From the link:

Toomey helped craft the bipartisan agreement ending the 2011 debt-ceiling impasse, an agreement that also created sequestration


Isn't that economic hostage taking?

http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/docs/sequester-factsheets/Pennsylvania.pdf

If sequestration were to take effect, some examples of the impacts on Pennsylvania this year alone are:
􀂾 Teachers and Schools: Pennsylvania will lose approximately $26.4 million in funding for primary
and secondary education, putting around 360 teacher and aide jobs at risk. In addition about 29,000
fewer students would be served and approximately 90 fewer schools would receive funding.
o Education for Children with Disabilities: In addition, Pennsylvania will lose approximately
$21.4 million in funds for about 260 teachers, aides, and staff who help children with
disabilities.
􀂾 Work-Study Jobs: Around 3,160 fewer low income students in Pennsylvania would receive aid to
help them finance the costs of college and around 2,290 fewer students will get work-study jobs
that help them pay for college.
􀂾 Head Start: Head Start and Early Head Start services would be eliminated for approximately
2,300 children in Pennsylvania, reducing access to critical early education.

2. Senator Toomey is not good for Pennsylvania.

He's right up there (or down there) with Tom Corbett. They just want to please their corporate masters.

Toomey trying to secure defense money for Tobyhanna

U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Zionsville, has offered an amendment today to a bill to fund the government after March 27 that would increase Defense Department operations and maintenance funding by redirecting monies from the Pentagon biofuels program.


He's a fucking dick.
