Metzgar Rejects $1 Billion Tax Increase
10/2/2009
Rep. Carl Walker Metzgar (R-Somerset/Bedford) today issued the following statement in response to the passage of House Bill 1531 which calls for $1 billion in tax increases as a part of the Pennsylvania budget process.
 
“The debate over this tax code bill was preposterous to start with as it is based on the premise that Pennsylvania taxpayers, businesses and consumers should have to give up more money to a state government that already spends way too much. There is a major recession continuing here and around the nation, and to suggest that penalizing hard-working people makes financial sense; simply shows how out of touch these politicians that supported the tax bill are.
 
“The House Democrats are taxing landowners that benefit from Marcellus Shale exploration with an extraction tax, who are raising the Capital Stock and Franchise Tax on small businesses by 53 percent, and they are further burdening the working Pennsylvanians with an across-the board tobacco product tax.
 
“The bottom line in all of this is simple. It is an attempt to hammer people with higher taxes rather than making government live within its means just like every family is trying to do in the 69th District. We cannot do this incredible harm to our citizens in a recession where we are all struggling to make ends meet, and therefore, I reject it categorically.”
