was he down to 20% approval ratings before he sign this?
Corbett was having a rough time between allegations he was cutting school funding from the teachers unions (not true).
He’s increased spending a bit for education. And then there was the massive emotional issue of Jerry Sandusky and the effect of his case on Penn State football and Joe Paterno.
Obama and the Democrats even have his son Jay Paterno running for Congress as their candidate in the district that includes the university campus and surrounding areas.
This is political suicide for Governor Corbett, but I think he’s counting on campaign contributions from business for signing this tax hike and hopes he can use that money to sell himself to victory.
