Senate approves Argall’s efforts to crack down on welfare fraud

 

HARRISBURG – By a vote of 29 – 18, the Senate of Pennsylvania approved a measure authored by Senator David G. Argall (R-Schuylkill/Berks) to increase the number of investigators tasked with finding welfare waste, fraud, abuse and misuse.

 

Under Argall’s amendment, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) would hire at least 50 percent additional staff with a single purpose: investigate fraud, waste, misconduct and abuse claims from the Department of Human Services and Department of Health.

 

“For every dollar spent on welfare investigative and collective activities in the OIG, the state realizes an estimated benefit of $12,” Argall said. “This program would pay for itself again and again. More

The Washington Free Beacon Plan would lower GDP by 2.6 percent, lower wages, and eliminate 697,000 jobs

Hillary Clinton’s tax proposals would increase taxes by $1.4 trillion over the next decade and would reduce the growth of the economy by 2.6 percent, according to ananalysis from the Tax Foundation.

Since January when the Tax Foundation first scored Clinton’s tax plan, Clinton has introduced a number of new taxes on individuals and businesses. At that time, the Foundation estimated that her plan would raise

$5.6 trillion.

That’s how much a recent report from the American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC, estimates state and local governments across the U.S. have promised to their employees, but can’t afford to pay.

Normally, if an employer promises its workers more than it can pay, its workers lose out, but that’s unlikely to be the case here.

Since most state and local pension promises represent legal obligations, it will be state and local taxpayers who bear the burden of

Final Stretch

Share

Monday, October 24, 2016

Dear CF Friend,

Today begins the final three-day stretch of session before the election.

But a lot can happen in three days.

Pension reform remains a possibility. The Independent Fiscal Office is preparing to release its cost analysis of the latest proposal, which includes a side-by-side hybrid plan for new state employees. Once this happens, a conference committee can take up the legislation immediately.Meanwhile, a recent poll showed 54 percent of Pennsylvania voters favor placing new state employees in a 401(k)-style retirement plan. While the legislation under consideration doesn’t fully move new employees into a 401(k)-style plan, it’s a step toward improving the status quo. Legislation to save vape shops stalled in the House last week, but lawmakers could

The 28 initiatives Donald Trump plans to accomplish in his first 100 days, his “Contract with the American Voter”

Share

BY

I consider the upcoming presidential election a referendum. Are voters going to be for the We the People (Donald Trump) or for special interests, continued corruption, and establishment status quo (Hitlery Clinton)? Sounds like a no-brainer to me, but unfortunately there are millions of certified morons in the United States who enjoy the privilege to vote. A lot of dead folks, too.

Donald Trump has outlined 28 initiatives he plans to accomplish in this first 100 days, an impressive list, very beneficial to We the People, and very counter to the interests of beltway career parasites and K Street. Like I said, sounds like a no-brainer to me.

Offshore wind is so pricey that early investors in it, like Germany, plan to stop building new turbines to lower the costs of electricity and prop up its ailing power grid. (Photo: iStock Photos)

 

America’s first offshore wind power plant will cost about $17,600 dollars to build per home it will power.

Three miles off the coast of Block Island, Rhode Island, the wind farm is supposed to generate enough energy to power 17,000 homes, but will cost $300 million to build five turbines. This cost is just to build the turbines, not to operate them.

How Lawmakers Can Block Obamacare Bailouts

Edmund F. Haislmaier is an expert in health care policy and markets at The Heritage Foundation — and is frequently asked to assist federal and state lawmakers in designing and drafting health reform proposals and legislation.

Members of Congress working to block any Obamacare bailouts got two pieces of good news recently.

One was that the Department of Justice filed robust and persuasive motions to dismiss the lawsuits brought by insurers seeking payment for the rest of their Obamacare “risk corridor” program claims.

Leading members of Congress suspect a portion of a recent $1.7 billion cash payment to Iran may have been used to help arm and support Yemeni terrorists who recently fired missiles on a U.S. Navy ship in the Red Sea, according to a new congressional inquiry that seeks to determine how U.S. taxpayer funds are being used by Iran to boost its global terror operation.

Iran is believed to
