Reese: Taxpayer Protest Sends Strong Message to State Government
6/8/2010

Irresponsible spending is the problem in Harrisburg 

Faced with numerous special interest groups demanding higher spending in state government, Rep. Mike Reese (R-Fayette/Westmoreland) said today that the annual Pennsylvania State Capitol Taxpayer’s Protest rally was appropriate, and sends a strong message. 

“It was an honor to stand with many individual taxpayers and group representatives to continue to send a message demanding fiscal responsibility from government,” said Reese. “Reckless spending and borrowing is the chief problem we face as a Commonwealth and as a nation, and our taxpayers are simply fed up. I have fought this battle along with many of my colleagues to get spending under control, and I am delighted that many others are joining in this effort.” 

The rally featured a host of speakers looking to state government to get the budget situation under control.  

“Our cause is simple, no new taxes, no new spending and no new borrowing,” said Reese. “As part of our current budget negotiations, there is a plan from the governor to increase state spending again, and to raise taxes in support of that spending, which is unconscionable. This plan must be defeated, and our taxpayers protected from yet another assault on their livelihoods.” 

The rally was held in the Capitol rotunda in Harrisburg.
