Criticizes Dems for blocking tax breaks.

Gov. Chris Christie is going to the shore Monday to talk tax cuts.

The Republican governor's office says he'll spend much of the summer holding public forums along the coast to bash Democratic lawmakers, who he says are blocking tax breaks.
Christie's first event is scheduled for Monday at an outdoor pavilion in Manasquan.
Even though the state budget has been passed and signed, Christie and Democrats are still battling over it.
Both sides say there should be a tax cut in January. Democrats say they want to make sure the state is bringing in adequate revenue first.
Christie says relief should be promised to taxpayers now.
