Did you consider that we might not prefer either candidate and that we might have a reason for our dislike and distrust of Corbett?
And, yes, I'm a Republican who WILL NOT vote for Corbett under any circumstances.
Property tax elimination funded by a broadened SUT base has been on the table for a number of years in the form of HB 1275, the School Property Tax Elimination Act, championed by Representative Sam Rohrer. The bill has been killed twice by special interests, particularly the gambling lobby, and the majority of House Democrats who wanted to maintain the status quo.
What's interesting is that Rendell vehemently opposed the expansion of the SUT base for property tax elimination whenever it was discussed but then found the concept perfectly fine and adopted the idea when he wanted to use the money for more spending. Stunning hypocrisy from our tax-and-spend governor.
