Corporate “wealthfare” is happening all around us
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review editorial, The PNC rip-off: False renaissance, is just the latest example of taxpayers subsidizing the bottom line of major corporations.
Remember the $2 Billion Gov. Rendell “borrowed,” with the help of the General Assembly, in 2004? Now it’s spending time!
As we draw near to election day, watch for a flurry of events involving novelty sized checks being delivered not only to big businesses like PNC, but other special interests all across the commonwealth that might assist at the ballot box.
