I am the owner and sole funder of 
The Liberty Index
and solely responsible for grading theActs of the General Assembly and the Governor. I would like to provide a context for
Representative Sam Smith
’s
grade.Because
The Liberty Index
is graded on a curve,
Representative Sam Smith
’s
grade shows therelative standing to other legislators and not to be understood that
Representative SamSmith
is
“For Liberty” or fiscally responsible.
Representative Sam Smith’s
grade and positionon the curve is not as bad as other members of the General Assembly. Given the General
Assembly’s
record, the
Representative Sam Smith’s
grade must be interpreted as not as badas the rest of a bad bunch.
Looking behind the grade at the actual votes, let us compare and contrast the rhetoric andthe reality of the record.
Disappointingly, the alleged fiscal conservative
Representative Sam Smith voted "YEA" foreight of eight Governor Ed Rendell
’s Bankrupting
Budgets
. During all this time,Representative Sam Smith was in the Leadership of House with former Speaker, now convictedfelon, John Perzel.With his
“YEA”
vote for
Capital Budget Act 130 of 2011
, Representative Sam Smith added$1.6 billion dollars in debt to Pe
nnsylvania’s Forgotten Taxpayer’s financial burden
and,simultaneously, voted millions for billionaire corporations: Comcast, Janney, TevaPharmaceuticals, ShopRite, Franklin Mint and $850,000 to Philadelphia Democrat ChakaFattah's Philadelphia House of Imoja and $1,970,000 to
Philadelphia University‐Arlen Specter
Library and $10,000,000 John P. Murtha Center for Public Policy Cambria
Contrary to Representative Sam
Smith’s
opportunistic rhetoric, the reality of the record isthat Representative Sam Smith is not T
he Forgotten Taxpayer’s BFF.
