Corbett Memo Takes On Fellow Republicans

January 2, 2012
"Faced tens of thousands of protesters camping out at the state Capitol for Weeks," says one bullet point in Walker's section. The memo lists legislative shortcomings in South Carolina and Michigan and attacks LePage for proposing a state pension contribution increase, then exempting "his own pension." Corbett's deputy chief of staff, Luke Bernstein, begins with a list of Corbett's positive accomplishments in the areas of jobs, the budget, public safety, government reform and education. It also includes a section detailing how Corbett's first year stacked up against his predecessors. Republicans Tom Ridge and Dick Thornburgh are not spared in the section which also targets Democrats Bob Casey and Ed Rendell. According to the latest Quinnipiac poll taken in late November and early December, Corbett's approval rating stood at 47 percent, with 34 percent disapproving. Compared to some of the other Republican governor's Bernstein's memo mentions (Kasich and Scott were both under 40 percent in recent Quinnipiac polls in their states), that's not bad. That said, the memo could make things a little awkward for Corbett at the next RGA meeting. Check out the complete memo here.
