The billboards are great! This is an outrage. To me, this is the same as any group of employees getting into their company's payroll records and just giving themselves a raise and then seeing if their employers' 'catch' the added costs. They did this in the middle of the night, with the support of the judicial branch (nice raises for all of the judges too) and all under the blessing of the ever backpeddling Fast Eddie Rendell. I hope the big story is that every incumbent, for the next several years, gets voted out of the state house and senate. How about these guys having to pay for their vehicles, contribute to the medical coverage, and be at the mercy of their employers for merit raises. Welcome to the real world!
The Bob Mellow billboard should somehow include his response to the anger of taxpayers over the increase: "Get a life".
