IT WAS THE FLYING PIGS!! Governor looks to cut thousands of NJ jobs

Jon Corzine on Tuesday will become the first New Jersey governor in a decade to propose a state budget that cuts total spending, when he presents a plan that has no new taxes or fees, shrinks the state payroll by as many as 5,000 jobs and eliminates three departments, according to three individuals familiar with the budget.
Having pledged to keep total state expenses below the current $33.5 billion, the governor also will propose slashing state aid to towns and cities by about $100 million, and “charity care” funding for hospitals by as much as $200 million, according to the individuals, who requested anonymity because Corzine’s plan had not been made public yet.
