New Jersey: Christie Veto of Planned Parenthood Tax-Funds Upheld

This ought to generate some post 4th of July fireworks.
Democrats in the New Jersey legislature were unable to override a veto pro-life Gov. Chris Christie issued to prevent taxpayers in the Garden State from having to fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

The bid to override Governor Christie’s line-item veto of the $7.453 million appropriation for women’s health and family planning services, with much of the money going to the pro-abortion giant, failed in the state house this morning. The votes were roughly split down party lines and democrats could only muster 24 of the 27 votes needed to override and three Republican state senators chose not to vote: Allen, Bateman, and Beck.
