No clear path for Corbett

(Continued)

The latest budget increases spending by $500 million, includes tax credits for businesses and even some spending increases for the bruised school districts.

The governor is also touting his transportation plan, which could put $2.5 billion annually into infrastructure, including the long-awaited Susquehanna Valley Thruway project. It relies on increased funds from lifting the wholesale gas tax, a price increase which inevitably will fall into the laps of drivers across the state.

Based on this quick scan of the political horizon, it is hard to see a clear path from where he is to another term for governor. It might already be too little, too late for Corbett to save his reelection.
