Re Eagle article March 16, 2018

As the moderator of the past two meetings of the Berks County Patriots with gubernatorial candidates Scott Wagner and Paulk Mango, the most contentious issue that prompted the lead headline for the article was who is the strongest prolife candidate? With all due respect that Senator Wagner is obligated to defend the legislation he supported, Mango has no track record to defend. What is clear is that both candidates are implying by their ads that neither is forthright in their position.

My point is, while prolife may reflect the character of a candidate, this dwarfs the issues facing the state. In fact, if the legislature does not submit a bill for the governor’s signature, it becomes a moot point.

Pennsylvania has the most expensive full time legislature in the nation. By most standards, it’s the most corrupt. It enjoys a defined benefit pension system that, based on the PA Constitution Art II, section 8, they are entitled to salary and mileage and no other compensation whatever. Through underfunding, they’ve driven the pension deficit to over 60 billion dollars. With the burden of government cost and no Right to Work Law contributing to PA being at the bottom for attracting business and jobs, any new opportunities from off shore companies returning to this country as a result of President Trump’s policies will not move to PA, but to the states with a more friendly business climate.

I suggest the focus for a new governor should be which candidate will drain the Harrisburg swamp?
