Then Christie came back to New Jersey and signed off on a cold, hard government regulation that blocks Tesla from selling its cars in the state. The rule change prohibits automakers from selling directly to consumers, as Tesla does. Instead, it requires them to go through franchised, third-party dealerships, as the big, traditional car companies do. In other words, it requires that the middle-men get their cut. The Christie Administration made the move unilaterally, via the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission. It was urged on by lobbyists for the state’s existing car dealerships, which fear the competition. The upshot is that Tesla will be forced to stop selling cars at its two existing dealerships in the state, and drop its plans to build more. It’s unclear what will happen to the employees of those dealerships.

Chris is not a conservative he is a fat scum bag progressive. Republicans if you consider yourself conservative you are no longer a republican.
Progressive scum control both parties. See the truth. Chris and his buddies are not conservatives do not vote for them.
Proving once again that Republicans only believe in the free market when it benefits them
The free market capitalism and deregulation touted out by republicans is a sham and this is a prime example.
