What's more, he's costing the state an untold amount of money in extra health care and state administrative fees because of his total disregard for his health.
The rotund teabagger was rushed to the hospital today, complaining of shortness of breath. Apparently it wasn't a heart attack (the first thing one might suspect, given the Guv's gigantic size) but instead may have been triggered by an existing asthma condition.
According to a report on MSNBC.com (with my emphasis added):
While it is not known if this is an asthmatic attack at this point, a source close to the governor confirms Christie has suffered from asthma for years.So just to recap:
"He carries an inhaler with him," this source told NBC New York.
He also noted that the governor's weight doesn't help his health issues.
- Christie knows he's got a history of asthma
- He allows himself to get big as a house, making the condition worse
- And when it inevitably results in him being carted off to the ER, Jersey taxpayers foot the hefty health-care bill along with all the expense involved in setting up security, transportation, communications and all the trappings that go along with having the governor make an unscheduled hospital visit.
Just one more reason that Chris Christie is bad for New Jersey.
