“I don’t think my party is opposed to this bill,” Christie said at an event in Wayne today. “This bill should be done, but it should be done in a way that is fiscally responsible.”
Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.), a vocal advocate for the health bill, criticized Christie’s comments.
“It is beyond shameful that Gov. Christie is dismissing the 9/11 health bill as fiscally irresponsible,” Lautenberg said in a statement. “The truth is that the bill will not add one penny to the deficit.”
