Wagner Op-Ed

Senator Scott Wagner

Harrisburg has a spending problem, not a revenue problem. How many times have I made that statement in the last two years? I could probably do some back-of-the-napkin math to calculate an estimate, but let’s just say too many. Regardless, I will continue saying it until something changes with how our state government budgets your money. On June 29th the legislature approved a $31.53 billion spending plan, which increased spending by $1.406 billion or 4.7%. Once it was determined how much to spend, it was time to figure out how to pay for it. Is that how you budget in your household? That certainly isn’t how I budget for my businesses. I realize no one wanted a repeat of last

Why This Senator From the Largest Coal-Producing State Opposes a Mine Worker Pension Bailout

Share

By Rachel Greszler /at The Daily Signal

The the United Mine Workers of America deal does “absolutely nothing for miners who are not members of the UMWA,” Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., said. (Photo: Michael Reynolds/EPA/Newscom)

Rachel Greszler is a senior policy analyst in economics and entitlements at The Heritage Foundation’s Center for Data Analysis.

Wyoming produces 40 percent of the nation’s coal. That’s more than the next five largest coal-producing states combined. Yet, in a speech on the Senate floor Tuesday, Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., laid out why he opposes bailing out the United Mine Workers of America pension fund, and why taxpayers should too.

The issue at stake is the UMWA’s unfunded pension plan, which is

Welcome to Taxsylvania

By Rich Shuker

 

We need to thank Pennsylvania’s legislators for making us number one again… we now have the highest gas prices in America. This accomplishment comes to us because of the tax increases in the Transportation Bill, better known as the Financial to Disaster Bill. Pennsylvania is number one in corporate taxes, number one in interest swaps, the 10th highest taxed state overall, the sixth most regressive in taxes, the fourth most corrupt state, and if that’s not enough to brag about we have some of the highest-paid legislators in the country.

 

According to the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, as of January 2015, the state and local taxes discriminate against the lower and middle

Senators: Reinforce Inspector General’s office in order to prevent welfare fraud, save tax dollars

Share

HARRISBURG – Two senators are looking at ways to curb welfare fraud by increasing staff responsible for investigating claims regarding misuse of public benefits.

 

Senators David G. Argall (R-Schuylkill/Berks) and Ryan Aument (R-Lancaster) are proposing a measure to hire additional staff within the Office of Inspector General with a sole focus of investigating claims about welfare misconduct.

 

Based on prior conversations with the Office of Inspector General, Argall and Aument believe the savings could be significant and would restore integrity to programs that provide assistance to those with a genuine need.

 

“The ‘War on Poverty’ has been a dismal 50 year failure,” Argall said. “Our state and federal welfare programs have been exploited by those who make a living

The Obama administration is Trying to Bypass Congress to Continue Meddling in Local Education

Share

By Kenny Stein at Freedom Works

Last year, Congress passed the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) with bipartisan majorities in the House and Senate, reflecting a consensus that the federal government needed to pull back from the prescriptive mandates of the No Child Left Behind law and give states more flexibility. While imperfect, the ESSA sought to move in the right direction. Like most laws, however, the ESSA left a significant amount of implementation decisions to the administrative state, in this case the Department of Education. The Obama administration in new proposed regulations is seeking to use this regulatory power as a back door to continue imposing federal control over local education issues, even potentially continuing its efforts to force Common
