Call to Action–from the Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania

Call to Action

Although the General Assembly passed a budget before the statutory deadline, they have not decided how to pay for all of the spending. It is obviously irresponsible to decide how much to spend without knowing where the money is coming from, but that is how government typically operates.

House Republicans prefer a mixture of increasing the types of gambling legal under state law (and the associated revenue), higher taxes on tobacco products, back taxes from tax delinquents and increased sales of alcohol. Evidently, they were not able to figure out how to raise taxes on strippers, or that would probably be in the mix too.

House Democrats are skeptical of the Republicans revenue estimates, and probably with Continue reading…

Facebook Website Bio Latest News State Forms Photo Gallery Contact House Passes 2016-17 State Budget Plan This evening, I joined a bipartisan majority of my House colleagues in passing a 2016-17 state budget proposal that increases education spending without any new or increased broad-based taxes. The vote was 132-68.

While not my ideal budget, the legislation sets total state spending at $31.55 billion, which is $1.49 billion, or 4.8 percent, more than the current fiscal year due to mandated increases, such as additional funding for pensions, corrections and the state police.

I am especially pleased that we

Commentary: ‘Reform’ plan doesn’t fix Pa. pension crisis

Updated: June 30, 2016 — 3:01 AM EDT

By Richard C. Dreyfuss from Philly.com

Someone once quipped that a camel is a horse designed by committee. A perfect example of this metaphor is the “stacked-hybrid” public pension plan passed by the Pennsylvania House in mid-June. Rather than fixing our broken state pension system, this plan keeps all the problems that led to billions in debt and continues to avoid paying for the promises made to public employees.

Pennsylvania taxpayers already face an unsustainable $63.2 billion pension debt – 730 percent more than just 10 years ago. This threatens future plan solvency and transfers costs to future generations. Those seeking to live, work, or invest in our state will not be pleased

Socialism Attacks the Family, Just as Its Inventors Intended

Last year, “socialism” was the most looked-up word at Merriam-Webster.com. That is hardly a surprise. It clearly reflects growing interest, especially with the remarkable surge of lifetime socialist Bernie Sanders, who has won a pile of states in pursuing the Democratic Party presidential nomination. He will eventually have earned over 10 million votes nationwide. Many of those voters have only a hazy idea what socialism entails, but most surely know that it gives the government more control over the so-called “means of production” as well as your wallet and your property, but not as much as outright Communists crave.

American interest in socialism was growing well before
