Politics as usual is taking Pennsylvania down the wrong path. We are now behind Alabama, Missouri, Kentucky, Wyoming, Arkansas, Iowa, Montana, Idaho and others in the most important areas.

Let me put this another way, our economy is the 16th worst in the country. We are #2 in largest unemployment increase in the country - 1% higher unemployment than the national average. It is time to get businesses to come to Pennsylvania and bring new people and employees here because we rank 46th in population growth.

As one of the highest taxes states already, do we really want to increase taxes again to fix our infrastructure?
It is time for Change in Pennsylvania! We are not doing well in neither our short-term nor our long-term financial stability.

A study by George Mason University found Pennsylvania to be the worst in the country in financial stability.
46th highest juvenile's incarcerated? Overall rated as 50 out of 50 in total corrections? What are we doing in Pennsylvania? It is time to stop the insanity and stop it now.
