Chris Christie Sends Obamacare Back To Kitchen

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Tear down this wall!... oh wait, no, don'tThe rightful good Governor Sandwiches of New Jersey, after weeks of speculation about whether he would veto a bill setting up Obamacare health exchanges in his state, has obviously done that. Now hundreds of thousands of people in New Jersey, lest the feddy gov step in, will have to continue receiving health care by their traditional method of rubbing grease on their bums and doing heroin. What else was Christie to do, though? The Obamacare legal atmosphere is too uncertain to be… doin’ stuff… also *cough cough* vice president *cough* *vomit*.

From NJ.com:

“While I appreciate the Legislature’s attempt to find steady policy footing in these shifting legal sands, I am concerned that a hastily created exchange in New Jersey will impose unnecessary obligations upon the state’s citizens,” according to the governor’s veto statement released today.

“I believe the better course of action for New Jersey is to continue to monitor the ever-changing landscape surrounding the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, and to refrain from imposing its mandates upon our citizens until outstanding issues are settled and the required course if action is clear,” according to the statement.

So it’s a timing issue? Then he’ll surely put them in place immediately after the court makes its decision, if that decision is to uphold. But then vice presidents aren’t be picked until late August, so… well, more shifty sands, there. (Of course, to never set up the exchanges means that the federal government will do it instead and we can’t imagine many Republican governors want that, what with the lack of sovereignty. But try explaining that to their bases, who don’t listen to human words.)

Also too:

Christie has already taken preliminary steps to form an exchanges by successfully applying for $8.7 million in planning and research grants from the Obama administration. It is unclear what will happen to that money.

Oh, just examine the revenues at central-Jersey Sizzler restaurants over the past couple of months, you should find it there.

    He spent the 8.7 million dollars to change the state motto to:

    New Jersey, the Olive Garden State

      We New Yorkers always referred to Joisey as the "Garbage State".

        Every one referres to Jersey as the garbage state.

        • mookwrthwilson

          I'm from Joisey too…but I hope the Rangers first take care of the Caps, and then sweep the Satans.

          • Barb

            Mook, I am still heartbroken over the Flyers losing. I dreaded the prospect of playing the Rangers because I know that the Rangers are a superior team.

    It's fucking Jersey. I'll hazard a guess.

    I see what he did there, "shifting sands" indeed. We used to play that game when I was kid when we wanted to cuss but there was an authority figure present.

    "Aw, man, shut the f…ront door!"
    "Dude, you're full of shi…fting sands!"

  • Rosie_Scenario

    Sorry, but when I see that photo it looks like Christie is taking a whizz.

    • terriblyfamous

      Yeah. After stumbling drunk away from a bar. At 10:00 in the morning.

    • Nostrildamus

      Given Christie's diet, there is no time of the day he's not.

  • bumfug

    I guess one of the "unnecessary obligations" Obamacare would impose is the obligation to not die in a timely manner, thus causing an inconvenience to the job creators on their way to the country club.

  • http://guyclinch.blogspot.com GuyClinch

    Well, at least the Republicans are working on an alternative to Obamacare, should it be struck down…. Oh, wait http://thehill.com/blogs/healthwatch/politics-ele

    I suppose NJ citizens w/o insurance could just wear a giant fat suit, act like an asshole and pretend to be Christie when they need to see a doctor?

      Mandate healthcare on the state level is an unconstitutional intrusion into your life, but mandated limitations on whether you can sue your healthcare provider for malpractice is not.

    To be fair, it does cost $8.7 million to get 'Governor' stitched on a yarmulke. http://wonkette.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/ch

  • chascates

    Needs moar bariatric surgery.

  • PubOption

    I see that Christie is pandering to the Jewish voters in the photo. But will the Orthodox vote for a lardass?

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      It's Kosher, they can.

    • tessiee

      "will the Orthodox vote for a lardass?"

      Of course not. Don't be silly; lard is pork.

  • SayItWithWookies

    If Mitt picks his running mate like a bride picks her bridesmaids, he'll look for someone stupider, meaner and fatter than he is — so Christie's a perfect choice. And the Federal government coming in and heavy-handedly enslaving the people of New Jersey with healthcare options — well that's an issue he wouldn't dare take off the table.

    Hey Wonkette, surely you are creative enough to come up with something other than fat-hating jokes about Chris Christie? It's his politics that are the problem, not his weight.
