The committee investigating the lane closures on the George Washington Bridge in September is scheduled to hear from Regina Egea.
GWB lane closure hearings from May 13, 2014 - Afternoon Session
Cory Booker has lied. Crime didn’t go down in Newark. And he DOES run away from problems.
Rush Holt has made sense about repealing the Patriot Act and defending the 4th Amendment.
Sheila Oliver is contradicting herself. Not giving a clear answer.
Alright. Sheila supports it. Not good.
Frank Pallone seems to be against the NSA spying on everyone. That’s good. But he’s also too supportive of Obamacare.
Cory Booker is just rambling. He didn’t really give a clear answer.
He rambles lies all the time….
Very true. Check this out.
and this video.
How many schools closed in Newark, Mayor Booker? Where did the children go that attended those schools? What conditions were created in the schools because of the closings? Do you eat when you are hungry? Of course you do. You and Cami took that away from the children when you packed them into the Newark schools after those closings. Make a note of it.

Another reason to support Steve Lonegan!
He wants public education to be turned over to Big Business. His supporters to destroy public edcuation are are John Walton and Mark Zuckerberg……His goal is had over public eduction to his Wall Street buddies. Instead of fixing public ed., Booker wants to destroy it….
All four candidates are brilliant. Either one will serve New Jersey well.
You’re wrong. Rush Holt is the closest one to being good. The most intelligent and also protecting the 4th Amendment.
But aside from that, please check out supporting Steve Lonegan for U.S. Senate.
Right on, Rush Holt is the best choice here.
Of the worst ones though.
After the primary becomes Steve Lonegan VS. Cory Booker, look at http://www.BookerFAIL.com
and consider voting for Steve Lonegan. http://www.LoneganForSenate.com
Oliver made a great point in pointing out our dependence on contractors. Where is the quality control? As mercenaries how can we possible feel they can and will be loyal?
If America didn’t violate the 4th Amendment, then we wouldn’t have had been in such a position.
Many in the State only really care about Booker and Holt. I would love a debate with just the two of them. I don’t need to hear from the other two, no offense intended.
I think it is bad that we are assuming that Booker will win. No, all of these four, very bright candidates should be heard. This is not a race Booker should take for granted.
I am of the Holt camp, but Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver has made some good points. I knew nothing about her compared to the other three either.
Why don’t you need to hear from others? That is just a poor attitude. We need more minds in politics. It is rare we ever get to hear more than two opposing sides.
I would really like to hear more about the state of NJ.;
The Democrats don’t know – nor care – much about what is going on here. You want answers go to http://www.LoneganForSenate.com
Go play with the Republicans!
I do that too. They understand how politics should be.
I still need to show the Democrats the truth. They’re too deceived by the liberal media.
Pallone talked about past environment protection achievements- I like that! , but he is not hawkish enough with defending US in a dangerous world and seems too liberal. Booker’s good point so far was his support of Russia, but he is also too soft on defense, not siding with NSA. Oliver emphasized her experience with the whole state of NJ- good point; and she is ok with NSA protecting us; very nice. So far, Oliver is the big surprise here – she seems to have the best balance and courage thus far; she is not afraid to take an “independent” common sense stand depending on the issue. Oliver had GREAT point on Snowden issue; asking most important question on outsourcing and why did the young man get that much info to begin with. Oliver seems the best, however only half hour into debate………
the tragic murders in Newark are on Booker’s watch.He will care about you just as much as he cares about the dead bodies in his wake.
What do you want to do about Social Security and Medicare?
State Sen. Oliver just lost me on the Syria question. Whatever we do will be wrong. Rep. Holt reminds us – the arms we left with the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan are now being used against us. STAY AWAY!
I was actually hoping someone would make that point
Cory Booker did not only lie about he declining crime rate in Newark. He is a friend of Wall Street. He could care less about the middle class. He pals around with John Walton and Mark Zuckerberg to destroy public education and to trun it over the big business. He hates unions. He’s a buddy of Chris Christie. I would not even consider him a democrat. I’m going with Rush Holt.

