Roae Calls Budget Deal Outrageous, Reckless and Irresponsible
9/11/2009
As details emerge concerning a $27.945 billion state budget deal, Rep. Brad Roae (R-Crawford) issued the following statement:
 
“The tentative budget agreement is outrageous, reckless, and irresponsible.
 
“We just ended the prior fiscal year with a $3.2 billion deficit, and this new budget will only cut one-tenth of the deficit. The spending level will be more than double the inflation rate increase for the past seven years. 
 
“The retroactive tax increase on business owners (delaying the phase-out of the Capital Stock and Franchise Tax) will lead to job losses. The cigarette tax increase will disproportionately hit lower-income people and the new tax on small games of chance will make it more difficult for charities to raise money.    
 
“The Rendell administration started with a $20.7 billion budget in 2003 and will now have a $27.9 billion budget.   A $1 billion increase a year for seven years in a row is ridiculous.”
