The House That Jeter Built

Filed under: economics — Tags: , , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 10:17 am

Yankee baseball player Derek Jeter has built a $7.7 million home in Tampa.  He’s a good  ballplayer, but he must be making a good deal more than the $67,000 the average New Jersey public school teacher gets.  Why is Governor Christie so upset?  He did his best by lowering taxes on the wealthy last month.  Now he’s taking away healthcare and pensions from those uppity teachers.  If only they could hit a hanging curve.
