In January, Fat Eddie Rendell said he would not increase taxes.
Today, he announced a 16% increase in the personal income tax rate. The tax rate will increase from 3.07% to 3.57%. That represents a tax increase during a recession of about $2 Billion per year!
During his six years in office, Fat Eddie has increased state spending by an average of 7% per year or a total of 42% over the six years.
Question for Pennsylvania taxpayers: Did your pay increase by 42% in the last six years?
