Now this is how a real economy works. No tax payer "stimulus" needed. Just the freedom to produce. Liberals hate it and hope to destroy it with excessive taxation. Prosperous independent people don't need big government.
Just the radiator repair work is better for our economy than the whole bio-fuels industry.

Only so long as losers allow themselves to be destroyed economically. Good example. The casino merely transfers wealth from the stupid to the government and produces only poverty.

Excessive taxation, you ignorant little putz? How about the fact there's NO taxation? And that PA is the only state in the union giving away the state's natural resources by failing to enact a fair extraction tax... an action even the indutry proposed! What a ridiculous exaggeration... no, actually, a bold faced lie as there is no extraction taxation for Marcellus Shale gas in PA What a right wing-nut whack-job; just like our crony-capitalist, take-care-of-my-donors Tom Corbett!

The real "losers" in PA are the voters who elected Tom Corbett! Unfortunately, we all will suffer the negative consequences of a man who combines crony-capitalism with political cronyism!

Natural gas is a commodity, fool! Fairly taxing it, and regulating drilling and extraction to protect our farms, country-side towns and cities will add no cost to that price, as every other state already does it, numnutz! Another right-wing whack-job waiting for the day that will NEVER come: when Republican governance will make him rich.

Corporate taxes, payroll taxes on direct income and jobs created plus the spin offs as cited in the article. What an ignorant fool. No taxes, indeed.

Read my post carefully, putz; I said EXTRACTION tax, an entirely different matter from corporate taxes (which most evade) or payroll taxes... but then you're probably too ignorant regarding the topic to understand the difference. You are stupid... INDEED!

Oh good. ANOTHER tax to pass on to consumers. What's the matter, commie, energy isn't expensive enough for you. Let's try spending less and allowing business to create jobs. The opposite of your outdated ideas.
I thought you opposed drilling, yet you want huge new taxes on it. Reconcile that, fool.
When you own the resource then you can do what you choose with it. Now mind your own business, fascist.

Where do you get your electric, gasoline and natural gas from? How would you live without it?
Besides, NO president has given away more cash to corporations than Obama.
You're just too dumb to know it.

12 other state tax the drillers, why didn't PA? Guess those folks didn't pay off the governors. Corbett is in the pocket of the gas companies. Wait until the gas well blows up in your backyard, or your water get contaminated by the well runoff. Then you'll be screaming for something to be done.

Are they waiting for permission from Boner to start creating them? Or the next election? Business is sitting on over 1 trillion in cash. What are they waiting for? Tax breaks at the expense of taxpayers and consumers so they don't have to risk 'their' money or the shareholders? Once again, Americans held hostage by business welfare recipients.

No, these nitwits want the EPA disbanded, too.