Shut up Pallone. Don’t bash the Tea Party. We believe in protecting our liberties guaranteed in the Constitution, lowering taxes and not spending MORE than the government makes!
The tea party is only interested in protecting the second half of the second ammendment.
No. The entire thing. Even the part about Militias. Although they just aren’t as common so it hasn’t came up in the debate as often.
But people not in a militia still get unlimited access to any kind of weaponry for any reason? Sorry, your words are hollow. The actions of the tea party support my statement, not yours.
No. You’re wrong and I am right about this. There is no debate about that. As Steve Lonegan said, we already had this debate 237 years ago.
The Founding Fathers set a system in to place. Perhaps you heard of it. It’s called the United States Constitution.
Remember this acronym. TIC. Tyranny, Invasion, and Crime. That’s EXACTLY why people in a “Well-Regulated Militia” should have access to any weapon they need. To protect the people from those 3 things.
If you think that we deserve a royalty where the people are accountable to, and owned by, the government, rather than people owning the government that they elect, then go back to England. I’m sure you’ll love it there.
But over here, this is America, where we like our liberty. Don’t tread on us.
No, you’re wrong and I’m right, so there.
Pallone has abused the constitution. He has backed the use of eminent domain as economic redevelopment. He’s a dumb a$$
Pallone and Holt doing a great job. much better than Booker and I really like him. This is what is so great about debates.
Not one idea for NJ’s economic revival
To be fair, not one question yet either. Then again, this is for US senator, not state senate.
I thought business was supposed to do that, not the government.
I agree completely. What’s up with NJ? These people are running for Senator of NJ!
US Senate makes national decisions. This is not for state senate.
Downtown Newark still looks like a big, sad slum. What is Booker talking about? He didn’t do it in Newark. We need to consider other candidates — Holt, Oliver and Pallone are candidates we need to fully consider.
If your income is $500K a year you should pay the same income tax as those making $50K.
Fig Newtons are now made in Mexico for God’s sake!!!
Wow, I had never heard of Sheila Oliver before tonight. She is a powerhouse. I am impressed.
I think Oliver is fantastic. I have seen her speak about older suburbs and other issues before. She states her opinions in a very clear, analytical way. Her candidacy should be taken seriously. She is not all smoke and mirrors.
I am also impressed with Oliver.
Cory Booker is a great candidate for Senator.
I think so too.
STOP LUSTING, HE DOES NOT WANT YOU!
Note that eveyone has a great deal of insight on issues EXCEPT for Booker. He just says all what you want to hear….DID HE JUST SAY THAT HE CARES ABOUT PUBLIC SCHOOLS…..LIE, LIE, LIE….HE HATES TEACHERS AND PUBLIC EDUCTION…… HE WANTS IT TURNED OVER TO BUSINESS. LIAR….
Expanding the school day? That creates depression in the youth.
And where did that one million go? It should have went to new tables and books for the students. Not just for the teachers.
Go RUSH….BOOKER IS A VOUCHER MAN…..Vouchers are simply a way to filter tax money to private business…..
Booker lies….He is a CHRISTIE SUPPORTOR…..
As a mother of two children in NJ public schools, I’m with Rush Holt!!! We need to invest in schools and not turn schools into a market-based enterprise. We MUST invest in teachers!
Kate… wait till your kids are in college and you go through the college loan morass. Schools are market-based enterprises already. It’s been creeping into the social fabric for years. If you get involved in your local schools you will learn more about how up-to-date your kids’ teachers really are. Why do you think the USA is now #27 in the list of countries with respect to math skills? Many of our teachers are, frankly, not all that good. What are you going to do about the teachers unions and existing ineffective K-12 teachers? We need a major shift in the US educational system, not some feel-good, sound-good, short term band-aid on the problem. I’m not impressed with Holt. Glib, play-to-the-crowd answers are not a strategy I’d trust going forward.
So then you better not vote for Booker because that’s all you’ll get!
