Tens of thousands rally against budget cuts

More than 35,000 New Jersey residents descended upon the state's capitol today to protest Gov. Chris Christie's budget cuts.

The groups that came out to protest are angry that Christie vetoed the 'millionaire's tax' and are dissatisfied with his package of 33 bills that would cut services and school aid.

Christie has been under intense scrutiny from all sides regarding his decision to call for workers to accept wage freezes and asking them to contribute toward their health benefits.

Those in attendance say they hope Christie will reconsider his policies.
