Pennsylvania needs elected leaders who will put people first and work together to build a strong economy that works for all of us. For too long we’ve seen working families struggle while corporations and wealthy special interests get the breaks.
Tax cuts for the rich do not create jobs or grow the economy – paying workers enough to be customers creates real growth. The middle class is paying their fair share; it’s time the rich do, too.
Extremists in Harrisburg put politics and special interests ahead of the people. They are trying to cut your pay, cancel your benefits, make it impossible to see a doctor when you’re sick and take away any chance you can afford to retire.
It’s time for a change.
PA House Democrats have a Plan for Pennsylvania to Put People First. We’re fighting for Good Jobs, Affordable Health Care, Quality Schools and A Fair Economy. By standing together we can change the direction of our state.
Working hard is at the core of what Pennsylvanians are about. Small-business owners, nurses, teachers – EVERYBODY – deserves leadership in Harrisburg that fights for THEM. While corporate profits and CEO perks are higher than ever, most workers' pay has actually gone down.
We want to grow our economy and create good jobs everywhere – jobs that pay real wages and offer real benefits and a chance to retire – so everyone can have a brighter future.
If you get sick, you should be able to see your doctor without going into debt – or bankruptcy. We can’t return to the days when insurance companies could turn you down for having a pre-existing condition. We can’t stand by while drug prices skyrocket, forcing people to choose between their medicine and a roof over their heads.
We want quality health care that people can afford. Better care means healthier families and more jobs – good jobs, with real pay and benefits. Nurses and other health care workers – and the patients they care for – shouldn’t be sacrificed to endless corporate profits.
Great schools open the door to a lifetime of success for those who work hard. We are committed to making the investments in public schools that prepare students for the jobs employers need to fill and career and technical education that ensure local workers have the skills for high-paying jobs.
We need to make sure advanced education and technical training are affordable so that Pennsylvanians aren’t saddled with crippling debt.
Pennsylvanians know you can’t get something for nothing. To afford all the things we need -- better schools, career and technical training, drug treatment, better roads and infrastructure, and more affordable health care -- everyone needs to pay their fair share.
Pennsylvania loses millions of dollars to tax breaks that wealthy CEOs and powerful special interests put in the tax code. We have to stop allowing them to write the rules that leave our seniors and working families footing the bill.
House Democrats have a plan to clean up our tax code, end the corporate handouts, and build a fair economy for our seniors, our families and our future.
