Hey "Boss" -- why don't you donate, then?

From the "Shut Up and Sing" files: Bruce Springsteen at odds with N.J. Gov. Christie's budget.

Bruce Springsteen has weighed in again on politics, this time in a slap to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's budget plans and their impact on state services to help poor people.

In a letter published in his hometown newspaper, The Boss thanks the Asbury Park Press for a March 27 front-page story entitled, "As poverty rises, cuts target aid."

"The article is one of the few that highlights the contradictions between a policy of large tax cuts, on the one hand, and cuts in services to those in the most dire conditions, on the other."

With an estimated net worth of $500 million, I think The Boss is in more than a position to make any necessary donations to his pet causes, eh?
