Levitsky, who lives in the Art Museum area and once worked as a City Council aide, didn't want to discuss her health in detail but said adultBasic had paid for several procedures over the years. She said she has no coverage for now and isn't sure what she'll do between now and 2014, when federal health care is slated to expand. She's received insurance-price quotes between $200 and $500 a month.
"I think the money should be appropriately funded toward that need - toward the basics in life," she said. "The politicians, they don't care. They're all set in life. They don't care about the little people. That's the bottom line."
No one gave more to Corbett for his 2010 campaign than natural-gas drilling billionaire Terry Pegula and his wife, Kim, who took out their checkbooks several times to give the GOP candidate $305,000.
And arguably no one was a bigger winner yesterday in Corbett's spending plan than Pegula - who reportedly made $3 billion last year when he sold his Pennsylvania-based East Resources to Royal Dutch Shell - and his friends in the business of drilling deep under the Marcellus Shale.
Not only did Corbett passionately defend his decision not to tax gas drilling - even though that's done in all other 14 of the top 15 gas-producing states - but he pledged to make Pennsylvania "the Texas of the natural-gas boom."
Pegula didn't return a phone call Monday to his office near Boca Raton, Fla.
So it wasn't clear if he was down in Boca at his $4.75 million golf-club home yesterday - or perhaps in upstate New York, where he spent $175 million just last month to buy the Buffalo Sabres hockey team.
