Governor Corzine Lets Down The People of New Jersey

For years, the American Association for Justice and the New Jersey Trial Lawyers Association have been trying to right a long standing wrong in New Jersey. New Jersey remains one of only 10 states which still do NOT ALLOW pain and suffering damages to survivors when they lose a loved one as a result of negligence. Even most conservative states allow these damages now.

Yet even a democratic governor is capable of bowing to corporate pressure. Despite passage by the state Assembly and Senate of an Amendment to the State's Wrongful Death Act which would allow grieving families to collect compensation for their pain and suffering over the loss to negligent death of their loved ones, the Governor "pocket vetoed" the bill, which meant he refused to sign it and let it expire.

So. A liberal governor doesn't even act to protect victims. What chance do we have to halt the slippery slope toward corporate/banking/insurance fascism in this country? Very little.

But we'll keep trying. You should, too. Elect people ready to tell vested money interests in this country to go to hell.
