Rep. Causer Debunks Rendell's Scare Tactics

Debunking Rendell’s
State Budget Scare Tactics
In recent weeks, the Rendell administration has been predicting gloom and doom for Pennsylvanians of all ages if a fiscally responsible budget that reflects the state’s economic realities is adopted into law.

Rendell is working hard to build support for his plan to spend $29 billion in the next fiscal year, even though revenues are expected to reach just $25.5 billion at best. Pennsylvania cannot spend money it doesn’t have. We can’t print our own money like the federal government does.

Raising Taxes is “Easy?”
So what the governor isn’t telling you is how he plans to pay for his excessive spending. House Democrats have been a bit more forthcoming, stating publicly on more than one occasion that an increase in the state’s Personal Income Tax is the “easiest” way to deal with the state budget shortfall. House Republicans disagree.
Rendell’s “Tax You More” Bus Tour
To scare people into supporting higher taxes and spending, Rendell’s cabinet secretaries have been issuing releases to the media, claiming that a responsible budget proposal advanced by Senate Republicans would result in the closure of dozens of state parks and state veterans homes, and limit access to health care for both children and adults. Most recently, Education Secretary Gerald Zahorchak has been traveling on a bus across the state threatening seniors and other homeowners with higher property taxes if we don’t adopt the governor’s excessive education funding plan.
Living Within Our Means
Funding education, health care, parks and veterans services are priorities for us all, but in these tough economic times, we have to make do with what we have. If the current administration can’t provide core programs and services with the money we have, maybe it’s time for a change in management.

Pennsylvania families and businesses have to live within their means; government must do the same.

Spendell will use State Employees as Hostages again this year. Hopefully not for too long though. No Furloughs this year, just work with NO pay until the Budget is passed.

This should NOT be allowed to happen...if they want anyone to work for NO pay then they should start at the top, not the men and women that earn their money via manual labor.

This is a joke, if employers did this labor and industry would shut them down, and quick.

How long would the federal and state allow this to happen as far as weekly Federal tax deposits not being made from employers payrolls? And how long would the state allow employers to not make their state tax deposits on the 15th and the last day of the month? Not for very darn long you can bet on it!

Our State government should have to run this state like we do with our businesses, within their means or the pay cuts start at the top, not the worker bees!
