Tag: Immunity

Speaking in Lackawanna County, Gov. Josh Shapiro responded to the Supreme Court decision on presidential immunity, calling it a “dark day for America.”

After joining Rep. Matt Cartwright and Secretary of Revenue Pat Browne to announce that rebates on property taxes and rent paid in 2023 as part of the Property Tax/Rent Rebate (PTRR) program are starting to be distributed, Shapiro was queried about the decision.

“Here in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, we made a conscious choice to break away from tyranny, to break away from a monarchy, to break away from a world where certain people were above the law,” he said. “And throughout the last 247 years, we have oft repeated that no one is above the law, and in many ways, that has been a stabilizing force for our democracy. That no matter what you look like or where you come from, who you pray to, which was critically important to the founder of this Commonwealth, that you ultimately would be treated equal under the eyes of the law.

“Today, sadly, the Supreme Court of the United States upended that and broke away from that bond of equality that has fostered the growth of this nation and has kept this nation together over two and a half centuries. I think this is a dark day for America, holding that now there is at least one person who is above the law. That is not the very core principle that this nation was founded, and the Supreme Court, I think, has ushered us into a dangerous new era, and one that all Americans should be concerned about.

“I have grave concerns with this ruling today, and not just because of what it means for Donald Trump – a corrupt individual who now is legally above the law in many cases – but I worry about the future of this nation, and I worry about the fact that we no longer have that same underpinning of equality that our founding fathers worked so hard to develop in the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection – the city of Philadelphia. This is a dark day in America.

“We’re going to move forward. We’ll do everything we can to fight and to make sure that we are able to bring back more equality in our system, to unpack the Supreme Court that Donald Trump had in his last term. God forbid we give him the chance to add more justices of this type of mind to a Supreme Court in the future. That’s why I’m going so hard to make sure in this election, we vote for freedom. We devote we vote for democracy, we vote for a rule of law, that is fair for all. Thank you all very much.”
