Hoarders: PA Schools Edition

Share

Tuesday, September 6, 2016

Dear CF Friend,

Are your property taxes rising? If so, you may want to check if your local school district is hoarding the extra cash.

A Montgomery County judge recently ruled the Lower Merion School District must revoke a portion of its most recent tax hike because the district misled taxpayers by projecting large budget shortfalls despite squirreling away millions of dollars in reserve.

School districts are allowed to maintain reserve funds—but should they continue to raise property taxes while these nest eggs grow larger and larger?

Lower Merion’s reserves were nearly 25% of total spending, and dozens of other school districts have an even higher percent in reserve.

We’ve created a searchable, sortable database that includes

Today is the 20th anniversary of welfare reform. Two decades ago, President Bill Clinton signed the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act, known as welfare reform, into law.

The highly popular reform cut welfare caseloads by over 50 percent, sharply boosted the employment of the least-skilled single mothers, and pushed the poverty rates of black children and single-parent families to historic lows.

But the left always hated welfare

LVC Note: This article confirms what we have been saying for over six years. School Districts have amassed over Four Billion Dollars in Reserves while constantly raising School Taxes. THE SCAM RUNS LIKE THIS–EVERY YEAR DISTRICTS OVER ESTIMATE EXPENSES AND UNDER ESTIMATE REVENUES DURING THE BUDGET PREPARATION PROCESS. Then they claim they have a balanced budget. AT THE END OF THE YEAR–EXPENSES RUN LOWER AND REVENUES RUN HIGHER–CREATING SURPLUS–THAT THE DISTRICT PUTS AWAY IN RESERVES.

Please read through this story and see how it was done in this case, a case that copies School Districts across the State.

Krauthammer: Obama Admin ‘Lied Shamelessly’ About Entire Iran Deal

Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer slammed the Obama Administration on Thursday, telling Fox News anchor Shannon Bream that they have “lie[d] shamelessly” about the entire Iran nuclear deal.

Bream could tell that Krauthammer was anxiously waiting to share his thoughts.

“Charles, you’re chomping at the bit. I can see it over here,” Bream said.

Krauthammer said that he was amused by how obvious it was that the Obama administration was sending $400 million to Iran as part of a hostage negotiation back in January.

“I think I remember saying these guys are not paid enough, the spokesmen, who have to

A new state law in Maine went into effect last month prohibiting welfare recipients from purchasing items like alcohol, lottery tickets, and tattoos with their welfare funds.

Alongside Kansas, Maine has been one of the leading states reforming welfare, and nearly half of the states have already taken action.

Maine Gov. Paul LePage, a Republican, made welfare reform a cornerstone of his gubernatorial campaign, and since taking office, the state

In 2006, a “Costing-Out Study” called for a 50% increase in Pennsylvania’s basic education spending: at least $3.17 Billion more (to $6.02 Billion). Funding that year was boosted to $4.78 Billion (a 18.3% increase) with total education spending of $9.93 Billion.

Advocates continued to cite the Costing-Out Study to increase education spending – even though they couldn’t fully explain the study’s use of “hypothetical school districts” and why it didn’t focus on low cost/high performance schools.

Over the past 10 years, education funding has grown from $9.93 Billion to $11.78 Billion (nearly a 17% increase). Today, this translates to $32,277,643.84 spent a day, $1,344,901.83 an hour,

Insurer participation in Obamacare will continue its steep decline next year, according to an expert who tracks the issue.

Participation by insurers in the Obamacare exchanges has already declined by 27 percent since the law took effect. In 2013, just before Obamacare took effect, 395 insurers offered individual market coverage. In 2016, that number dropped to 287, according to an analysis by Ed Haislmaier, a senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation.
