Gov. Wolf wants to tax funerals

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.

  1. Pigs eat corn, money pigs eat money!
    We all know that.
    Hey, Gov., not enough in your pig trough yet? Maybe, let’s say we tax the decomposition rate of human tissue in the coffin over the years or better yet, a quick ‘spike’ tax for those cremated!
    Mmmmm money, money, money … Yum-yum.

  2. I’ll say it again–those who voted for the Keystone Obama as a vote against Corbett, especially because of Corbett’s role in the Sandusky scandal, are just as foolish as everyone who voted for Barack just because he’s black (well, half-black).

  3. This question just occurred to me–much was made of the fact that the Keystone Obama is a businessman. How successful was he, at running a business?

    1. Wolf took over his family business “The Wolf Organization” which makes kitchen cabinets and apparently ran it quite well. He sold it in 2006, and while we can’t find what the Governor’s net worth is, Wiki notes that he was willing to spend $10 million of his own money to fund his campaign.


  4. Thanks for the additional info, Bill. I knew it was a cabinetry business of some kind, but hadn’t looked up any details.

    It does seem to me that much was made of the fact that he is a businessman, as if to lure in independents or anyone who might believe that someone who worked in the private sector would be a good candidate for our economy. But I think Keystone Obama is a good example to show that business sense and worldview don’t necessarily coincide.
