Tom Corbett's 'Toy Story'

The Corbett ad builds on its faulty premise about taxes by claiming “higher taxes led to 152,000 PA workers losing their jobs.” As we’ve already said, Wolf did not have the authority to raise taxes. And, as we’ll get to shortly, the 152,000 figure is inflated.
But more important, the campaign pins all the job losses on higher taxes and ignores a deep recession that started in December 2007 and ended in June 2009 — encompassing most of Wolf’s time in Harrisburg.
