New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie railed against spending by the federal government on Monday.

"If the federal government can't cut one cent out of a dollar and not bring the economy and the country to its knees, then the government is in awful shape to begin with," Christie (R-N.J.) said in regards to the sequester.

"Real leadership would get this fixed," he continued.

"Forty-two billion dollars is not a way to go and fix the long-term debt when you're sitting on a 16 trillion dollar debt."
