Pennsylvania Project: General Assembly Costs Taxpayers $300M

PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — The Pennsylvania Project details the $300 million annual cost to taxpayers to fund the General Assembly. Yet, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett has not called for any significant tax cuts but still plans to cut education funding in half and refuses to tax Marcellus Shale drillers. Today on the KDKA Afternoon News, KDKA Radio’s Rose and Paul spoke with Eric Epstein, an advocate for General Assembly reform and co-founder of Rock the Capital, about this project.

    I think the Legislature in PA needs cut by 50% and Their pensions shouldn’t be paid to anyone who hasn’t served for 10 years. They also should have to pay part of their health care!

    1. Cut says:

      Cut them by 66% and no pension

  2. Zoeyzotron says:

    why should they get a Pension, no one (very few) outside of government do. they can have a 401k like the rest of us.
