In this case, it's a bill pending in the New Jersey State legislature that will raise the state's gasoline tax from the fifth lowest(!) in the nation to the second highest over a three year period. With a snarl, Governor Christie lays down his markers:

"I think you all elected me in 2009 to end this madness.."
Save us, Chris Christie...you're our only hope....
