Credit Downgrade Due to Void of Leadership, Wagner says

HARRISBURG – Senator Scott Wagner (R-York) voiced his frustration for the latest credit downgrade by Standard & Poor’s (S&P).

Governor Wolf has the constitutional responsibility to put aside tax dollars into budgetary reserve funds, which he refused to do last year despite revenues coming in below expectations.

“This is the second time in three years the state has been hit with a credit downgrade, and my question is: where is the leadership to stop this ongoing trend?,” Wagner asked.

Wagner said tax increases should not be on the table. Instead,

Why is anyone talking about DACA when the RAISE Act ending chain migration still has not passed?

Share

By Robert Romano at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

“Chain migration cannot be allowed to be part of any legislation on immigration!”

Now we’re talking.

That was President Donald Trump on Twitter on Sept. 15 throwing out another condition to his calls for Congress to legalize former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) that allowed illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as minors to remain.

The stipulation came a day after Trump, speaking in Ft. Myers, Fla. said, “Very important is the wall. We have to be sure the wall isn’t obstructed because without the wall I wouldn’t do anything… It doesn’t have to be here but they can’t obstruct the wall if its in

An institute that works to “end family breakdown” lost its payment processing company after the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), an Alabama-based liberal 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, had labeled the organization as a “hate group.”

The SPLC fought the Ku Klux Klan in the 1970s but is now best known for its “hate map,” which features mainstream conservative groups alongside hate groups like the KKK. The group has turned into

The Judicial Crisis Network is launching ad campaigns against two Democratic senators who are blocking President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees.

The two campaigns are against Sens. Al Franken, D-Minn., and Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. Franken is refusing to return the blue slip for Justice David Stras, nominated to serve on the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. And Feinstein attacked Amy Barrett, nominated for the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, for her Catholic faith at a confirmation hearing Sept. 6.

Governor Wolf’s Road Trip for Planned Parenthood Continues, While Senators Stand Up for Life

TAKE ACTION: We need you to send two emails TODAY (and we’ve made it easy with our Citizen Action Center).

 

Dear Citizens

 

Today, while members of the State Senate stand to condemn the aborting of babies diagnosed with Down syndrome, Pennsylvania’s Governor joins the state’s largest abortion business – Planned Parenthood – for another photo-op.

 

A recent CBS report praised Iceland for virtually eliminating Down syndrome, yet this seeming “accomplishment” only happened because that country is now proudly aborting 100% of those with a prenatal Down syndrome diagnosis. That’s not eliminating a disease, it’s eliminating people.

 

There is no

Where is the Money Going?

Share

By Adam Brandon at FreedomWorks 1 day ago

The fix is in. Did you know, Americans spent more on taxes (on average) than food and clothing combined in 2016? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average U.S. tax bill has increased by 41.13 percent in just three years.

No wonder half of Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck. Meanwhile, the federal debt stands at $19.976 trillion, which is bigger than U.S. gross domestic product (GDP).

You can’t help but wonder, where is the money going?
