Senator Corman: Wolf’s Latest Tax Scheme Harms Employers; Budget Plan is Irresponsible and Unsustainable

(HARRISBURG) – Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman (R-34) offered his initial reaction on Gov. Tom Wolf’s proposed tax hikes:

“Governor Wolf and his Democrat allies are once again proving they have forgotten about Main Street and every middle-class family in the Commonwealth.  The governor’s latest tax scheme would be a fatal blow for many employers across Pennsylvania.  These are the same small businesses the governor forced to remain shuttered during the pandemic; all the while allowing their competitors and big box stores to remain open. The budget he is presenting is completely unsustainable, totally irresponsible and absolutely crippling to the state’s economy.  Now is not the time to ask Pennsylvanians to send more of their hard-earned dollars to Harrisburg.”
