    and I say this as an EMPLOYEE of the PA Dept. of Public Welfare.

    "Lusitania" instead of "Titanic" because the imminent sinking of this ship was no accident...

    The last time the Republicans were this radical, they were working to elect former slaves to Congress. What a difference a century and a half makes!

      It never gets old for me when people directly involved in aspects of government I write about leave me comments, thanks for your input.

        counties and we're absolutely swamped. We have over 100 caseworkers and each of them has at least 2000 active cases going. There is NO TIME to return calls from clients, there is NO TIME to actually get everything done that needs to be done by deadline, we're dealing with archaic systems and outdated procedures that make things seriously slow...we don't have enough money, people, equipment or time and that's taken as proof that we don't and can't do any good.

        Corbett's an ass. I can't wait to vote against him next year. Unfortunately, it's not like the assembly is going to change much, even without Tommy Boy in office.
