Default Fast Eddie refuses to pay PA National Guard. Pathetic, isn't it?

I hadn't thought of this before I saw it in the paper, but the PA National Guard are state employees and aren't receiving their paycheck, despite putting their lives on the line. How sad is that?

The Governor has a budget. Maybe the legislature should act on it.

No, I'm not from Philly. Typical Pennsyltucky response to anybody who doesn't believe Rendell is satan. How about addressing my point instead of attacking?

...Rendell needs to leave. I thought Ridge was bad- but now I think we have to return to rational governance.

It's unfair to blame Rendell without blaming the legislature as well. Both sides are acting like toddlers throwing a tantrum. I know it's easy (and apparently popular) in this state to just point fingers at the governor, but there's a bigger picture to this (and every) issue.

Also, and I don't want to start any wars or anything by saying this, but a lot of state Republicans point their finger at the governor and blame him entirely for the state's issues. These people objected to Democrats doing the same thing to George Bush. Let's be fair. The government has multiple branches -- co-equal and, usually, co-responsible.

No it is not unfair to Blame Rendell... As he is the one that always wants to raise taxes... The Governemnt, Federal and State needs to cut their Budgets by a min of 25% and lower the Taxes on the Middle Class working people... Stop giving to people that are to Lazy to help themselves...

There is no such thing as a Republican in Pennsylvania. It is either hard Socialism or light Socialism. Obvioulsy Rendell is on the hard end. The state needs a true Republican Liberterian who will shut down the state stores and create a legitimate free market! Rendell is a disgrace!

Um, if I were to think of a state that had any semblance of socialism in its operations, I would think California. Pennsylvania is centrist at best.
