Corbett College-Cut Critics Milk The Cash Cow

Gov. Corbett's plan to cut $625 million in funds to collegiate bureaucrats and send some of the money directly to students as scholarships has sure caused some shrieks and howls.

Among the howlers whose cash cow is being gored are:

Penn State University President Graham Spanier whose salary is $620,000 not including benefits;

Pitt Chancellor Mark Nordenberg, whose salary is $486,500 not including benefits and who just received a sweet $26,500 raise;

Temple President Ann Weaver Hart whose salary is $527,403 not including benefits;

Cheyney University President Michelle Howard-Vital, who got but a mere $193,800 not including benefits albeit that was in 2008 and she's got a few raises since.

Oh, the humanity.

Among the defenders of the fat-cat educrats is Springfield's own State Rep. Bill Adolph (R-165) who as House Appropriations Chairman earns about $90,000 per year and is in line for a $64,000 pension upon retirement.

    Boo Hoo - Why does Corbett want to hurt the "kids"! This cut amounts to about 4% of Penn State's budget. Many businesses were hit much harder and coped by cutting costs. PSU et al need to do the same.
