What’s Happening at the SERS?

Share

By Rich Shuker

On July 22, 2016, SERS chairman, David Fillman released a statement concerning the indictment of Richard Ireland because of his relationship with former Treasurer and former SERS Board Member, Rob McCord, who pleaded guilty to counts of attempted extortion. Feldman wanted to ensure the SERS members that there were no dealings with Ireland, noting the SERS has a strict diligent process and stated that the 11 member board votes unilaterally about investment decisions.

 

(Interesting), he never mentioned the investigation of Anthony Clark, who was the Chief Investment Officer in 2010 through 2013. He wanted the SERS to invest $250

Risky Revenue ‘Fixes’ Fail Again

Share

Dear CF Friend,

We’ve long warned cigarette taxes fail to live up to rosy revenue projections.

Now, Philly’s cigarette tax, intended to fund education, has predictably fallen short. That means taxpayers statewide will be forced to chip in millions to fund Philadelphia schools.

The Philadelphia Inquirer recently reported:

Tax revenues from Philadelphia’s $2-per-pack cigarette tax for this fiscal year are projected to be almost $26 million lower than initial projections, according to the City Controller’s Office.

But the Philadelphia School District says the shortfall is not expected to put the district at risk.

… According to a state provision, if local revenues from the city’s tax do not reach $58 million, the state will cover the difference.

The upshot? “There’s no risk

Discrimination in Harrisburg

By Rich Shuker

Simple Definition of discrimination: “the practice of unfairly treating a person or group of people differently from other people or groups of people”

 

The most discriminatory taxes in Pennsylvania are the school and property taxes. These taxes unfairly target the retired, veterans, and low to middle income earners to the point that government either steals their home when unable to pay the taxes or makes it impossible for this group of people to purchase them.

 

First, let’s look at how school taxes discriminate against the retired. According to the Independent Fiscal Office, years 2001 through 2011, school taxes have gone up 5.58% per year; at the same time Social Security for the retired went up 2.43 %

Don’t Let the Media Confuse You: Obamacare Is a Policy Failure

Leave it to the media, which spent the latter half of 2016 highlighting how outrageously expensive Obamacare premiums were becoming, to suddenly shift gears in 2017 and stress the health law’s many “pluses.”

Such was the case in a recent interview with Heritage President Jim DeMint, in which CNN anchor Carol Costello suggested that lawmakers

Dear President-elect Trump, bring back welfare reform

Share

By Natalia Castro at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

In 1996, President Clinton did something right in the field of welfare reform. With bipartisan support, changes made government assistance a true transition into the working world and required able bodied adults applying for welfare to prove they were actively job seeking. In 2012, President Obama removed this mandate, and now our labor force is suffering.

Clinton’s welfare reform law placed restrictions on long term welfare recipients in order to transition the program to one which reduces dependency. Not only did these reforms require individual families to seek employment to receive benefits but as The Atlantic of Aug. 2012 explains, “states have to show that 50 percent of welfare-receiving families

Rescinding EPA electricity rules key to making America competitive again

Share

By Natalia Castro at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

The EPA has helped to strangle U.S. economic growth for the last eight years with its 2009 carbon endangerment finding and subsequent rules against new and existing coal power plants, dubbed the Clean Power Plan. But regulatory policy has not just represented significant government overreach, it has also undermined U.S. competitiveness globally.

Now, with the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump on Jan. 20, the U.S. could be poised to reclaim its mantle as the world’s foremost economic power — by stopping further job-killing regulations from being implemented and rescinding the Obama regulations either under the terms of the Administrative Procedures Act, a process that can take a couple of years, or
