Outside mailers show political side of Pennsylvania budget time

Share

by Andrew Staub at Watchdog

As much as the June budget scramble is about the nitty-gritty of governing, it’s a time ripe for politicking (just check out this calendar of fundraising events as proof).

At least a handful of Republican state lawmakers recently received a reminder of that reality, as a nonprofit tied to the Democratic Governors Association targeted them after last week’s House vote on Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf’s tax plan.

Glossy mailers began landing in mailboxes over the weekend. They included an accusation that GOP representatives were “putting oil & gas companies over kids” when they voted against legislation that includes a severance tax on the natural gas industry to help fund education.

It was a quick

State Legislators take action of pension problems

Share

Republican John McGinnis and Democrat Tom Caltagirone are introducing legislation to fix the huge “pension crisis” in Pennsylvania. Please read the memo and actual Bill HB1400 (number can change in the early stage). Both are printed below.

 

 

John D McGinnis

Memo with Caltagirone

 

In the near future, we will be introducing legislation to improve the management standards of the state pension systems, SERS and PSERS.

 

Our legislation will address specific elements of standards of practice for the selection of board members and their training, including education, licensing requirements, and ethics. It will also establish standards for the selection of investment advisors and counselors by the boards of SERS and PSERS and will avail direction and compliance with the Financial Industry Regulatory

Legislators can help the homeowner. Will they?

Share

Many of you have heard about “Property Tax Elimination” or HB/SB 76. It has been batted around in PA legislature for over ten years now and soon it will be again up for a vote. In the original form it would have been a tax shift that would have totally eliminated school property tax by raising the sales tax from 6% to 7% and income taxes from 3.07% to 4.34%. This shift would allow the state to completely eliminate school property taxes forever. This bill would eliminate the potential loss of your home due to not being able to pay the taxes and it would free up all that tax money for the homeowner to buy more

DOD Charges Millions at Casinos, Strip Clubs on Govt. Credit Cards

Share

from Judicial Watch

In the latest of many flagrant examples of how tax dollars are wasted, government-issued credit cards were used by Department of Defense (DOD) employees to make more than $4 million in personal charges, including at casinos and strip clubs.

During a one-year period the agency charged 20 million transactions for $3.4 billion on government credit cards, according to a DOD Inspector General report issued this month. About $3.2 million of it was spent at casinos and nearly $1 million on personal expenses, including about $100,000 at strip clubs by 646 card holders. The casino charges were made through 4,437 transactions by 2,636 charge card holders, according to the report which breaks down expenditures by military branch.

It’s for the Children: After student deaths, union blocking Philly schools’ effort to hire more nurses

Share

by Evan Grossman at Watchdog.org

School nurses are a matter of life and death.

In the last few years, there have been two instances of children dying in city schools from situations that some believe could have been prevented if there was a full-time nurse on duty.

Nurses have been especially hard hit by Philly school cuts that have slashed the number of full-time nurses by about a third, from about 300 in 2011 to about 200 in 2014. When Sebastian Gerena, 7, died of a congenital heart defect last year and Laporshia Massey, 12, died after suffering an asthma attack in 2013, the tragedies illuminated one of the district’s most serious needs.

The Founders’ Model of Welfare Actually Reduced Poverty

Share

By Thomas West at the Daily Signal

Which approach to welfare policy is better for the poor: that of the Founders or that of today’s welfare state?

The more we spend on the poor, the harder it seems for them to attain decent, productive lives in loving families. The federal government has spent $22 trillion on anti-poverty programs since the beginning of the War on Poverty in 1965, but the poverty rate is nearly the same today as in 1969, fluctuating between roughly 11 and 15 percent over that time period.

As I argue in a new essay on “Poverty and Welfare in the American Founding,”these results are bound to continue unless we rethink welfare policy from the perspective of our
