Wolf’s Agenda Steals from Taxpayers for Public Union Benefit

Share

By State Representative Daryl Metcalfe

The new governor, Tom Wolf, believes that he has a mandate to increase your taxes after defeating Tom Corbett last year! The old saying of, “Don’t tax you, don’t tax me, tax that man behind the tree,” does not apply to Wolf’s tax-and-spend scheme because he wants a $4.7 billion tax increase that will raise everyone’s taxes.

He proposes to increase your personal income tax by 21 percent and your sales tax by 10 percent, in addition to creating a new tax on natural gas production. His tax-and-spend increases include a new cradle-to-grave approach, taxing diapers, caskets and many other items and services that are not currently taxed. On the budget deadline of June

SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE, REALLY?

Share

 

Teachers and Staff from the Lebanon School District attended a workshop at the Lebanon Valley Mosque, according to stories by the Lebanon Daily News and Reading Eagle. According to those news reports the teachers and staff “learned about the practices of Islam”, “watched an afternoon Muslim prayer service and were treated to lunch of Moroccan cuisine.” Now this is not the first time for this in Lebanon County. There have been other reports of School District visits to area Mosques. All of these workshops and visits were conducted on THE TAXPAYER’S DIME! Justifying the visit (and taxpayer expense) was the Superintendent who claimed that the workshops were important due to a growing Muslim population! We have reports that Muslim Prayer Rooms have

Update: Wolf Vetoes Plan to Privatize Liquor Sales

Share

By State Rep. Justin Simmons

Last week, the governor vetoed legislation which would have gradually shut down the old state liquor store system and replace it with a more modern, privately owned system. House Bill 466 included a series of reforms for beer, liquor and wine sales across the Commonwealth. The bill would have allowed beer distributors to expand their businesses to sell liquor and wine and authorizes private wine wholesalers to sell products. The measure also eliminated a conflict of interest, allowing the Commonwealth to focus on enforcement.

 

Update: Wolf Says “No” to No-Tax Budget

Share

By State Rep. Justin Simmons

During the past month, my colleagues worked hard to put together a responsible, balanced budget with no tax hikes – a plan that raises our investment in education while meeting our needs. It funds the core functions of government and includes more than $400 million in increases for early childhood education, basic education and higher education.

Funding for Pennsylvania school districts reaches historic levels without tax increases. The budget also includes a combined $11 million for the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) and institutional assistance grants.

The spending plan also includes additional funding for people across Pennsylvania with intellectual disabilities, rape crisis centers, domestic violence agencies, along with agricultural, environmental protection, veterans and human services programs across

Wolf’s reckless spending proposals.House Bill 1192 now moves to the Senate for consideration, with the expectation it will arrive on the governor’s desk before the June 30 budget deadline. We are encouraging him to sign it into law.

Pennsylvania Governor’s Action Draws Strong House Rebuke

From Representative Justin Simmons web-page

Less than a week after Gov. Tom Wolf failed for the second time to carry out a lawfully imposed death sentence, the House approved a resolution condemning his actions. House Resolution 143 calls on the governor to reverse the moratorium on the death penalty and perform his constitutional duty to respect the court’s sentences. Wolf imposed the ban in February as he awaits the findings of a task force studying the issue.

East Penn School Board “Lets lower the taxes”. Hold on though, don’t get too excited

Share

Hold your surprise, it seems like all the school board members suddenly want to lower your taxes. This may appear to be a strange request, especially after they just voted 8-1 to increase your school taxes by 3.78%. So what gives? Well, it turns out that the Superintendent may have found some extra money laying around. That’s right, extra money, and almost $100,000 to boot, wow! What will they do with this windfall? Well, that’s the exact question the Superintendent posed at the school board meeting on 6/8/2015. The Superintendent was looking for the boards guidance, so he asked them and they responded with gusto. A vast majority said apply it to the tax increase we just approved. The only board member that voted against
