Government needs to learn to live within its means, just like individual taxpayers must do during tough economic times.
Our state budget process must include accountability measures and results from the entities that continue to ask for more tax dollars. The budget process must prioritize the essential expenditures of government, thereby separating the needs of government from the wants of special interests.
According to Americans for Tax Reform (ATR), Pennsylvania taxpayers had to work
in 2012 to pay off their
federal, state and local taxes
In March 2015, the House State Government Committee advanced the Taxpayer Protection Act which would Constitutionally limit the future growth of state government spending using a rate of either a change in the Consumer Price Index or a change of population during the previous fiscal year.

Despite very different opinions on how to fix the budget, Pennsylvania legislators and the governor have agreed on something: there is a $1.2 billion budget shortfall. In the words of Senate Appropriations Committee Chair Pat Browne, “That’s progress. We know where we’re starting from.” However, the two sides are still very far from reaching a final budget agreement. Governor Wolf recently vetoed the Republican controlled legislature’s budget and negotiations between Republican legislators and the administration have stalled.
House poised to vote on property tax reform on Wednesday
