Discriminating School Taxes Must End–support HB/SB 76

Share

by Rich Shuker

Homeownership has fallen to a 48 year low, the lowest it’s been since 1967. 1967 is an interesting date due to the fact that two years earlier school districts in the state of Pennsylvania were not allowed to directly tax the people. The Constitution says the House of Representatives is supposed to provide the funding for education

Because of the taxing authority by the school districts the school tax has become a regressive and discriminatory tax, targeting the low, middle income class and the retirees.

Since 2011 school taxes have gone up 116%, despite the casino tax scam that was to provide tax relief money, but the casinos made out better than the homeowners. Maybe that’s why Gov. Rendell stated,

State Senator Scott Wagner’s Report

Attempt to Override Veto of Emergency Funding Comes Up Short

Senator Wagner took to the Senate floor after a failed attempt to override the Governor’s veto of emergency funding to schools and service providers. He brought to light the fact that the Governor has hired a State Meteorologist in the midst of the budget impasse.

As we all know, schools and community service providers are struggling without their state funding. On Wednesday, Senate Republicans attempted to override Governor Wolf’s veto of an emergency budget passed last month by the General Assembly. Unfortunately, the attempt fell short of garnering the necessary votes.

The override required a two-thirds majority, or 33 votes. While all 30 Republican Senators voted for the measure,

Taxpayers paid $300,000 for Pa. Turnpike corruption scandal legal fees

Share

Brad Bumsted at the Trib Live

“Only in Pennsylvania can you mug the taxpayers and charge them legal fees,” said Eric Epstein, co-founder of Rock the Capital, a government reform group.

In many ways it was a “double crime,” Epstein said. Some defendants got to keep state pensions by pleading to lesser charges of conflict of interest while taxpayers were “on the hook for their legal fees,” he said.

The state paid legal fees for three defendants until they were charged with crimes, said turnpike spokesman Carl DeFebo Jr.

“Please Don’t Steal, Harrisburg Hates Competition”

by Rich Shuker

Pennsylvania’s Budget Hearings have begun, as has the debating, until agreed upon. The question is, will it be a budget that benefits the taxpayers or a budget inclusive of more abusive spending, waste and fraud?

According to the Independent Fiscal Office reports, Governor Wolf’s budget proposal will increase taxes on all of Pennsylvania’s residents. These tax increases include taxing the lowest income group in the State. The Governor wants additional revenues of $4.6 billion; he wants to replace the existing impact fee paid by drillers, on a per well basis, with a severance tax that would be based on the value of the gas extracted. The IFO report states that these costs would be passed, directly, onto

News Release from the Commonwealth Foundation

Public Resources Used for Campaign Politics

October 27, 2015, HARRISBURG, Pa.—Government union leaders are free to back their preferred judges for spots on the state Supreme Court—but should they use public resources to help them?

Ahead of elections next week, government unions have pumped more than $280,000 into the state Supreme Court race, according to the latest state campaign finance reports. That includes money collected from the paychecks of state workers and school teachers—using government payroll systems—then given to candidates.

That’s ironic, given a Supreme Court judge was criminally convicted for mixing public resources and politics just two years ago.

“Have we already forgotten former

Pennsylvania, your state Legislature is out of money

Share

By Jan Murphy | jmurphy@pennlive.com

The now 119-day state budget impasse has gone on so long that all four

legislative caucuses have exhausted their oft-criticized legislative reserves.

With no more financial cushion, the House and Senate Republican and Democratic caucuses have had to identify an alternative funding source to keep the legislative branch open for business for the duration of the impasse.

On Friday, the Senate Republican and Democratic caucuses joined their House Republican colleagues in what some suggest might be an unprecedented move of borrowing money to cover payroll and other costs associated with their operation.

Republicans renew push for paycheck protection

Share

This story was updated Wednesday afternoon to reflect the final Senate vote on paycheck protection.

By Andrew Staub | PA Independent

State Sen. John Eichelberger believes the time has come for Pennsylvania to stop using its payroll system to collect political money for government unions, and plenty of his fellow lawmakers agree.

The state Senate on Wednesday passed Eichelberger’s paycheck protection legislation in a 26-23 vote, sending it to the state House for consideration.

Originally, the bill prohibited the state from collecting all dues, fees and political action committee money for all government unions, except for those representing public-safety employees. Republican state senators tweaked it Tuesday, approving an Eichelberger amendment that still bars the collection of political money but allows

Are you really free to raise your children? Think again.

Share

Normal people would think that parents have a say about how they raise their children. That would be a normal person’s thought, but not how the government thinks. Have you heard any horror stories about how public social service agents have taken custody of children totally against the will of the parents or guardians?

The “Kids for Cash” scandal is a worst case example of abuse by government “officials”.

Almost everywhere children go, school, church, scouts, etc.. they are exposed to some authority figure telling them to report any sexual, mental, or physical abuse that a parent, family member, or even stranger may be inflicting on them. Depending on the child’s age and mental maturity this could
