I knew it then and I can clearly see it now. I am beyond angry right now with the Governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Corbett. During his campaign last year we were told he would govern much like our neighbor next door, Governor Chris Christie. Governor Corbett has fallen well short of that campaign promise. Actually, I think h
This weekend Corbett negotiated a 10% increase in pay for the state workers union. Soon after I read this bit of news I received a call from a patriot friend of mine who she relayed to me a story of a woman she met yesterday who hocked her wedding rings to buy food. Did Corbett ask as he shook the hand of the union boss to seal the deal "at who's cost?" When a deal like this is made it is ALWAYS at the cost of someone else: in this case it is at the cost of the taxpayers of Pennsylvania.
I've found out that the Governor's budget proposal will fill the gap where the federal governments stimulus left off. $2.4B is now being put on the backs of Pennsylvanians because, again, Corbett has no spine and is no leader. Governor Corbett has done EXACTLY what the Obama administration was hoping. Give the states money with the stimulus. Then the state will become addicted and will fill the gap once we stop the flow of cash. Here in Pennsylvania that is what is about to happen.
Go ahead Corbett, give Obama what he wanted. Get a spine is all I can say. Be a leader.
My final fit goes to the Governor's own agenda. His first two priorities were: school choice and privatizing the liquor stores. It has been six months since he has taken office and NEITHER has come to fruition.
The Tea Party movement in Pennsylvania worked wonders last election cycle to deliver a Republican strong hold. And this is what we ended up with...a RINO.
Let's just pray that he either wakes up and actually leads or is primaried during the next governors race...until then hold on because it's going to be a bumpy ride.
