Madonna: Corbett Has Chance Of Selling State Stores
“In the past the argument was never that we’re going to deal with a structural deficit and get us out of the state’s fiscal problems, so I think they have a better than average chance of getting the liquor stores sold. Now, it’s going to be a Herculean task. It’s no sure thing. I’m not saying it will happen. I said better than average.”
Doctor Madonna says the structural deficit is about $5 billion, and selling the liquor stores may be one way Corbett can close the deficit while keeping his pledge not to raise taxes. He appeared Thursday on the WNPV talk program Comment Please by Univest.
