Job growth in PA third in nation due to spending

Cut programs and jobs when unemployment is falling?

Recent job growth in Pennsylvania is healthier than in most states

This article is a study based on job growth in Pennsylvania. The study shows that spending by former Governor Rendell made Pennsylvania third in the nation for job growth. The former governors spending plan includes $400M in infrastructure, $600M in promoting energy jobs, and $500M in economic development. This created 107,000 jobs due to investment. He did this without raising business taxes. Lower the tax rate, and close the loopholes. Why can't we logically cut spending and stop giving big business tax breaks?
