Imagine this: an elected official in Pennsylvania who says that budget cuts are not only wrong but completely unnecessary.

Brian Sims is a member of the House of Representatives who knows that Governor Corbett’s $1 billion cut to public education was wrong.

In this post, he explains that the state could raise the needed funds in other ways, for example, by requiring a fair tax on those now exploiting the state’s natural resources (e.g., those who are fracking and making huge profits while paying the state only pennies).

Kudos to Rep. Sims for constructive thinking that truly puts students first.
