Paterson Flooding Press Conference - August 31, 2011. (Transcript Below)

Governor Christie: We don't have time to wait for folks in Congress to figure out how they want to offset this stuff with other budget cuts. Our people are suffering now and they need support now, and they can all go down there and get back to work and figure out the budget cuts later. But we need the support now here in New Jersey and that's not a Republican or a Democratic issue.

So I would urge all my colleagues in the New Jersey delegation, no matter which party you're in, and all the rest of the folks in Congress, that nobody was asking about offsetting budget cuts in Joplin, and I don't want to hear about the fact that offsetting budget cuts have to come first before New Jersey's citizens are taken care of. So you want to figure out budget cuts? That's fine. You're going to turn into a fiasco like that debt limit thing where they were fighting with each other for eight or nine weeks and you expect the citizens of my state to wait? They're not going to wait and I'm going to fight to make sure that they don't.
