Governor Christie: And you know who doesn't think that we should raise taxes right now, in fact, thinks we should cut them? Let me give you a few examples of people who believe that who I may have to call in as special reinforcements to fight the Assembly Democrats. How about President Bill Clinton? President Bill Clinton says that keeping tax cuts in place now is probably the best thing to do right now. Just said that the other night to Maria Bartiromo on CNBC. He said we need to find a way to keep the expansion going and avoid the fiscal cliff. I think keeping tax cuts in place is probably the thing to do, the best thing to do right now. Bill Clinton said that. Bill Clinton's treasury secretary Larry Summers, the former president of Harvard, hardly could call him a conservative, certainly not a Republican, Larry Summers, he says the same thing. That's got to be the top priority. We've got to make sure that we keep providing support to the economy through cutting taxes. And just today, the chairman of the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke, is urging tax policies that increase incentives to work and save, encourage investments in workforce skills, stimulate private capital formation, promote research and development, all the things that we're trying to do through the business tax cuts we've already done and now the personal income taxes that we're proposing. So now you've got Ben Bernanke, Bill Clinton, and Larry Summers agreeing with Chris Christie. Amen.
