For Pennsylvania’s unthinkers who punched button for Tom Wolf last November, be told: Our new governor wants to tax funerals.
That’s right, he wants to expand the sales tax to previously exempt items including caskets, burial vaults, services provided by funeral homes and grave stones.
This would raise the cost of the average funeral, which is $6,500, by $429.
Wasn’t Gov. Corbett’s historic gas tax enough to solve our money problems? It would have been if the goal wasn’t to create a feudal system were we serfs are expected to support lifestyles of wealth and leisure for the lords and ladies in the political class.
Has there been any talk of cutting public spending? LOL.
How about a tax on public pensions? That’s a tax we can support.
