One of the biggest U.S. transport projects ended on Thursday after New Jersey's governor said the state could not afford the risk that a new rail tunnel under the Hudson River could cost billions more than planned. Republican Governor Chris Christie, who took office in January, said the $8.7 billion budget for the tunnel between New Jersey and New York City's midtown Manhattan could rise to more than $11 billion and even surpass $14 billion. "We simply can't spend what we don't have," Christie told a news conference. "I had to figure out how I was going to pay for it. We simply can't."Can't spend what we don't have?
All together now... Yes... We... Can.
Billions, trillions spent on stimulus funding, and this guy can't cough up $14 billion measly dollars that he doesn't have? Obama should throw this guy a $14 billion dollar bone.
Clearly, this guy has no future in the Democrasociobamashere.
