Have You Had Enough of the anti-Trump GOP Establishment Yet?

 

It’s time to fight back.

 

The GOP establishment is in lockstep with the Democratic Party in a no-holds-barred effort to stop Donald Trump and the agenda that we voted for. They own the political system and they are not willing to give up their stranglehold.

 

Well, it is up to us to pry it out of their grubby, little hands. In Pennsylvania, there are seven key obstructionists who are vulnerable in 2018. They have been blocking our agenda at every turn, and therefore, must go.

Of course, this is no easy feat. Anyone with even minimal experience will tell you that it is extremely difficult to unseat

Tax hikes under consideration in Harrisburg

Share

Monday, July 17, 2017

Dear CF Friend,

Gov. Wolf, some state lawmakers, and government union leaders continue to demand higher taxes on your family. These include potential taxes on families’ cable bills, homeowners’ heating bills, and restaurant patrons’ bar tabs, not to mention another tax on natural gas drillers.

Here’s why a severance tax is a terrible idea:

It only taxes gas drillers, who already pay an onerous 5% impact fee plus all the high taxes every Pennsylvania business pays. Gas prices are already depressed. A new tax would generate minimal revenue and hinder job growth when the gas industry is already laying off workers.

And here’s why any tax hike—severance or otherwise—would hurt our economy and future:

We’re losing

TERRORISM BREAKING: Terror in Pittsburgh, FBI Issues Nationwide Alert For More Attacks

By

One thing is certain – as President Trump takes the fight to our enemies in the Middle East and moves to protect our own borders, jihadists will also try to up the threat against us.

It may not be entirely obvious, since the mainstream media fails to report on the numerous low-level attacks being carried out, but if we don’t want that kind of violence to become a way of life, we need to WIN.

Improving Transparency in Lobbying

Share

Weekly Roundup Friday, July 14, 2017 The latest news from the State Capitol

Holding Lobbyists Accountable

To improve transparency within the lobbying process, a bill that I co-sponsored (House Bill 1175) passed the House this week to better address lobbying violations and to ensure the public has access to more information with respect to how lobbyists attempt to influence public policy.

The bill would increase the maximum penalty imposed by the Ethics Commission for an unlawful act from the current fine of $2,000 to $4,000. The bill also would increase the maximum administrative penalty that may be imposed for negligent failure to report violations under current law from $50 per day, to $50 for the first 10 days, $100 for each

Letter to the Editor: Petri Urges Return to Capitol to Finish Budget

 

On Tuesday, the House Speaker adjourned session until the call of the chair and the Senate has also adjourned. I think it is irresponsible to pass a spending bill without agreement from all four chambers and the governor on how to pay for the expenditures.

 

Many ideas were tossed around in the past two weeks, mostly centering on expanded gaming such as Video Gaming Terminals (VGTs) and Internet gaming. However, revenues from expanded gaming would not raise more than $200 million. The state treasurer has calculated that Pennsylvania will have to borrow $3 billion to meet the budget expenditures between now and April 2018. I am anticipating that the

Senator Mike Folmer Column: Lost Causes

Share

I’m proud to support Senator Argall’s Senate Bill 76 to eliminate school property taxes because no tax should have the power to leave you homeless.

SB 76 opponents claim very few people actually lose their homes because of not being able to pay property taxes. Yet, I often see newspapers’ legal notices about sheriff’s sales of properties. If just one person’s home is lost due to property taxes, it’s one too many.

That’s why I joined with Senator Argall and other Senators to advance the one measure that allows for the total elimination school property taxes: Senate Bill 76.

Unfortunately, I’ve been down this road before. In the beginning of my efforts to bring medical cannabis to Pennsylvania, I
