He can't keep quiet anymore

Straight talk from a politician?

How does this sound?

You know, at some point there has to be parity. There has to be parity between what is happening in the real world, and what is happening in the public sector world. The money does not grow on trees outside this building or outside your municipal building. It comes from the hard working people of our communities who are suffering and are hurting right now.

We need to get honest with each other. In this instance, the political class, for which unfortunately all of us are a member of, the political class is lagging behind the public on this. The public is ready to hear that tough choices have to be made. They’re not going to like it. Don’t confuse the two. But they are ready to hear the truth.

In fact, they find it refreshing to hear the truth.

They are tired of hearing, don’t worry I can spare you from the pain, because they have been hearing that for a decade, as we have borrowed and spent and taxed our way into oblivion.

We have done every quick fix in the book that you can do. And now we are left, literally holding the bag.

Wow.

That’s New Jersey’s new Republican Governor, Chris Christie, delivering a speech to the mayors of New Jersey.  There’s a complete video here and a partial transcript here.  Good stuff.
