BillBalls, with your logic, I guess you would have an issue with Garrett voting yes on his own bill. PS: He had to because , if he voted no on his own bill, it then would be a real killer to his chances fro reelection in 2014.I wonder how the Club of Growth will score him on his own vote?. Bet ya they give him a pass as he is REALLY ONE OF THEM. What a crock all the offsets before saying yes to spending crowd is . In any event, Garrett is to pay a big price the next time around at the polls.

Actually that is a good point and has some merit, even in the eyes of liberals as well as conservatives. But don't think for one second that Scott Garrett is thinking along those lines with his silence and inaction over the last 2 months. He is so far right on everything that entails spending that a few years ago he voted no on veterans disability issues.

Amen. BTW, did you see Scott Garrett on the floor this morning on CSPAN " acting" liked he cared. He had the nerve at the end of the debate on the FEMA funding measure to say that the "fund" is underfunded as it pays out $1.25 for each dollar it takes in. What a crying shame Mr Garrett. David Pascrel took him to task during the debate and told him to get real, that these are his fellow neighbors and that this is a disaster. Typical Garrett. He ended the session on the floor as if an actor wailing his arms in order to make a point that he was so happy that he and his wife went to Staten Island and VOLUNTEED his services and that all other folks in congress should do the same. Give me a break, I bet if an audit was done, we will see that he and his wife used taxpayer money to pay for his the tolls and gas for the car he drove.. He should not be allowed to obstruct the issuance of disaster relief. For the last 2 months, Garrett and his staff has stated that he has been "studying" the situation. Well Scott, as an actor and/or politican, you are not a quick study!!!!

Garrett does not an have a oz of decency in him. He voted against injured vet benefits, used a anti disability campaign message in his last election ( remember the BLIND RABBI attack line). Jim Crammer on todays Morning Joe TV show said that upon calling Garrett yesterday, all he got as a response was holding people accountable. Maybe we should all re look at his phony "christmas tree farm" and the tax riff off he his employed to line his pockets. Better yet, just don't reelect him. He has been in Congress for a number of years and has anyone asked the question why the current Republican leadership has not given him MORE responsibility. They know better. He hides behind staff, votes absent on some measures while he says he supports the issue and has a pattern of of no votes on issues like disaster assistance in support of his own neighbors plight. Maybe Christee can find a Republican who is better suited or the Dems can find a better foe, but clearly Garrett SHOULD GO.

Could not agree more. Garrett did not even speak on the floor today as most other NJ/NY reps did on both sides of the aisle. His only answer is we spend too much. His do nothing style has run its course and he needs to be replaced.

Finally, we get what we had in the 1970's. TWO supermarkets in this same area and for all those who say the character of Wyckoff is gone forever , do you know that there were 350 more people living in the Wyckoff in the 1970's then today!!!. How many of those who complain here about Wyckoff used to be actually lived here when we were blessed with 2 markets to choose from.

Gary, that's just the point. Garrett has DONE NOTHING at All after the storm hit to assist his congressional district. Don't you think he should have at least shown some sign of support or concern?. Maybe he is counting how many Christmas trees his " farm" ( tax free business) lost so he can claim a insurance loss. As YOUR congressman, he should be in the middle of the relief effort, no matter whose fault the current mess can be blamed on. My point is that he does not care to help as he did not sign a emergency funding bill because of he felt that it could be wasteful spending. He is the wasteful one!!! Our Governor is supportive,, but Garrett is not and should be VOTED OUT.

Don't blame the local mayor, etc but how about Congressman Garrett? He is one of those government hands off free market types who did not even sign the congressional bipartiasn bill for emergency relief to NJ residents the other day. Oh wait, in the middle of the storm a got a call from "W" pushing Garrett in the upcoming election. WHAT A JOKE!!!!.

If he and this is such a bold move, why doesn't Ryan make an example of what he is all about by giving up his government pension, his health care and the other benefits that WE the citizens pay as he is a 14 year ( and counting) member of Congress. That would be best example of less government involvement in our lives that he can make!!!!!

how much does moritz lose each year in his pension? What about his children on the payroll. And what about the DUI issue with his son with one of the trucks a few years ago?? What a joke
