Under Corbett Job creation in PA fell from 5th in the Nation to 44th. Education fell from 10th to 47th. This Governor has done nothing for PA bu the[p give his friends in the natural gas companies a free ride. PA is the only state that doesn't tax gas drillers. The money that we lost is close to a 100 million dollars that could have he[ped fix our infrastructure and helped out school districts in the state.

check your facts. Pa. already has a tax on drillers. Your an idiot if you think the gas drillers will pay a new tax. They will just increase your home heating gas bill to cover the tax.

A President Who Ran Promising Peace Cautiously Declares War
September 10, 2014
Obama's address was a striking escalation over his past rhetoric.
Never has a declaration of war been so cautious. Never has an American president spent so much time talking about what the declaration doesn't mean and left so many questions about what it does mean.
But what President Obama put forth in his nationally televised address Wednesday night still was a declaration of wareven if he did prefer to call it a "counterterrorism campaign."
What made it more remarkable was that it was delivered by a president who ran for office on an antiwar platform and hoped his legacy would be leaving the nation at peace.
This is the president who, 19 months ago in a speech at the National Defense University, stated that the war on terrorism, "like all wars, must end"; who 33 weeks ago in his State of the Union address said, "America must move off a permanent war footing"; and who 14 days ago told reporters that "we don't have a strategy yet" for combating the Islamist terrorist group, ISIS, that has seized broad swaths of territory in Iraq and Syria.

PHILADELPHIA A poll of voters likely to cast ballots in Pennsylvanias gubernatorial election shows they prefer Democrat Tom Wolf over Republican incumbent Tom Corbett by a 24-point margin.
The Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday shows Mr. Wolf, a wealthy businessman, is favored by 59 percent of likely voters compared with 35 percent for Mr. Corbett.
At least half said Mr. Wolf would do a better job handling the issues of jobs, education, government spending and taxes.
Fifty-four percent said they believe Mr. Wolf is honest and trustworthy; 21 percent said he wasnt. For Mr. Corbett, 43 percent of respondents said they believe he his honest and trustworthy and 43 percent said he wasnt.
Quinnipiac culled the 1,161 likely voters from more than 1,500 registered voters, based on their stated intentions and voting records, in telephone interviews between Sept. 3 and 8. The sampling error margin is plus or minus 2.9 points.

Question for wolf supporters. Where do you think he is going to get the money for all his plans? If he taxes gas wells more than already taxed, your heating bills will go up. If he raises Pa income tax you will pay more for your own taxes, plus more for everything you buy, because sellers will raise prices to pay higher tax. He falsely claims Corbett cut a billion dollars from education, and he wants to put it back. Does wolf think a magic genie is going to drop a truckload of gold on the Capitol steps if he gets elected? Wolf supporters either make a lot of money and not worried about paying more for everything, or they are living of the gov. and don't pay taxes.

Governor Corbetts Budget Cuts Over $1.1 Billion in Education
Governor Corbett recently released the details of his proposed state budget for 2011-2012, including staggering cuts to basic education (over $1.1 BILLION). This budget represents an outrageous lack of understanding of the value and importance of public school to the future of our kids, our communities and our economy. These cuts will affect all Pennsylvanians and our legislators need to hear from us NOW about how this is the wrong choice for Pennsylvania.
Here are a few talking points:
We need strong public schools to ensure a full economic recovery; shortchanging our future workforce is the last thing we want to do when the economy is just beginning to bounce back.
Investments in public education are working; PA has show student achievement improvements in every subject and grade level tested in the past several years. These cuts risk losing ground on that progress.
Every $1 spent on early education yields $7 in savings � including reduced costs of crime, drug use and teen parenting. This budget gives an increase to prisons but cuts education, and that does not make sense.
Before cutting education legislators need to ask corporation to pay their fair share like the rest of us. We need to tax natural gas extraction and smokeless tobacco, like every other state.
These cuts put the following at risk: after school programs, efforts to reduce class size, tutoring and mentoring, full-day kindergarten and other early education funding in the form of accountability block grants (ABGs). These things have all proven time and time again to be some of the best ways to improve education, and we need to preserve programs and practices that are proven to work.
Details on the budget:
School districts would lose more than $1 billion of state and federal stimulus funding.
Basic Education Subsidy reduced by $550 million.
Accountability Block Grants were eliminated, a loss of $259.456 million - Much of this was used by districts to support early education.
Charter school reimbursement to districts is eliminated, a loss of $224.083 million - These payments reimbursed school districts for about 25% of their charter school costs; helping to offset fixed costs that districts still incur when a student leaves and the district makes a payment for them.
Special Education would be flat-funded for the 3rd consecutive year at ($1.026 billion).
Career and Technical Education was level funded at $62 million.
Other cuts to school districts amount to more than $50 million.
These other basic education items are eliminated entirely:
Basic Education Formula Enhancements ($1.984 million)
Enrollment Payments ($6.959 million)
School Improvement Grants ($10.797 million)
Education Assistance Program ($47.606 million)
Science It�s Elementary ($6.910 million)
Mobile Science Education Program ($1.6 million)
� Intermediate Units ($4.761 million)
Entity Demonstration Projects ($600 thousand)
High School Reform ($1.762 million)
Lifelong Learning ($825 thousand)
Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic ($69 thousand)
Job Training Programs ($3.442 million)

I have checked the facts. Fact: Drillers in PA do not pay a tax to drill. They only pay a one time small fee to the state to obtain a license to drill in the State. After that they pay no fee or tax.
#58393 Sep 11, 2014
Tom Wolf will put out of business all the drilling companies in Pa, we will get rid of them we don't need our water and air polluted..... and cause cancer for over 5 million people in Pa.
Vote Tom Wolf !!
