Pennsylvania has been awarding per diems for politicians for many years, then implementing gas tax hikes, which results in higher food costs. This makes them immune to both since they are paid to dine and drive in to work.

Did you know that a PennLive review of expense records for lawmakers' meals and lodging while in Harrisburg or elsewhere conducting legislative business during the 12-month period between Dec. 1, 2015, and Nov. 30, 2016, totaled $2.4 million?

How many Pennsylvanians get paid to drive to work and dine during the day?

This is a bipartisan issue, especially in these challenging times when they are demanding more and more money. PA Treasurer Stacy Garrity just said that her office alone needs another $3 million to operate this year. 

This is not representation, this is quite the opposite and it needs to end.
