    This week’s political roundup looks at the similarities and differences between the Republican governors in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, Tom Corbett and Chris Christie. Both are slashing budgets, especially targeting public-employee unions and education, which received spending increases under their respective Democratic predecessors. On today’s Radio Times, guest host TRACEY MATISAK talks to a pair of informed, opinionated columnists about the combative Christie and the quiet Corbett: TOM MORAN, editorial page editor of the Newark Star-Ledger; and JOHN BAER, Harrisburg political columnist for the Philadelphia Daily News.
