Poll: 60% of Pennsylvania Voters Reject Oil and Natural Gas Tax

Shocking!

Washington, July 21 – Six in 10 Pennsylvania voters oppose higher taxes on America’s oil and natural gas industry, according to a new 10-state poll released today. The poll – which was conducted by telephone by Harris Interactive on behalf of the American Petroleum Institute between July 15 and July 18, 2010, among 600 Pennsylvania registered voters – found that 60 percent oppose an increase, including 42 percent who strongly oppose. Only 30 percent support increasing taxes.

And everyone of them is a racist, bitter, gun toting, bible thumping redneck, right?  Or perhaps they are decent, hard working Pennsylvanians tired of the rhetoric; tired of subsidizing Harrisburg and DC’s spending sprees with their hard earned money; tired of being labeled ‘racist‘ or a nazi every time they question the leadership in DC.

These proposed taxes would only serve to raise the cost of energy for all consumers.  One of the proposed taxes, a severance tax, would be disastrous for Pennsylvania. The video under the fold explains what impact this tax would have on Pennsylvania:

Timothy J. Considine, Ph.D. of Natural Resource Economics and author of a new study on natural gas production in the Marcellus Shale region, explains how a Pennsylvania severance tax could reduce capital inflows for developing natural gas production in the state.

    Here in Oklahoma a few years ago, there was a proposal to add a nickle-per-gallon tax on fuel to repair roads and bridges. It failed. Why? Well, Oklahoma has around 12 different toll roads, yet, we still have some of the worst roads and bridges in the country. Our tax-n-spend democrat Governor Brad Henry pushed through a lottery and casino gambling, promising that it would fund our schools and colleges. Schools are still begging for money.

    Spend what we already give you more wisely, then, and only then, will we consider giving you more.

    I have long believed that Government needs to get some Mothers who are managing a household on a middle-class budget, and put them in charge of the federal budget.
