Making his case

The Republican establishment, during the three years it has controlled Harrisburg, has pursued polices that will raise the annual tax burden by close to $1,000 for many Pennsylvanians by 2018 — at least those who own homes and have jobs. If this angers you, if this sickens you, if this makes you feel betrayed, vote for me on May 20.

I am running to be the Republican nominee for governor against incumbent Tom Corbett. I will not implement the Corbett gas tax. I will move to sell the liquor stores.

I will fight to ban school strikes and other things that cause unnecessary increases to your property tax. I will stop Common Core.

I will not sign any union contract that contains automatic, forced union-dues deductions. I will not sign any budget that spends more this year than last, and I will gore the special-interest spending oxen to protect the forgotten taxpayer.

Tom Corbett cannot win in November. I can.
