of Gov. Christie, basking in the sun on a beach he ordered closed less than 48-hours prior are nothing short of damning. "Run for governor, and you can have a residence there", he said.

The budget dispute began after the state Senate passed a bill granting the state the authority to determine how much money Horizon Blue Cross/Blue Shield can keep in its surplus fund before it is required to contribute to a public health fund. He encouraged people to use them - but urged them to use sunscreen and hydrate.
