Governor opens up in candid interview with Neil Cavuto

In an interview to be presented on Fox Business Network's Cavuto Wednesday at 6 p.m., New Jersey Governor Chris Christie told Neil Cavuto that public sector workers must "share the sacrifice" with the private sector, that he will not run for President and reaffirmed his plan to cut taxes.

On the teachers unions blasting him over cutting programs:

"Teachers don't dislike me, the teachers unions dislike me. There is a real difference.

"They're wrong, they're dramatizing it. They are playing to the grandstand; they are playing to their own constituency. When you make those hard choices, you know you are going to anger, hurt or disappointed some people. This who I am, this is what I was elected to do. It doesn't mean I will necessarily be reelected because I will anger special interest groups that are powerful in this state. I am not going to back off what I promised to do, that is my covenant with the people of this state."

On public workers feeling he is attacking them:

"If we don't change (the pension system), that pension won't be there for the people who are complaining about it right now. The public sector has been shielded from this recession in New Jersey.
