Great article! Corbett is lying about tax cuts on business. The gas industry contributed a million dollars to his campaign to buy this largesse.

Corbett doesn't seem to grasp that laying off thousands of teachers and public servants to pay for his tax cuts for the rich doesn't exactly help the employment bottom line.

The bottom line is WE NEED TEACHERS.

Three months in office and Tommy is already being sued by Pa residents concerning abolishing the Adult Basic program. Money used for the program was from tobacco companies payment to states. Seems Tommy wants to use the money for other things. Only problem is the money must be spent towards the health care of Pa citizens. Was on Huff Post main page but not in the P.O.?
It was in the P.O. Tuesday

My broker told me just today that the Marcelles Shale Natural Gas reserve is the largest of its kind in the world. Putting money in that is a gold mine. The gas companies will not cut jobs because of a few hundered million in taxes. Thats chump change to the billions they are going to make.
dont get it wrote:
So whats the difference between gas companies cutting jobs and teachers loosing jobs? Job loss is job loss.

The school has been adding all kinds of teachings in the public schools and some are not necessary and some shouldn't be taught at all so the cuts will presist for one tax payer i refuse to pay for non assential education that teaches things like James Bucanan did when Obama was running for election and each student HAD to watch his silver toung speach on tv and give a report on their thoughts of him(that is not letting a person decide for their selves and a attempt to influence a person to do what is meby wrong to them.