There are not that good because their jobs are in jeopardy and they get paid nothing so most good teachers leave
Glad you are talking about Teachers and Education with that great penmanship. Where did you go to school? Great example.
BOOKER FOR SENATE!
Who is Tothian? A Republican wants to listen to a Democratic debate! Yeah!
Yes. Single payer. “Obamacare” might be better than nothing, but it is also capitalism at its worst. Mandating you give businesses your money, and all those businesses jacked up rates the moment it was passed.
Go Senator Oliver! Pull down the curtain of hyperbole and lies in the city of Oz aka Newark. We see the Wizard clearly with all of his tricks.
NY Times removed this comment from their endorsement this weekend, but they can’t remove it from here: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/14/nyregion/promise-vs-reality-in-newark-as-mayor-eyes-higher-office.html?_r=0
SHEILA OLIVER SHOULD THE NEXT U.S. SENATE.
No. Steve Lonegan needs to be the next Senator.
SHEILA OLIVER SHOULD BE THE NEX U.S. SENATOR.
SHEILA OLIVER SHOULD BE THE NEXT U.S. SENATOR. A VERY SMART CANDIDATE.
Since this debate I’m considering voting for Sheila Oliver. We need more women in government.
That is a blatantly sexist view. I never heard of her before today, and after this, I would be happy to have her in the US Senate. However, we need better PEOPLE in the Senate regardless of race, sex, creed, etc.
SHEILA OLIVER FOR U.S. SENATOR.
Booker: “Give me a chance to make all of New Jersey just like Newark.”
ONSD… Sheila Oliver brought up the gender card.
Why is that good?
SHEILA OLIVER IS COMPLETE RIGHT ABOUT THE OLD BOYS NETWORK.
No she isn’t. She’s wrong. Vote for Steve Lonegan for U.S. Senate!
Hey can you go cook me something in the kitchen lol
THIS COURNTRY IS RUN BY MALE EGOS.
Sheila is kicking Booker’s big fat orivate equity a$$!
THIS COUNTRY IS RUN BY MALE EGOS, THAT IS WHY NOTHING CAN GET DONE IN AMERICA.
wow what a useless statement
What about that mishugunah Tea Party lady from Minnesota?
THE POLITICIANS ARE THE MASTERS AND THE VOTERS ARE THE SLAVES. POLITICIANS WOULD LOOK RIGHT IN TO THE CAMERA AND LAUGH (SMILE) IN YOUR FACES AS THEY TELL LIES AFTER LIES.
IT IS ONLY A POSITION OF POWER FOR THEM AND THEIR FAMILY (POLITICIANS) THEY DONOT CARE ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR THEM. POLITICS IS A RACKET FOR POWER AND PREVILEGE.
AMERICANS WILL STAND IN LINE TO VOTE FOR THE SAME WORTHLESS MALE POLITICIANS, ESPECIALLY MALE POLITICIANS WHO HAS NO MORALS AND COMMON SENSE. PAY ATTENTION TO LATEST MALE POLITICIANS IN THE NEWS FOR THEIR BAD BEHAVIOR. (WEINER, SPITZER, FILNER AND OTHERS PAST POLITICIANS. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS POWER, JUST HUMAN ILLUSION OF POWER. THINK ABOUT IT!
Thought about it…. your dumb
IT IS ABOUT GENDER, MEN ONLY SUPPORT OTHER MEN IN POLITICS AND BUSINESS AS LONG AS THEY CAN PAY FOR PLAY. AGAIN THAT IS WHY THIS COUNTRY MESS-UP. BOYS WILL ALWAYS BE BOYS AND NEVER MEN.
someone is scapegoating the issues and making this a gender based discussion …….sad
Not true. Many men voted for McGreevey.
I’m with Rush!!!
SHEILA IS QUITE A LADY…AND REAL ADVOCATE FOR CHILDREN AND THE POOR…
raising the conversation about jobs situation, there was not one comment on our job situation here in NJ 45 in counrty is a huge problem. When you brag how good things are you are not looking at keeping ahead.
