HARRISBURG – After the governor today in Harrisburg officially unveiled his annual spending plan that calls for a 46% increase in the state income tax paid by small employers and working Pennsylvanians, state Rep. Brad Roae (R-Crawford/Erie) issued the following statement:

“Percentage-based taxes, like the state income tax, generate more revenue as our economy grows, new businesses open and new jobs are created. There’s no need to raise the state income tax rate when we can increase revenue by expanding our economy. The problem with the governor’s proposal is that he wants to spend money faster than Pennsylvanians can earn it.”
