Governor Chris Christie (R-Crispy Creme) has willingly let the media portray him as the 'moderate' Republican, an answer to the craziness that now is mainstream Republicanism.
However, his latest action betrays that premise. From the President of the New Jersey Fraternal Order of Police:
Dear Brothers and Sisters,Don't be fooled by Chris Christie; just because he can look Obama in the eye and not utter racist diatribes unlike his fellow Republicans doesn't mean he isn't a heartless jerk.

Below is the history of the program and how the Governor's actions will impact survivors law enforcement officers and other other first responders throughout our State.
