    Just keep telling women voters that same thing over and over. Since you are digging your own grave, you might as well start carrying a shovel around.

    •  Links to much much more on Corbett (0+ / 0-)

      I'm glad there is finally a little bit of national attention to what PA. Governor Corbett has been doing. This is a target-rich environment. You can read much more at the following link, with has many stories and links.

      This includes a $955 million cut to public schools, a 50% cut proposed in state funding to the largest state universities, eliminating food stamps for households with more than $5,000 in assets, and passing the lowest tax/fee on the natural gas industry in the country (after years of delay). The latest slashing of funding to public universities is being accomplished in order to fund a $250 million business tax cut.

      Corbett has also made no effort to address a funding crisis that is eliminating half of all mass transit service in the Pittsburgh area, and the crumbling of many major bridges.

      And let's also not forget that Corbett as Attorney General was given full responsibility for investigating and prosecuting Jerry Sandusky almost THREE YEARS before Sandusky was charged with any crimes. According to news reports, only one part-time investigator was assigned to the Sandusky case.  

      JPZenger was a newspaper publisher whose jury trial in the 1730s for seditious libel helped establish the freedom to criticize top government officials.
