Government taxes and fees

Recently, I traveled out of Pennsylvania on business and it showed how the rest of the country lives in freedom.

In Virginia, gasoline is $2.38 per gallon, while in Pennsylvania we are being covertly taxed over $.50 cents per gallon on our commute to work.

Do you heat your house with natural gas?

There’s a covert state tax.

Do you use electricity for lights, heat and air conditioning?

There’s a covert state tax.

Do you like to talk to people over the telephone? Another covert tax you pay.

Virginians can decide if their businesses are non-smoking or smoking establishments.

There are many other freedoms taken away by those elected to serve us from Harrisburg.
