GOP governor Corbett has slashed school funding and given billions in corporate welfare out - it's taken us all the way from 7th to 49th in job creation and dug a $2 billion deficit.
So, clearly, his plan is more business tax cuts and handouts. This time it's sure to work!!!

I honestly don't understand why he is even running for re-election.

Because like most "Fiscal Conservatives" he does not think that he has done a single thing wrong.

There are lots of problems with their statements about PA.

There is a strong dichotomy between the sweeping rural areas, and the major metropolitan areas (Pittsburg & Philly), and that is why our financial policies are shiatty... having said that, the unemployment rate is very low (6.2%) and we have an enormous economy (6th largest in the US).  But sure, we aren't ready for another recession...who is.

I'd always thought Pittsburgh had a pretty decent economy ... it's first on my list of places to go if living on the fringes of the DC area doesn't go well ...

He's like every other moron who espouses non-stop bullshiat. He has said it enough times he actually believes it is true.

I made the mistake of voting for him once. I don't care if his opponent is a goat buggerer, I'm still voting against that asshole.

Just remember to say "One Term Tommy" as much as possible. I'm hoping the PSU alumni come in droves against him as well.

farker couldn't even disassociate the state from booze sales.

And the Democrats here are just union cronies, so I probably won't cast any votes other than Libertarian the whole time I live here.

It has. If you do move; I'll buy you a drink.

/Corbett needs to be fired... Preferably out of a canon... Into the sun.

As much as he has sucked, at least he did try.  He was just too busy dealing with his other shortcomings to get it based everyone in the state legislature  who were bought by the PLCB (majority of the Dems, and some Repubs).

Had to leave the state after school to find work, even with an engineering degree. Central pa is a joke for prospect, even with the natural gas boom

PA alcohol 'state stores' are the least of our worries right now (hey and if they ever legalize weed in PA, they already have a perfectly good distribution setup!..not like it will happen in a million years).
I live in a wealthy suburban town outside of Philly, but it is hard to imagine that the vast majority of the state (eg. the area between Philly and Pittsburgh), is in pretty dire conditions.
