Summer Brings No Break For Simmering Political Debate

By Special Contributor Larry Kane

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The summer season is here, but there is no break from simmering political debate.

The big issue is education funding, or lack thereof.

Former Pennsylvania democratic executive director Kevin Washo sees a need by the Corbett administration to find more dollars.

“We need more revenue, there’s no doubt about it. We have to find something. Every entity across the State is hurting,” says Washo.

“The truth is there’s not more revenue to be had. The reason we are in this situation, whether it be with the schools, or the reason we are in this situation, whether it be with the pension funds, is because we keep kicking the can down the road,” says nonprofit executive and Republican activist Farah Jimenez.

The two partisans join Montgomery County Democratic chair Marcel Groen and Republican Soroko in a debate over Benghazi, eavesdropping and the IRS scandal Sunday night on VOR on TCN.
