Gov. Tom Corbett: STOP the Disability Tax on special needs kids in PA

Gov. Tom Corbett is requiring that EVERY family with Special Needs children pay an EXTRA TAX, 5% of their ENTIRE INCOME per YEAR! Gov. Corbett gave Shell Oil a $67 MILLION tax break. He made sure there was plenty of state money to fix something that wasn't broke in the first place: Voter Fraud. PA is the largest state with Natural Gas that does NOT TAX Fracking companies. Our tax dollars pay for child molesters to be fed and clothed every day in prison. But does not protect our own children. Parents should not have to choose between paying their mortgage and paying for CRUCIAL therapies for their special needs child.

As a mother to a 5 year old on the Autism Spectrum I can say with absolute certainty that having a special needs child is taxing on a marriage, family, income and livelihood.

WE DO NOT WISH TO BE TAXED FURTHER.

      If we don't stand up for children, then we don't stand for much.

      This tax would penalize families with special needs children.

      I am so ashamed Corbett is our governor in Pennsylvania. Obviously he has never cared about someone who has been born with special needs. It is very difficult when we have to deal with caloused people toward peole with special needs, and it is especially painful when he governs the state you live in!

      Because families with disabled kids already are over stressed with high costs of medical attention.

      Because these families have enough burden on them and they don't need to be penaltiized.
