Issues

Campaign themes

Doyle's website highlights the following campaign themes:[2]

Creating New Jobs and Growing the Economy

  • Excerpt:"Pennsylvania ranks 49th in job growth. At the same time the Tax Foundation says Pennsylvania is 2nd highest in corporate business taxes in the Country. It should not surprise us that when we constantly punish the men and women who create jobs that those people will take their jobs elsewhere."

Bringing Accountability and Ethics Reform to Harrisburg

  • Excerpt:"Those who have been in office for years and years seem to think that the people of Pennsylvania will just follow them blindly as they vote themselves pay raises, perks and take liberties with the office in which they have been entrusted."

Bringing Fiscal Responsibility Back to State Government

  • Excerpt:"Harrisburg should run more like a business and more like an average Pennsylvania family - with a focus on the bottom line and not spending more than comes in each month. Politicians view the taxpayers as their own personal checkbook. We need to set priorities and focus on the big picture when it comes to spending."
