Roae Opposes New Taxes and Spending Plan
10/8/2009
Rep. Brad Roae (R-Crawford) issued the following statement on the passage of an increased tax and spending plan by the House.
 
“I voted no on the tax increases because the people and businesses in my district cannot afford them in the middle of a recession. My constituents do not want nor can they afford to have the government take more of their money.
 
“I voted no on the budget because it spends almost $28 billion, but tax revenue will only be about $25.5 billion this year. The budget spends 9 percent more than our expected tax revenue. The budget is $7 billion larger than the budget seven years ago. 
 
“This spending level will cause huge problems in 2010 and catastrophic problems two years from now because the federal stimulus money being used and the money we are draining from other accounts will not be an option in 2011. We should not spend more than we are collecting in taxes.    
 
“Two months ago Governor Ed Rendell vetoed a budget I supported that spent 96 percent as much as last year’s budget.”
