Greg Vitali is furious
with Gov. Corbett for refusing to tax the gas drilling industry more. And where is Delaware County's slice of the pie? How dare those rubes in the Alabama part of the state get to keep all the bulk of the proceeds from the gas found under their land. Not to mention the stockholders of the gas companies that are profiting so unfairly from Pennsylvania's inability to tax their profits at a "fair" rate.
Meanwhile, jobs are flooding into the region. Can't have that. How about a DOE grant to start a solar panel company at the soon to be vacant ConocoPhillips plant in Trainer? So what if it fails. At least our hearts would be in the right place.
