PA House Democrats Against Tax Hikes

Contrary to the Rendell administration’s claims that many Republicans will support a personal income tax increase, the opposite it likely true.  John Micek writes that there are maybe 20 Pennsylvania “Blue Dog” Democrats who are dead set against it.  But as he notes, will not say so publicly, because “the first rule of being a Blue Dog is not to talk about being a Blue Dog.”

John Baer also has an interesting article in the firmness of opposition against an income tax hike, including a comment by Rep. Mark Cohen furthering the belief that the budget will pass the Pennsylvania House easily (if it ever comes to a vote) without a tax hike.
