Christie: Teachers' Union a 'Bunch of Thugs'

Some more strong words from new Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Christie is one of the leading figures in the fight against public union excesses and he appears to not take a step back. His contentious fight with the teachers' union of New Jersey has dragged on for over a year with a tremendous amount of vitriol being leveled against him.

But he won't back down.

In an interview given with ABC News, he characterizes the union the way that many Americans see them:

"I believe the teachers in New Jersey in the main are wonderful public servants that care deeply. But their union, their union are a group of political thugs," Christie said.

He said the New Jersey Education Association refused to negotiate on a salary freeze last year. "They should have taken the salary freeze. They didn't and now, you know, we had to lay teachers off."

Take a look at the video:

Christie's doing good work. Keep it up.
