Bend over, Pennsylvanians. 35 cents more for a pack of smokes. Less in your take home pay. More money for the children that will never make a dime's worth of difference.

I feel so used!

I don't understand. I was just reading something on FR a couple of days ago that said that the PA GOP legislature blocked an income tax increase. The author was praising the GOP for playing hardball with the governor. What happened?

Did you have to post this? Can we cut Philly and Pitt out of the state now? They are liberal puss sores on an otherwise fine state. Without them we wouldn't have Emporer Rendell.

Oh and by the way we homeschool. Homeschoolers shouldn't have to pay for public schools that they don't use. I don't want a voucher just less taxes.

Republicans everywhere seem to be giving in to more taxes. When is someone going to try cutting sales, income, telephone, and all other taxes?

Time and time again they come back for an additional tax until they get the people to pass it. If a tax fails by 10% or more, then the officials will explain the people just did not understand the need for the tax.

But, once they pass a tax, even if it passes by one vote, they never come back and say we need to vote again, that it did not pass by enough votes, because the people did not understand that this tax will last forever and probably be wasted. It never happens.

"This [package] was negotiated over a long period of time," said Senate President Pro Tem Robert Jubelirer, R-Altoona. "It was important to get the job done. I think we have effected a reasonable compromise, a budget that is fiscally responsible."

Proving once again that bipartisanship is twice as bad as partisanship

"This is a terrific day," Rendell said after the all-nighter.

"The next budget will be much, much easier," he promised.

TERRIFIC! I have had many an all nighters at work and some on personal (hehe) time beleive me, you, I have never considered them terrific, the day after, when on the clock.

"The next budget will be much, much easier," he promised.

Ah huh, and the Titanic was unsinkable right? Well at least it was until it sunk anyway.
