Property Tax Relief For Low-Income Seniors
I need your help right now! This is what we’ve been waiting for! Here’s our opportunity to create change in the lives of hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvanians.
In what’s being called a “dramatic turn,” the state House just last night voted 159-36 to eliminate school property taxes for low income seniors.
Remember, the House was supposed to discuss raising sales and income tax. House members dropped that idea and finally followed the will of the people!
Folks – this is a big deal! But here’s the catch: It needs another favorable vote before it moves to the Senate.
This is what we want: TAX CUTS, not TAX INCREASES!
We all need to call our state representatives TODAY! Call ten times if necessary! Tell them you support the tax cut plan.
If you don’t know who your state rep is, ask someone! Look in the phone book! But do it!
Folks, you know our elected leaders respond to phone calls. They respond to pressure. Please take five minutes out of your day and call or e-mail them. Beg them to follow through!
Please do me a favor and forward this-email to ten of your friends. Then listen to The Inside Story with Marty Griffin 9 am-noon on NewsRadio 1020 KDKA. Let’s make our leaders listen!
We can make a difference and we can create change. We MUST do it together.
Remember one voice is a whisper, but our voice is a roar!
Thanks again …..
