PA House Approves Quigley Plan to Study Property Tax Reform

In the flurry of last-minute activity, the PA House approved State Rep. Tom Quigley's resolution calling for the  creation of commission to study property tax reform. It's not the same as approving HB 1776, but at least it keeps the issue alive in Harrisburg.

Weekly GOP Address: Obamacare Must Be Repealed

Liberal Media Bias 101

The ultra-liberal Reading Eagle has a story in its Saturday edition about a rally sponsored by a left-wing activist group called Keystone Progress. The news value of the "protest" is questionable. The newspaper ignores many rallies by conservative groups, but it's the photo next to the article that drew my attention. 

The article says 40 people attended the rally. But the photo next to the story shows 1 woman holding a sign and part of a second woman standing near her. If you're going to take a photo of a rally, wouldn't you want to include as many people in it? Especially when only 40 people show up. Either the reporter wrote the story from a press release issued by the left-wing activists or the reporter can't count.

Gov. Corbett: Obamacare raises health care costs for families, employers and PA

"Despite the President's repeated assertions that this was not a tax, the Supreme Court today ruled that it is in fact a tax,'' Corbett said. "Not only is it a tax, but it may turn out to be one of the largest tax increases in the history of our nation. It is a tax on our citizens that they cannot afford. It is a tax that hits our small businesses the hardest and will kill job growth.
"This law will raise healthcare costs for our families, our employers and our state,'' Corbett said. "This is a burden to all of us who work every day to recover from the recession.

Rep. Kevin Boyle blocks Pa. property tax reform

The House Finance Committee voted 13-11 on Monday to table a vote to send House Bill 1776 (the Property Tax Independence Act) to the full House for a vote to eliminate school property taxes in Pennsylvania.

The vote effectively ends any hope of getting property tax reform in Pennsylvania this year.

Here are the names of the 13 state legislators (9 Republicans and 4 Democrats) who voted for the status quo and denied potential relief from burdensome school taxes for Pennsylvania taxpayers:

Kerry A. Benninghoff (R-Centre/Mifflin), Kevin J. Boyle (D-Philadelphia), Tim Briggs (D-Montgomery), Margo L. Davidson (D-Delaware), Madeleine Dean (D-Montgomery), Gordon Denlinger (R-Lancaster), George Dunbar (R-Westmoreland), Eli Evankovich (R-Armstrong/Westmoreland), Fred Keller (R-Snyder/Union), Duane Milne (R-Chester), Michael Peifer (R-Monroe/Pike/Wayne), Kathy L. Rapp (R-Forest/Mckean/Warren County) and Mario M. Scavello (R-Monroe).
All 13 of the lawmakers above are up for re-election this November. Make your voice heard and remove the professional politicians who continue to block property tax reform.

Here's a quick way to save a few million dollars. Trip the 500 school superintendents in Pennsylvania making between $100,000 and $200,000 a year down to about 40.


Columnist Paul Golias: We don't need 500 school systems. The administrative overkill is phenomenal. Luzerne County could function well as one school district. Public education in Pennsylvania likely could work with 40 districts. Smaller, rural-type counties could be tied together.

Romney Coming to Pennsylvania June 16

From the Romney for President Campaign:
 Mitt Romney will meet with America’s families and business owners in small towns in six states as part of his “Every Town Counts” five-day bus tour. The “Every Town Counts” bus tour will begin in New Hampshire on June 15 and will continue on to small towns in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Michigan.

"For three and a half years, President Obama has paid little attention to the everyday concerns of the American people,” Mitt Romney said. “President Obama has offered no hope for the future, and he has left American families to bear the burden of his failed policies. Too many American families have experienced a lost job, faced foreclosure, or been forced to spend their kids' college savings just to make ends meet. These are not statistics – these are our fellow Americans. In America’s small towns, you don't find despair -- you find boundless optimism. We know we can make America better, and that is why I am running for president."

Believe In America: Every Town Counts Bus Tour Outline

·         Friday, June 15 – New Hampshire

·         Saturday, June 16 – Pennsylvania 

·         Sunday, June 17 – Ohio

·         Monday, June 18 – Wisconsin and Iowa

·         Tuesday, June 19 – Michigan

More details will be announced in the coming days.
