That bill cleared both the Senate and House but was ultimately vetoed by Governor Wolf on July 9, 2015. As each year passes, the unfunded pension liability gets

Pennsylvania Loves Trump… Show Why They Jumped off Sinking Dem Ship

Share

BY MARTIN LIOLL/Conservative Tribune

Last year, for the first time since 1988, Pennsylvania went for the Republican candidate in a presidential election. That shocking result owes no small debt to President Donald Trump’s strong stand for coal power.

Trump reaffirmed that stand this week when he pulled the United States out of the Paris Agreement, a climate-change treaty that former President Barack Obama signed onto without actually putting to a vote in the Senate. Hence, it can be easily undone by the stroke of a pen — and that’s exactly what the new president did.

The people of Pennsylvania seem to have embraced the decision, too. In a Friday call-in to Continue reading…
