Gov. Christie starts new round of public forums

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is taking no breaks this summer. He says he plans to spend these months hotly protesting against the actions of Democratic lawmakers, who he blames for blocking tax cuts.

    His first stop is Monday in Manasquan as he travels up and down the Shore to talk taxes with New Jerseyans.

    Both Democrats and Republicans want a tax cut next year, but Christie and his Democratic opponents have continued to fight over where the money will come from, even after the budget was signed on June 29.
