Senators vs. Pork

Not a game between minor league baseball teams, but three State Senators (Jane Orie, R-Allison Park, Pat Vance, R-Silver Spring Twp, and Pat Browne, R-Allentown) trying to Shift Focus of Economic Development Work. Specifically they are calling for the elimination of the Commonwealth Financing Authority, and doing "economic development" through lower taxes, rather than corporate welfare grants.

Read in our Pennsylvania Piglet Book how the Commonwealth Financing Authority funds politically connected corporations, adds debt for future generations to pay, and absorbs tax dollars while remaining off the state budget.
