And, as expected though protested, he turned down Obamacare for us.

Even Grover fucking Norquist is criticizing him, and these guys, like, never break ranks.

This is the part that says it all, to me:

We will never "tax cut" our way to prosperity. Over the short term, special-interest tax breaks create market distortions and provide questionable public benefit. Over the long term, tax breaks weaken the commonwealth's ability to make investments that do grow our economy - in public education, colleges, public safety, and infrastructure. Pennsylvania is spending nearly $2.5 billion, almost 10 percent of this year's state budget, on corporate tax cuts.
