Conservatives Slam Governor Christie For Threatening Government Shutdown

June 30, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—The following joint statement by Rick Manning, President of Americans for Limited Government, Jenny Beth Martin, President & Co-Founder of Tea Party Patriots and Colin Hanna, President of Let Freedom Ring USA, Inc., was issued in response to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s government shutdown threat:

“Governor Christie’s healthcare cash grab is a political vendetta. Now he’s threatening to shut down the government, punish Garden State taxpayers and take away people’s healthcare, all because of a political vendetta. As the Wall Street Journal rightly put it, ‘Mr. Christie’s raid is a tax and regulatory mugging masked as public charity.’”
