Once again, Tim Holden is using taxpayer money to buy local votes and collect campaign contributions.
Doesn't anyone else object to his stripping so much money out of the Defense Department Appropriation bill denying our troops resources they need?
Now he's earmarking our tax dollars to benefit a corporation. Taking the risk out of a publicly held company's R&D investment is blatant corporate welfare. If Schott is to benefit, Schott should make the investment. The government isn't paying R&D costs for American auto makers, steel companies or the Hershey Company. Jeez. The Daily News just published a letter about George Gekas selling out to corporations. What's this?
Did anyone else notice that the money is actually going to another district, and that, only if research yields a successful process will anything come to Lebanon County? Glassmaking isn't high tech. Glassmaking production automation is, though.
Does anyone think that pharmaceutical companies are not doing this work already with their glassmaking packaging partners -- or their plastics packaging partners? They'd be crazy not to -- if, in fact, it's worth doing...
If Holden spent more time trying to lower our taxes, something he opposed in 2001, 2003 and 2005, or trying to reduce government spending, he would be of some value to us. Spending our money irresponsibly benefits only Tim Holden's re-election chances.
