Gov. Tom Corbett’s generous smile on meeting the pope — the pope whose mission is to alleviate the suffering of the poor — belies, in that smile, the spite the governor exhibits in declining the federal grants to aid the poverty-stricken in our commonwealth. During this Holy Week, our governor and legislators should repent their stingy ways to “the least of the brethren” and realize that they are impoverishing all the citizens of the commonwealth by their fiscal irresponsibility.
