Hey Big Spender

Yesterday, Gov. Rendell held a press conference to make note that Tom Corbett was overstating the amount of Pennsylvania taxpayer money Rendell was wasting on pork-barrel projects. Examples cited include the Arlen Specter Library, funded via the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP).

While the Specter Library is easy to pick on — because it’s such an egregious use of taxpayer money, and since Specter may have had a hand in the demise of the Library of Alexandria in 48 BC — there have been other notable issues with the recent use of RACP funds (i.e., state government debt for pork projects).

To highlight Gov. Rendell’s tax, borrow, and spend record, Matt Brouillette will be joining the Spending Revolt Bus Tour at a number of stops across Pennsylvania this week and next.
