There are a few other posts I've found that address my question but none of them solve my problem so I'm creating this post.
I'm trying to install rpi.gpio for my Raspberry Pi B+. I installed python3-pip, but every time I try to call it from the command line with pip3 I get "command not found". I uninstalled it with:
sudo apt-get remove python3-pip
sudo apt-get install python3-pip

Back to the root problem.
In Raspian wheezy, pip is managed with
pip-3.2, you can easily create a
pip3 alias or a symlink to it to avoid typing
pip-3.2 every time.
pip-3.2 install rpi.gpio
