Guy can’t find an issue that he is on the right side of to talk about this year. That is because his view of government is deeply rooted in the failed policies of George Bush, Dick Cheney & Rick Santorum.
So, he has now decided to present faulty and misleading information to voters in order to find something to talk about.
If you tune in to the Counter Point show on your local access channel this week you can hear Guy say in an interview that Pennsylvania is between 46th amd 49th in job creation in the country. But as Guy continues to do over and over again, he is not telling you the truth.
Despite his need to frighten and mislead you, the truth about job creation is that Pennsylvania is currently ranked 15th in the country. Governor Rendell has been solving our state’s problems:
The Governor’s Action Team (GAT) has been hard at work ensuring that companies have the resources to expand their businesses here — creating or retaining jobs for Pennsylvanians. During the Rendell Administration, GAT performance was the highest it has ever been since GAT began collecting statistics in FY97/98. Compared to the previous administration (1998-2002), the number of GAT projects completed successfully in the Rendell Administration (2003 – 2007) has increased by 25 percent.
And Governor Rendell’s economic stimulus plan works. In December 2006, the number of employed Pennsylvanians reached an all-time high of 5,779,200-153,900 more than when Governor Rendell took office in 2003. In the last four years, Pennsylvania has jumped from 41st in the nation for job growth to 15th! Additionally, in 2005 the statewide unemployment rate dropped below 5 percent for the first time since 2001 and have continued to be below the national average.
So, it turns out Guy is lying to you, again. And his scare tactics aren’t needed either.
What is needed is to send more good Democrats like Paul Drucker to Harrisburg to work with Governor Rendell to get the state of Pennsylvania to number one!
What Kind of Guy has to mislead people about jobs in Pennsylvania so he can find something to talk about?
The Wrong Guy.
