Natural gas is great for America in so many ways.
One of the things that people don't realize is that that natural beauty, those recreational forests, they have an economic development impact for the state as well.
I am a free spirit. I tell the truth, and I like to mix it up.
I think politics today is all about false choices: You can have a robust energy economy and a challenged environment, or a great environment and no economy. That's a false choice. You can do both.
Tourism is our second biggest industry in terms of the people it employs.
There are a tremendous amount of environmental issues that are on the table.
The Medicaid system currently steers people toward nursing home care. Far more people can be covered in community-based care programs for significantly less.

Growing Greener doesn't produce money for farmland preservation or open space preservation.
I think if we're going to have to landfill trash, and I think we basically have to, we might as well get the upside for it and dedicate that upside to improving the environment in so many different ways.
And preserving our open spaces or having them there for recreational purposes is one of the things that contributes to the high level of quality of life that we offer in Pennsylvania, and that also translates into economic benefits.

I'm interested in giving business an opportunity by improving the tax environment to invest and grow with Pennsylvania, to expand and put more money in capital investment and creating jobs.
Most people are motivated by the economy. And if you've lost your job, lost your mortgage, lost your 401(k), you're angry. And if your brother-in-law has lost one of those you're angry still. And when you're angry you take it out on people who are in office. Which is natural.
