Video: Closing Loopholes and Investing in a Better Pennsylvania

I wanted to share a video of my appearance last night on the PCN Call-In Program with Representative Dave Reed where we discussed business taxes in Pennsylvania.

While both Representative Reed and I agreed that it is important to close corporate tax loopholes, I made the case for a more comprehensive approach to doing so and for using the revenue it would raise to invest in schools and the public services that will help our economy to grow.

I said it is vitally important to look at coprorate taxes as a whole, which have been cut significantly over the past decade without much job growth to show for it. But what we have seen are devastating cuts to communities and higher local property taxes.

Watch the video below or at this link.
