New Jersey governor mugged by reality

This hardly ever happens.

Gov. Jon S. Corzine said finding health insurance for the 1.4 million New Jerseyans who lack it ranks among New Jersey's top problems, but he doesn't expect to solve the plight in 2008.

He said the state -- facing a projected $3 billion budget deficit for next year -- cannot afford it.

"We have relatively finite resources," the Democratic governor said. "As a matter of fact, I don't even think we have resources."
