Taxes

The D Team thinks YOUR money is THEIR money.

When it comes to your money, wait a minute, the D Team thinks YOUR money is THEIR money.

The D Team supports creating a new energy tax on Pennsylvania’s job-creating energy industry that will tax it out of existence. D Team members have also opposed incentives for job creators, support job-killing environmental policies and recently announced plans to tax the investments of hard-working Pennsylvania families.

While Governor Tom Corbett believes that families should keep their hard-earned money, the D Team is constantly on the lookout for ways to put your money into the government’s pocket.

The D Team supports up to a full moratorium on this energy development.

This liberal approach will costs Pennsylvanians jobs, drive up energy costs for our families, and result in communities losing millions of dollars in local revenue.

Known As The “Centerpiece” Of ObamaCare – The Unpopular Individual Mandate Will Be Borne By The Middle-Class

ObamaCare’s Individual Mandate Will Fine Americans “$95 Or 1 Percent Of The Person’s Income” While Growing “Significantly Larger” In The Following Years. “The fines for individuals are relatively small this year — $95 or 1 percent of the person’s income, whichever is greater — but they’ll still have strong symbolic importance. They’ll grow significantly larger in 2016.” (Brett Norman and David Nather, “Obama Administration Delays Part Of Employer Mandate Again,” Politico, 2/10/14) Continue reading
