Congressman Carney, Commissioner O'Brien, State Rep. DePasquale & Congressional Candidate Cartwright to Join Mass. State Legislators Clark and Sanchez on the Romney-Ryan “Wrong For Pennsylvania” Bus Tour in Scranton
Event to Highlight How Romney-Ryan Plan Would Devastate Scranton By Raising Taxes On The Middle Class And Slashing Education Funding
SCRANTON—On Wednesday, August 29, Congressman Chris Carney, Commissioner Corey O'Brien, State Rep. Eugene DePasquale, and Congressional Candidate Matt Cartwright will join Mass. State Rep. Katherine Clark and Mass. State Sen. Jeffery Sanchez on the Romney-Ryan “Wrong for Pennsylvania” Bus Tour at the Lackawanna County Court House. Participants will discuss how the Romney-Ryan budget plan would be disastrous for middle class families, women, seniors, and students – raising taxes on the middle class, cutting funding for veterans programs and education investments, and turning Medicare into a voucher program to pay for tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires.
The tour is traveling throughout Pennsylvania, highlighting the disastrous consequences that the Romney-Ryan plan would have on the country and the middle class throughout the state. President Obama is fighting for an economy built to last by investing in the resources we need to rebuild America from the ground up – like innovation, education and job training – to keep our country moving forward. Previous bus tour stops include Erie, Pittsburgh, Altoona, State College, and Harrisburg.
The Romney-Ryan plan would give the wealthy more budget-busting tax breaks and raise taxes on the middle class and small businesses. Paul Ryan’s extreme budget would also cut an average of $810 in college scholarships for 313,000 Pennsylvania students, and Mitt Romney would repeal Obamacare, take away a woman’s right to choose and “get rid of” federal funding for Planned Parenthood.
