For Immediate Release

Argall votes again to end budget stalemate

 

HARRISBURG – Senator David G. Argall (R-Schuylkill/Berks) released the following statement regarding his vote in favor of a plan to fund state government for the remainder of the 2015-16 fiscal year:

 

“This budget plan gives funding needed by school districts, hospitals and the agriculture community, along with several other areas that were vetoed by the governor in December. Most importantly, unlike other proposals, this plan does not jeopardize our ongoing bipartisan efforts to eliminate school property taxes, which is by far the number one issue for the residents of Berks and Schuylkill Counties.”

How Progressive Taxation Destroys Capitalism

“This slow rate of progress was due to two reasons — the remarkable absence of technical improvements and to the failure of capital to accumulate.”

— John Maynard Keynes (1930)

What is the key to economic success, growth and progress?

Robert Solow, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) economist famous for his Solow Growth Model, found that technology accounted for more than 75% of a nation’s economic growth rate.

And what is the fuel that fires up the engine of technology and results in an increase in the quantity, quality and variety of

LVC note: Without School Property Tax Elimination- You Really Never Own Your Home! Hello,

“Where is Kim Ward?” I heard over and over Thursday night at the Greensburg Garden and Civic Center. Where is she hiding is more like it!

The misinformation and propaganda keeps on coming from Ward’s ivory tower. However, this time she didn’t just send spies…she sent her misinformed minions! The leader even said she was an AFP regional rep…I thought AFP was neutral on 76?

You have to laugh though, these “protesters” had no idea what was in the PTIA 76. After Ron Boltz and Jim Rodkey educated a few of them outside, you should have seen the steam coming from the lead, self-proclaimed, AFP troll!

How are working Americans supposed to pay for a carbon tax?

Share

 

By Dustin Howard at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

In the State of the Union Address last month, President Obama renewed his call for a carbon tax. He called to “change the way we manage our oil and coal resources, so that they better reflect the costs they impose on taxpayers, and the earth.” The President’s proposals are purportedly advanced in the name of the people, but what do the people think?

About a month ago, a poll was conducted by YouGov to ask the world about their concern about climate change. Nine percent of Americans expressed they were concerned. Another poll conducted in November by Fox News found the number

Tom Wolf’s budget cut of $3 billion in state education funding, the administration has sent a school closing checklist to help schools shut their doors. That action is completely unnecessary as the governor has it within his power to ensure that schools are funded and stay open.When the General Assembly sent a budget to the governor’s desk in December, schools were set to receive a historic level of state aid, until the governor vetoed several education line items, including half of the allocation schools

The Obama administration isn’t prepared for a revived wave of unaccompanied children crossing illegally into the United States, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said Tuesday.

In opening remarks before a Judiciary Committee hearing, Grassley criticized the White House for “shirking responsibility” while the influx of Central American children fleeing across the U.S.-Mexico border threatens to outpace 2014’s crisis.
