Gov. Corporate just flip flopped and announced he may be in favor of a state government mandated tax on gas drillers.

The only problem is Gov. Corporate wants an unconstitutional gas drilling tax. Corbett wants a special gas drilling tax where all tax money collected only goes to the communities or local governments where gas drilling is actaully being done. Not to the states general fund.

Every man for himself mentality.

I would have to see what they would propose, and where the money would go," he said. "Money just to the general fund? No. Money to the locals? Money to the county? I'd sit down and listen to them

I'm not sure if Gov. Corbett is just plain stupid or just doesn't care that this kind of a special tax is unconstitutional in Pennsylvania.

Certain Local and Special Laws

Section 32.

The General Assembly shall pass no local or special law in any case which has been or can be provided for by general law and specifically the General assembly shall not pass any local or special law.

1. Regulating the affairs of counties, cities, townships, wards, boroughs, or school districts

7. regulating labor, trade, mining or manufacturing.

This man is slowing losing it in front of our eyes.

On a lighter note did you see where Governor Corporate was booed in his hometown twice and hasn't been in office three months or even passed a budget.

Republicans in Pennsylvania better get ready to be pounded in the 2012 elections because "We the People" will speak loudly.

Mike you just let them business make their free market profits, and then the government mandated socialist money will come in and clean up their mess.

The middleclass taxpayer is just the janitor for the corporations in a Republican led government.

It's that bad since the Republicans like Pa. State Senator Mike Folmer took over our state government that they fired the unionized cafeteria workers.

Gas drillers are raping our land, polluting our water and making millions and millions of dollars from our gas. Their shared sacrifice IN Gov. Corporate's budget is O.

Not in my lifetime will Pa. State Republican be government reformers.

Argall is proposing a drawdown of the Legislature by 50 House seats and five senators. He would accomplish this over a geological time frame, with the finished product in the Senate complete in 2033 and the House in 2053.

What a joke this Republican Party has become. You Pa. lawmakers can really look in a mirror and still blame public school teachers for this states financial problems.

This is like Republicans in the state of Pa. kicking the can off the earth.

Corbett either won't tax gas dillers at all, already receives huge profits from gas drillers or may still allow local impact taxes on gas drillers.

You figure it out. Governor Corbett lost me at hello.
