    Corman: DC Dems' BBB Vote Will Get Republicans Elected in PA

    Corman: DC Dems' BBB Vote Will Get Republicans Elected in PA

    On the latest episode of the Delaware Valley Journal podcast, Republican gubernatorial candidate Sen. Pro Tempore Jake Corman (R-Centre) called the Democrats’ passage of the $1.75 trillion social spending “Build Back Better” bill “tone deaf” and a boon for the Pennsylvania GOP.
    “I think that the Democrats in D.C. are tone deaf,” Corman told DVJournal New Editor Linda Stein. “They looked at the results of Virginia and said, ‘Well, we’re just not doing enough. That’s why, we lost in Virginia,’ and, and nothing (is) further from the truth, is what happened to Virginia? What happened…in New Jersey? It wasn’t that they weren’t progressive enough. It’s that they were too far progressive.”
