I can only hope Corbett and his fellow state Republicans Senate follow the union busting lead of Wisconsin.

The Democratic Party will be running Pennsylvania for the next ten years if that happens.

Go for it Republicans.

The federal government never envisioned having to bailout your right wing friend Frank Ryan using $9.2 million dollars of our tax money.

But they did and Frank Ryan gladly took taxpayers corporate welfare to save his paycheck.

It sure didn't take Republican Tom Corbutt long to suck off the state goverment and taxpayers and run up a huge medical bill on our dime.

Lucky for Corbutt he wasn't getting his healthcare from Adult Basic.

You're absolutely right! Busting public unions is too profound a change for Pennsylvanians to tolerate.

For decades now, new parents here have gazed upon their l'il bundles of joy in maternity wards and said a silent prayer that their children would grow up to be turnpike toll collectors or state liquor store clerks, whose pay, including benefits, would top out at over $75,000.00 a year for making correct change; stocking shelves, and grimacing when being asked simple requests from the general public. How dare anybody even suggest we tarnish this proud heritage?

Private sector unions form out of workers interest for company profits. Private business seeks profit.

Municipalities are not profit making businesses. Their only source of revenue is tax payers wealth.

Public Sector Unions should be Illegal......
