There has been much talk about the so-called "Fiscal Cliff," but little discussion about how the issue would affect working families and the most vulnerable people in Pennsylvania. Senior citizens, the disabled, and low-income families would be hardest hit if Congress does not come to an agreement on taxes and spending by the end of the year.
Some Mercer County residents delivered a turkey today to Rep. Mike Kelly's office in Greenville as a reminder of those who would be hardest hit if a deal is not reached that preserves the social safety net. Inspired by the new movement called "The Action," they told Kelly's staff that they expect Kelly to represent the interests of working families in negotiations.
Kelly's staff agreed to arrange a meeting with members of Keystone Progress, but remained non-committal about how Kelly would vote.
