Our governors in PA are in the RINO tradition and the legislature has Republican RINO leaders who get money and or endorsements from the teachers union (Pennsylvania State Eduation Association).
Governor Tom Corbett doesn’t have ten percent of the stuff that Scott Walker has and he’s wimpy compared to Chris Christie who I consider to be a RINO but at least one willing to demand concessions from unions (copay for health insurance costs) and ask for salary caps on school superintendents.
