PA Dem Senator from Philly Intros Bill to Steal Marcellus Money

PA State Sen. Vincent Hughes

Pennsylvania State Sen. Vincent Hughes from Philadelphia is in the back pocket of Big Education. And why not? Hughes has received $635,000+ from Big Education unions over the years. Therefore, Hughes does their bidding, since they pay him to. We previously told you about Hughes attacking the Marcellus industry with slanders, slurs and outright lies in an attempt to paint the industry as greedy because they have resisted a severance tax on top of an existing impact tax (see PA Senator from Philly Slanders Marcellus, Accepts $635K in Union $). Hughes is at it again. He’s just introduced a bill, Senate Bill (SB) 777, that allows the close-to-bankrupt Philadelphia school system to borrow a MASSIVE $5 billion, with a promise to raid Marcellus drillers via an obscene severance tax (on top of the existing impact tax) to pay back the $5 billion. This is what passes for smart around Philly. We suspect Hughes himself is a product of Philly’s failed education system…
