Tom Corbett: Promises Made; Promises Broken — When Good Men and Women Do Nothing…..

Thu, 2014-01-16 22:02

  I am looking for people will to circulate petitions collecting signatures to put me on the primary ballot challenging Tom Corbett’s nomination.

I do not intend to spend any money and I am not asking for any contributions. I do not know how many people are actually angry enough to put someoe on the ballot who is independent of the Republican Party leadership. Denying Tom Corbett is to defeat a discredited and duplictious State Republican (?) Leadership(?). I have as much chance of winning next November as does Tom Corbett.

How angry are you? Angry enough to do something?

    Tom Corbett is funded by Obama Billionaire Philadelphia Comcast Democrats and State Committee brags about it defiantly.  Tom Corbett collaborates with Ed Rendell,and coalition of  SEPTA and mass transit ($480 to $495 million) , Philadelphia AFl-CIO and Pensylvania AFL-CIO, Big Business highway, road and brdige contractors to impose the largest gas and diesel fuel tax in 22 years, far bigger than any Rendell Tax increase  ( $7.3 to $7.5 Bbillion over 5 years  Fiscal Note Spread Sheet page 9). Tom Corbett: Promises Made; Promises Broken    Who pays for all of this? And how much better are our lives for this multi-multi billion dollar bipartisan spending bill? Cui Bono– who benefits? Bad things happen when good people do nothing.

Why would any Reform Republican, Tea Party Republican, 912 Republican or any Republican not profiting from politics, that is, any Republican who is not a Hack, want to support or vote for the RINOs who have repeatedly sold us out?

Three Tax Increases according Grover Norquist’s American’s For Tax Reform, Tom Corbett has violated is No New Taxes No New Fees Pledge THREE TIMES.

Tom Corbett made an unequivocal promise of “no new taxes; no new fees” and, cynically, Tom Corbett broke that promise, three times

Real Property Tax Relief – Eliminate Exemptions of Act 25 of 2011

Sat, 2014-01-04 10:25

 The most realistic and effective way to curtail ever escalating property tax is to tighten Act 25 of 2011 as well as the Penna. Department of Education’s tax increase index.  Act 25 of 2011 was passed by the Republican General Assembly and enacted into law by Republican governor Tom Corbett 30 June 2011. Since passage of the law, there have been NO REFERENDA of school taxes anywhere in Pennsylvania.

 

This was a classic cynical manipulation, like a three card Monte street hustler,  by Pennsylvania Republican Leadership to pretend they had helped The Forgotten Taxpayer when, in fact, they had rigged the game once again to create an illusion to deceive the voters and taxpayers. 

Pennsylvania Taxpayers spend $26,000,000 for government run K-12 school system.

Wed, 2014-01-01 18:08

  Steve Barrar  is voted AGAINST  Corbett’s $2.4 Bbillion dollar Tax Increase to fix Pennsylvania’s obvious crumbling roads and falling bridges.  Mike Fleck is Pro-Life but Not Pro Taxpayer

  House Vote Act 89 of 2013 (HB1060) 21 November 2013 Steve Barrar  voted YEA against Liberty, Economic Freedom and the Forgotten Taxpayer.

     Un like a Democrat, Steve Barrer voted against  for More spending and More Taxes (and more debt).

  Republican (?) Tom Corbett and uber Democrat Ed Rendell on Capitol steps rally for more spending and more taxes.

Republican (?) Tom Corbett and Ed Rendell joined together to lobby for more spending and more taxes. Corbett puppet Steve Barrar votes YEA.

  Big Business, Big Labor, Left Wing Environmentalists  and Big Government join together  to spend more and tax more. Cui bono? To whose benefit?   Not The Forgotten Taxpayers.
