Reason Pa. May Not Have Highway Money

Pennsylvania lawmaker billed taxpayers $1.8 million in expenses
"State Rep. Chris Sainato (D) From when he was elected to the House in late 1994 to mid-January of this year, Sainato spent or has been reimbursed personally for more than $1.8 million...

... During that same time, Sainato and other lawmakers — who make up the largest full-time legislature in the nation — have received near-annual cost-of-living increases, and are today among the best paid in the U.S. In 2020, Sainato was paid a salary of $90,335, plus $21,951 in expense reimbursements and $30,746 in per diems, most of which he collected during the pandemic, with the state’s economy at a standstill and millions out of work."

Voters PAY but have no SAY

There's lots of talk about redistricting. One thing never talked about is cutting the number of them in half.

And there's not a damn thing we can do about it.
