    we're screwed in very blue PA. Because our government is in some little burg in the middle of the state where the media pays no attention to it, our Republican governor smartly keeps his mouth closed and looks cherubic while gutting the Programs for the poor, and the voters have no idea who runs state government, how it is run and how much impact it has on their lives.  The Republican-controlled legislature is intent on ALEC's agenda, voter suppression and gerrymandering.
    One quick example -- the gov, Tom Corbett, laid off most of the state workers whose job it was to process unemployment benefits (generously allowing those workers to process their own applications before walKing out the door.) Now we have people eligible for UI for more than six months still trying to sign up to get the benefits. Can't get through on the phone, can't get though online. Our major newspapers try to keep us informed but TV news is AWOL.
