Eagles game-day flyover to target Corbett’s Medicaid policy

    Area activists are taking their fight to the football field today as the Philadelphia Eagles take on rival Dallas Cowboys.

    Progressive activist organization, Keystone Progress, has hired a plane to pull a banner that will say, “Gov. Corbett loves Cowboys – hates PA families.”

    “The banner is a fun way to draw attention to Corbett’s Medicaid scheme,” said Keystone Progress Executive Director Michael Morrill. “We’re not sure if Corbett really loves the Cowboys, but we know that Corbett’s Medicaid plan is really back-door privatization and is another giveaway to corporations.”

    Representatives from Keystone Progress will also be handing out mock trading cards outside the stadium, depicting Gov. Corbett as the Cowboy’s “quarterback for corporate privateers.”
