Governor Corbett faces hecklers?  Never….

Earlier today in the Lehigh Valley, a retired, or current, teacher asked Governor Corbett about pension reform and while being heckled, the Governor said that they’re going after “new teachers.”  In other words, Governor Corbett wants more well educated Pennsylvanians to leave Pennsylvania because of the shitty atmosphere he and his republican colleagues have created.

Oh and someone called out how Tom Corbett LOVES the Marcellus Shale.  This is just the beginning…

In the video, Gov. Corbett smiles as he calls on a male attendee for the final question of the conference. The man stands up and starts with “Gov. Corbett – We love our teachers.” Corbett responds “Absolutely,” and all heads turn as a woman to the left states loudly, “Clearly you don’t.”

The man goes on to say that Lehigh Valley residents don’t want Corbett “messing with their retirement pensions.” Loud applause covers the tail end of the man’s comments, making it difficult to discern if he even asked a question at all.

As Corbett attempts to explain that his pension reform would apply only to new teachers, not those already working, another female voice, possibly belonging to the same woman, yells “You love Marcellus Shale more,” and the male who originally accused Corbett of attacking teachers responds “What makes you think we don’t love our new upcoming teachers?”
