Surprising changes

Lower taxes, reduce government spending, and don’t trust Harrisburg to handle taxpayer money. These are three economic articles of faith for Pennsylvania Republicans.

However, the Governor’s new transportation bill raises taxes and fees, increases government spending by billions of dollars, and entrusts Harrisburg with handling this new revenue stream of taxpayer dollars.

And, wonder of wonders, Republicans around the state are touting how this significant increase in government spending will help the private sector.
