Tools from the Commonwealth Foundation:  It doesn’t take a crystal ball to see that without swift action Pennsylvania’s fiscal house will soon burst into flames. State lawmakers have adequate warning about the threats to our economy, but business as usual will leave taxpayers and future generations with a four-alarm inferno.

For 40 consecutive years, total state spending increased in Pennsylvania. Regardless of the economy, taxpayers’ income and Democrat or Republican control, spending increased each and every year. Until 2011, that is. For the first time in memory, state government actually shrank last year.

The overspending of decades gone by has resulted in a sharp increase in Pennsylvania taxes. Today, Keystone State families pay more than $4,000 per person in state and local taxes, the 10th highest tax burden in the country. The effect: Pennsylvania ranks near the bottom in job, income and population growth over the past 20 years.
