'Rendell and his band of merry liberals'

I love this letter published in the Reading Eagle about Gov. Ed Rendell's misguided priorities.

The majority of Pennsylvania residents want to see property taxes eliminated and the only thing Rendell and the Legislature have been able to accomplish so far this year is to ban smoking in most public places.
Other issues more important


Gov. Ed Rendell and his band of merry liberals could better serve their constituents by eliminating property taxes than exerting their will against smokers ("Legislator succeeds with smoking ban after repeated tries," Reading Eagle, June 14).

It’s akin to fiddling while Rome burns.

Surely there are more important issues, such as property-tax relief, that should occupy the time of the legislators.
