Gov. Tom Corbett's proposed privatization of state liquor stores is another example of governance by ideology, not reality.
Liquor sales generate $500 million worth of yearly state revenue. But, at a time when the state budget is already thin on revenue, this governor seeks to divest an important asset and set the stage for increased school taxes.
In an attempt to sell his plan, Corbett proposes to make education the beneficiary of proceeds from the sale of liquor stores.
