Dear Lowman,


Please enjoy this issue, which focuses on PA's Budget Bomb.

Featured this week is the "Forgotten Taxpayer", who is about to be blown up by the
Budget Bomb. The Turnpike Commission is an almost entirely autonomous government
authority and Government the Profitable Nonprofits and private business? Is there
any difference.

Will Tim Carson Take a Cut?


You know that the economy is bad when Turnpike cuts employees

I have to think that Tim Carson, bond counsel at SaulEwing, won't be cutting his
fees.

Spending Won't Do It - Saving Will

The Commonwealth Foundation makes the case

that government spending, fueled by higher taxes on productive citizens, will not
get Pennsylvania out of budget shortfall. Punishing the productive by taking away
the benefits of their work seems unlikely to work and, I think, we are seeing in
it in the lackluster performance of Pennsylvania's economy. One of my [failed]
therapists commented on the power of "an efficacy experience" to motivate good
behavior and I think that applies to getting paid for work. Work=Pay, a simple idea
that may benefit the common wealth.
The Commonwealth Foundation has identified SIX BILLION $6,000,000,000 in cuts in
spending not affecting basic and necessary government services

including government 'economic development' projects that consume tax money without
producing any return on investment.

Profitable NonProfits Taxed
Is this an idea whose time has come? Universities look like businesses. They sell
a service and charge for it. Employees, faculty and administrators, are paid well
above average wages. Some may say this will increase cost of universities and,
therefore,
make education more expensive. Education is so expensive because it is so subsidized.
Should nonprofits pay fees

RALPH NARDONE
Times Leader Correspondent November 24, 2008
In March 2008, state Sen. Wayne Fontana, from Pittsburgh, introduced a bill that
would allow municipalities to enact an "essential services fee" of $100 for every
1,000 square feet for facilities over 5,000 square feet. The bill died, according
to Amie Downs, chief of staff for Fontana. It may be reintroduced early next year
after some revisions.
"[Robert Kelly] adds some nonprofits are evolving into highly complex organizations
that resemble for-profit businesses, raising the eyebrows of taxing bodies. A fee
based on square footage is "doomed to fail" because of the complexity. For example,
a college book store or hospital garage are considered taxable, even though part
of the larger organizations, Burke said."
