Last night, when it wasn't talking about people who NEVER FORGET, 60 Minutes was busy talking about just how messed up the state of state debt has become across the nation. And who better to talk up the topic than everyone's favorite tunnel-cutting Governor, Chris Christie. Between depressing statistics the Jersey gov showed up to chat about the serious problem of states spending beyond their means: "The federal government doesn't have the money to paper over it anymore, either, for the states," Christie said. "The day of reckoning has arrived."

Naturally, the canceled tunnel came up ("I canceled it. I mean, listen, the bottom line is I don't have the money. And you know what? I can't pay people for those jobs if I don't have the money to pay them. Where am I getting the money? I don't have it. I literally don't have it.") but Christie also got airtime to talk about comparisons between him and Tony Soprano ("Well, as an Italian American, I take great offense to that," he laughed) while glossing over the fact that many of the state's pension problems can be traced to the state's mismanagement. And for those who can't get enough Christie around Christmas-time, he also offers a bonus online video where he explains how it got so bad.

As for solutions, Chirstie's main one seems to be cutting back benefits. "We have a benefit problem," he said. "It's not an income problem from the state. It's a benefit problem. And so we gotta change those benefits."
