“Last night I spoke on the House floor against the proposed cigarette tax increase. My full comments are available below. Hardworking Philadelphians and those visiting the city should not have to pay more and have those tax dollars funneled to the teacher union coffers. I will continue to oppose any and all tax increases. The government takes too much of our hard earned money already.” ~ Representative Daryl Metcalfe
