SHARE Christie takes a page from Hollywood

While vitally important, states’ budget issues are not the most fascinating things to engage us — though they should!

To zip things up, New Jersey’s Gov. Chris Christie has “gone Hollywood” in his campaign to push for more cuts to state workers’ benefits.

So, Christie’s office has released a trailer for a phony summer blockbuster film called, “No Pain. No Gain.”The trailer includes Christie warning of a possible budget crisis — punctuated with strongly dramatic music and sound effects.

The various scenes are edited together with explosions, car chases and even a shot of action star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
