Republican governors love their perks, like "free" helicopter rides at taxpayer expense:
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie arrived at his son’s baseball game yesterday via a “brand-new AugustaWestland [sic] helicopter, purchased at a cost to taxpayers of $12.5 million.” A car was waiting for Christie’s arrival, which then drove the governor 100 yards to the field. Though Christie has been promoted as a “strict fiscal conservative” for his quest to slash education funding and cut benefits for union members, the helicopter ride likely cost New Jersey taxpayers at least $1,830 per hour.A car was waiting to drive Christie 100 yards to the ball field. Really? Governor Fat Ass couldn't walk 100 yards?
