Which Republicans Just Set Up Vote for Tax Hiking Budget?

Share

 

Earlier this evening there was some procedural wrangling in the Pennsylvania House. The activity set up a vote tomorrow on a budget, which if passed, will set us up for a massive tax hike. Here is the list of Republicans who joined with the entire Democratic Caucus to move this irresponsible budget forward (full roll call here):

Is the Senate Negotiating in Good Faith?

Share

Click here to contact the legislature and let them know you can’t afford higher taxes.

It appears that House Majority LeaderRep. Dave Reed has finally accepted reality and abandoned his push for a tax hike. As we noted last week, the Senate is now pushing for a spending increase that blows through the rate of inflation plus population growth. Making matters worse, Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman (Centre County) quickly pushed through several massive code changes late last week to hob-knob in New York City over the weekend.

Corman wasted no time in trying to throw the House Republican caucus under the bus

With Details, Wolf Budget “Framework” Looks Even Worse

Share

 

 

by NATHAN BENEFIELD at the Commonwealth Foundation

Now that the Pennsylvania Senate has begun passing legislation, taxpayers can finally see what’s in Gov. Wolf’s “framework” for a new budget. Based on the passage of SB 1073 and SB 1082 today in the Senate, here are five things we know about the budget framework: 1. Excessive Spending Growth. The $30.788 billion budget represents spending growth of 5.4 percent over last year’s budget. Even including items shifted off budget last year, this amounts to an increase of $500 million more than inflation and population growth.

Repealing these two regulations could save you 31 cents per gallon of gas.

Share

Salim Furth / / Max Lies /From the The Daily Signal

The repeal of two costly federal restrictions would lower the price of gas by 31 cents a gallon and save a typical American family $247 per year.

One of the restrictions is the ethanol mandate. Officially known as the “Renewable Fuel Standard,” it requires that massive amounts of corn be processed into ethanol, which is then mixed into gasoline and sold to consumers. Ethanol is less efficient and more expensive, gouging Americans at the pump. Adding insult to injury, so much farmland has been devoted to growing corn for ethanol that it has increased the price of food as well.

Senate Budget Charts an Unsustainable Course with Budget

Share

From the Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania-CAP

On Monday, December 7th, the Pennsylvania Senate passed two significant pieces of legislation. The first was a budget that grew spending at 6 percent, well over the rate of inflation plus population growth. The fact that there is no way to pay for this spending increase without a tax hike is equally concerning. This budget made no attempt to “trim the fat”. Instead, the budget increased expenditures on some very questionable line items.

A Brief History of Wolf’s Tax Hikes

Share

by NATHAN BENEFIELD at the Commonwealth Foundation

Yesterday, the State House of Representatives announced they were moving off the latest Wolf tax hike proposal and onto a new plan that called for less spending and fewer new taxes. Moving away from broad-based tax hikes—for which there is little support—is the right move for Pennsylvania families.

Here’s some background.

Tax Hike Proposal #1

In his budget address, Gov. Tom Wolf proposed a massive $4.6 billion tax hike, with a net increase of about $1,400 per family of four. Every income group would have paid higher taxes under Wolf’s plan.

This proposal was never introduced in the

How Michigan’s Welfare Population Declined by 70% in 4 Years

Share

 

By Sara Jones /at The Daily Signal

Since Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder assumed office, the number of welfare recipients in the state has declined by a staggering 70 percent, according to a news report.

A total of 64,492 individuals received cash assistance from the state this past August, down from 227,490 in 2011. Snyder, a Republican, took office in January 2011 and was re-elected in November 2014.

Michigan Capitol Confidential, a news site, reported that the decline in welfare recipients could be due to new enforcement of limits on cash benefits. The state has begun enforcing a 48-month lifetime limit for its cash assistance program and a 60-month federal time limit.
