The ‘Generational Theft ‘ pension bill that is expected to allow the sextupling of the annual pension burden on the Pennsylvania taxpayer to $5.8 billion has crawled back from the dead like a zombie stalking a Pittsburgh shopping mall.
Lame duck Speaker Keith McCall announced, today, that he is calling the State House back in session on Nov. 15 when it is expected to approve the changes made by the state Senate to HB 2497, the official name for the theft bill. The House passed the bill 192-6 on June 16.
McCall had announced on Friday that the House would not be returning to the anger and fear of The Pennsylvania State Education Association and Gov. Ed Rendell both of which implored the Democrat-controlled House to change its mind.
Which the walking dead Democrats did to nobody’s surprise.
The House passes to GOP control in January.
Pennsylvanians don’t get your hopes too high.
