Here’s the Problem: Chris Christie Vs. The Jersey Shore

Here’s the Problem:  NJ Governor Chris Christie (nice name, guido) put the kibosh on a $420,000 tax credit the the Jersey Shore production co. was supposed to receive.  You see – when you have a state like NJ that has over a 9% unemployment rate, sometimes the government does things to boost their economy – like offering tax breaks for on shows that shoot there to attract business.  However, today Christie pulled the plug on the previously promised tax credit because he says the show,

“…does nothing more than perpetuate misconceptions about the state and its citizens.”

Actual Problem:  Really?  A 600 lb man who pays US Attorneys to defer prosecution of family members, cut over $800 million in school funding in the poorest neighborhoods, and literally phoned in a state of emergency from his vacation in Orlando when his state was under 4 ft of snow  thinks that a TV show is giving Jersey a bad rap?
