Senator Mike Folmer Column: What I Learned from Election Reform

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

What I Learned from Election Reform

Long before I became chair of the Senate State Government Committee, I worked to reform election laws. It’s one of the reasons I wanted to chair the Committee.

First adopted in 1937, there have not been many substantial changes to the Pennsylvania Election Code over the years. I now better understand why.

Many advocates say they want changes. They love press conferences and rallies – yelling and chanting are especially popular. But, when it’s time to actually vote on bills, they’re too often hard to find. I guess it’s

Thomas Backs Budget that Preserves Keystone Grants Without Borrowing or Raising Taxes

 

HARRISBURG—Rep. Wendi Thomas (R-Bucks) joined a majority of her colleagues in passing a balanced, on-time budget that increases funding for education without raising taxes or borrowing.

 

“Currently, Pennsylvanians pay more in interest than the state of New York because our bond rating is so low,” Thomas said. “This budget takes a major step toward correcting that by growing the state’s Rainy Day Fund. This budget will deposit more than $250 million into what is the state’s main ‘savings account.’ And that

The $33.9 billion state budget that the Legislature sent to the governor this week has a lot of good things in store for the people of the 76th Legislative District.

An atheist group has dropped its attempt to strip American pastors of their tax exemption for housing.

The Freedom from Religion Foundation will not appeal an appeals court decision that said the federal government is allowed to exempt priests, pastors, rabbis, and other religious instructors from paying taxes on the housing they receive, ending an eight-year legal battle. The suit threatened to cost clergymen $1 billion if successful, but Chicago’s Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the foundation’s argument that such a tax break violated the Constitution’s establishment clause. The three

Seems Really Easy to Commit Treason if Your Name is President Donald Trump

Share

League of Power

We’re just about to the point where liberals will start accusing President Donald Trump of treason if he’s spotted using the wrong salad fork at Mar a Lago. There hasn’t been any logic or reason to things coming out of liberals’ mouths for quite a while now, but their latest “treason” accusation – against a sitting president, no less – is sheer lunacy.

It makes you wonder what they would say if the president committed an actual crime, such as speeding or tearing off a mattress tag. What’s left after treason, a betrayal of one’s country?

President Trump’s latest act of “treason” was to answer a hypothetical question asked by a political hitman posing as a “journalist” for ABC

Conservative Zone

In recent remarks, President Donald Trump indicated that former President Obama “certainly must have known about” the high-level efforts by intelligence operatives and the FBI to undermine his presidency.

Trump’s interview with George Stephanopoulos, anchor of ABC News’ “This Week” was filled with accusations about Obama and the undermining of Trump’s presidency. While Trump seems certain of the devious scheme he was a victim of, the president indicated that the real truth would be revealed soon, “I’m not gonna make that statement quite yet,” said Trump, but he did hint that more facts would come out soon.
