SB 76 Fails To Ease Tax Burden — Lisa Esler, who is one of our favorite people and is a Penn Delco school director, had a 14-minute interview, today, Nov. 30, with Gunther Rewind concerning SB 76. The proposed legislation would prohibit homes from being taxed to fund schools.
Lisa notes that this reform does not solve the tax burden issue and that state legislature is not interested in taking the simple, commonsense steps necessary to do so.
She says the prevailing wage mandate increases construction and maintenance projects between 10 and 30 percent and should be simple to repeal with an honest government. She notes unnecessary state mandates such as paid teacher sabbaticals. She points out the crushing $70 billion-and-rising pension shortfall. She mentioned how the right to strike by teachers inevitably means tax increases.
And while nobody should be taxed from their home, Lisa is 100 percent correct that Harrisburg is not serious about fixing things.
