Governor Christie Fails New Jersey (And Pigs)

Governor Christie Fails New Jersey (And Pigs)

 In Posts

For the second time in the past few weeks, Jon Stewart has once again called out Governor Chris Christie for standing in the way of banning one of the cruelest practices in factory farming—all for the slight chance of political gain.

Last week Governor Christie vetoed a massively popular bill that would have outlawed pig gestation crates in his state. This bill sailed through the New Jersey legislature, passed the New Jersey state senate 32-1, and had support from 93 percent of New Jersey residents. Stewart rightly observes, “there’s literally nothing else in the state that gets that kind of support.”

But Christie decided to put his 2016 Presidential ambitions ahead of the will of New Jersey state residents—and showing basic decency for pigs.
