Corzine lied when he said his cuts “would spare the most vulnerable”

Corzine insisted that his cuts would spare those most vulnerable. He lied. Corzine’s budget will put one thousand people out of work.

When Gov. Jon Corzine announced his budget ax would spare the “most vulnerable” residents of New Jersey, nonprofit agencies that prepare the disabled for jobs assumed their programs would be safe.

Instead, they were stunned to learn his budget included a $3.8 million cut they say will likely mean a loss of 1,000 jobs for people with disabilities and the firing of 50 job coaches and drivers who ensure their clients report to work every day.
