"Corbett vowed not to raise taxes, including motorist fees, during his campaign for the governorship, but during the Capitol news conference said simply that he did not agree that the transportation bill broke those promises."

Just another way this slippery snake is slamming the middle class! Don't bother complaining about it, he doesn't care and neither do our reps in the house. They will all keep getting their COLA raises.
