Recap
Daily Bits 1&2


 Dear Friends:


 On December 29,2015 Governor Wolf of Pennsylvania signed the state budget, a balanced 30.3 billion 12 months spending plan sent to him via a bipartisan senate vote. This budget increased spending by more than $1 Billion over the previous fiscal year’s budget fully funding the state’s agriculture program and making historical increases in funding for pre K-12 schools by $405 million. So while the state now has a 2015-16 budget in place, Wolf used the authority of the governor’s office to make $6.3 million in cuts to the budget--also called line item vetoes and completely eliminated many important programs. including $3 Billion for Ki2 education and nearly every agriculture program.

 Check out your Rep: Stanley Saylor 94th District York, PA winter newsletter 2015-16 Budget season is once again upon us.

On February 9th legislators listened to Wolf’s second budget address of his four year term and many of us are very disappointed in the governor’s plan for the 2016-17 budget. Wolf has doubled down on his demands for more money from hard working tax payers calling for nearly $3 billion in tax hikes to pay for $3 billion in new spending with none of that money going for property tax relief. Wolf is demanding 15 new taxes or increase in existing taxes. Specifically a hike in the personal income tax from 3.07 to 3.4 % for 2016-17 and make it retroactive to January 1st of this year. he also called for a massive expansion of sales tax which will include basic cable and satellite and television bills,movie theater ticket purchases, digital downloads of itunes and e books, as well as to increase cigarette tax to $1 more a pack. 

The television tax alone would add $12 a month to the average cable user. Amazingly, Wolf stood in the House Chamber and actually threatened Pennsylvania with higher property taxes if his demand for $3 billion in new taxes and spending is not met. (unquote Representative Stan Saylor.)

 Comments by Pearl: 

 I am a widow living on social security which was forced from my pay check from factory working many years every week before I got a dime for my family. My husband also worked in the factory and paid in for many years.

 We finally made our own maintenance business and still paid tax till we barely broke even annually. We had both paid in for 50 plus years. Yet when he died it took 5 months to get my social security started. 

Thanks to my Representative it did happen. We managed to own an acre of land. I totally feel the Social Security is my money and the Land belongs to me.

Yet yesterday from my small Social Security check I had to pay $303.50 for the first quarter school tax in order to keep my little acre of land. 

Now I know I have the right to complain when I hear about Wolf canceling the education fund he bragged about increasing.
