Eichelberger, McGinnis should be ones sorry
I thought I had seen everything, and then I read the letter in the Mirror from two Pennsylvania legislators (Sen. John H. Eichelberger Jr. and Rep. John McGinnis) criticizing the Pennsylvania State Education Association for being greedy.
I admire their nerve.
These are the same people who get full-time pay for a part-time job.
In their letter, Eichelberger and McGinnis mentioned four acts that PSEA supported. What they conveniently neglected to mention was that all four acts benefited our legislators more than anyone else, and may I remind them that PSEA did not enact these acts, our Legislature did.
Should they not be the ones apologizing?
This reminds me of the time, at a public forum, Eichelberger criticized a state employee because he did not pay 5 percent of his salary for health care. At the same time and at the present, legislators paid and continue to pay only 1 percent of their health care expense that costs taxpayers more than $19,000 a year.
Our legislators (and their staff) have policies that include dental, vision, nursing home insurance and disability insurance. And they are going to tutor other people on being greedy?
We are the fifth most corrupt state in the union.
Are Eichelberger and McGinnis contemplating any actions to correct this situation, or do they just have time to write a letter criticizing others when they should be looking in a mirror?
