Newspaper blasts latest property tax sham

The newspaper that led the effort to repeal the 2005 Legislative pay raise and spearheaded a campaign to defeat Act 1 in 2006, has published an editorial today condemning the latest effort by Pennsylvania House Democrats to deal with the property tax issue.

House Bill 1600 is a rehash of earlier failed efforts and doesn't come close to reforming Pennsylvania's antiquated property tax laws, according to The Mercury in Pottstown, Pa.

The state's two leading grassroots organizations fighting for property tax relief, the Pennsylvania Coalition of Taxpayers Associations and S.T.O.P. (Stop Taxing Our Properties) have also condemned HB 1600, the latest effort by House Democrats to distract Pennsylvania voters with bogus tax reform.
