According to a recent analysis from the state’s Department of Community and Economic Development, Harrisburg is likely to end the year with a nearly $3.5 million deficit in its $58 million budget, and things are only expected to get worse.
By 2015, the deficit is likely to be $10.4 million, which will eat up about 16 percent of the city’s general fund budget.
And guess what happened?
Religion in politics is just bullhshyte cover to keep a religious base off of you when you are not doing your job.
