Occupation in Harrisburg in June demanding a fair budget

Tomorrow is a critical moment in the fight for a fair budget as the legislature votes on a revenue package that can fund our schools and close a gaping 2.2 billion dollar deficit.

The right wing Republicans have stood in the school house door opposing taxing Marcellus shale and lavishing tax breaks on corporations while starving education and human services. They did this during the Corbett years and they have continued to do since Governor Wolf took office, ignoring the mandate the voters gave the Governor to fund our schools.

Tomorrow we will see if enough Republicans join Democrats to pass a revenue package. Here in Philadelphia we need to put pressure on state reps Martina White and John Taylor to step up. Click HERE to tell your state representative to support new revenue in the budget.
