Yes I know it is New Jersey and as such is just about where corruption was invented (New York can give us a run for the money) but this is just about as big a Sailor's Salute a politician can give the people of his state:
As one of only the two remaining states where pumping your own gas remains illegal this sellout stands up on NJ101.5 and declares that he doesn't care what the people of NJ want, he will never allow the bill to end this to be brought up for a vote. The fact that one paid sellout has been given the power to pull off such an insult to taxpayers is further evidence that the Garden State is arguably the northbound end of a southbound horse.

A long time ago when you went to get gas someone would come out pump your gas, check your oil and wash all your windows. Then self serve came and to save a couple cents per gallon you could pump it yourself. Pretty soon that was all the stations and then...
The price went back up to the full service price and you got no service and you were just stuck with it.
Why in the world would you want to pump your own gas if you didn't have to?
