Very much so. ANYTHING that influences your policy decisions and your agenda while in office is the business of every voter in your State — whether you like it, or not.
Your agenda of gutting the public schools, while trying to institute vouchers so that the State can help pay for your own childrens’ educations is the business of every single voter in your State.
That you want voters to watch the degradation of education for THEIR OWN kids, but help support the education of YOUR kids — is the business of every single voter in your State.
That you want the tax dollars of people who can’t afford to send THEIR OWN kids to private schools to be used to help send the children of wealthier people to private schools — is the business of every single voter in your State.
That you want to gut the teachers’ pension fund, a contractual obligation, helping to drive the teachers smart enough to get jobs elsewhere out of the teacher pool — is the business of every single voter in your State. That the teachers’ pension fund is fully funded by teachers’ own contributions, and not the State — is the business of every single voter in your State. Trying to gut a fund that is built on the contributions of those it is meant to support after retirement is nothing less than wholesale theft — and that too is the business of every single voter in your State.

Add in the fact that you didn’t even respond to Gail’s question — she didn’t ask where your kids go to school, she asked how you thought it was fair to cut funding to public schools — particularly in the context of you sending your own kids to private schools.
Nobody gives a rat’s ass how important you think a religious education is — nice distractor tactic though.
Nobody gives a rat’s ass what private school your kids are in.
And nobody would give a rat’s ass that you were sending your kids to private school if you weren’t trying to gut the public education system in the State while doing so.
Gail’s question, WHICH YOU HAVE YET TO ANSWER is essentially “how can you support the gutting of public education while sending your own children to private schools?”…. it’s not a query on where to find your kids, it’s not even a question asking you to justify sending your own kids to private school — that in and of itself is a matter of personal choice. What is is a question of ethics, morals, hypocrisy and your own class warfare on the middle and lower classes — nice job skirting and ignoring the question though… “nice” bully tactics with the pseudo-self-righteous bullshit factor you tossed in too. The REAL question Mr. Christie — is how can you justify destroying the public school system, while not only sending your own kids to private school, but also trying to get those who’s children’s educations are being destroy to subsidize it with their tax dollars? How can you with anything resembling good faith, reason, honesty, anything resembling a sense of decency and fair play in ANY manner justify your stance on public education, while at the same time trying to allow tax dollars to be used to subsidize private education? THAT, Mr. Christie, is the question. Clear yet?
Now how about you try answering the original question…. or are you truly incapable of doing something that requires rational thought, rather than puffery, bullying, bullshit, bombast and abusive behavior?
By the way — all those teachers who voted for you because you lied and claimed you were on their side when you were campaigning?…. they’re waking up to the reality of you… and they won’t likely be duped by you a second time.
I’m betting the police and firefighters you tried to screw over won’t make that mistake a second time either.
After the next round of elections, don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.
