Gerlach votes to reject Obama debt limit increase

U.S. Rep. Jim Gerlach, who represents Pennsylvania's 6th Congressional District, issued the following statement on Monday night's vote by the House of Representatives to reject a request from President Obama to raise the debt limit to $16.7 trillion without any reduction in federal spending:
"When your national debt is $14.3 trillion, increasing the debt limit without demanding a change in Washington's spending habits would be irresponsible. This vote acknowledges that constituents in my district and across the country have said enough is enough. They want honest leadership and a responsible plan for substantial spending cuts. This legislation would have kept us on the unsustainable path toward deeper debt and unrestrained deficit spending.

After years of spending sprees, our $14.3 trillion national debt is as large as our entire economy. This huge debt burden rattles the confidence of small business owners and investors and extinguishes opportunity for current and future generations. The federal government is borrowing more than 40 cents of every dollar it spends right now. Tonight, we let everyone know Washington cannot get away with that kind of reckless spending and that Congress will resist any attempt to raise the debt limit without real solutions for controlling spending."
The bill to raise the debt limit (H.R. 1954) failed when just 97 members of the House voted for it while 318 members voted against it. The federal debt has risen by more than $3 trillion since Obama took office.

Don't Americans have the Right to Economic Freedom?

Columnist: Unholy alliance dominates the school funding process

If you're wondering why our public education system has failed consider where the money is being spent. Hint: It's not on the students.

From an op-ed by Joseph J. Ryan:
Union members receive 10 days sick leave, two days family-related sick leave, and three personal holidays. Contrived sick leave is a constant source of taxpayer abuse. Also included are retirement increment; incremental longevity increase, professional leave; death in the family leave; jury duty and election official leave; association leave and graduate study reimbursement. Upon completion of an advanced study course, i.e., an academically inconsequential education course, they receive an automatic salary increase. All of the above at the expense of district taxpayers.

Serious consideration should be given to reducing the number of employees within the "jobs project" public school system. In addition to the 2.7 million teachers and 215,000 administrators, there are 2.5 million support personnel including reading specialists, guidance counselors, teachers aides and others. The total number of personnel exceeds five million, the number of students 49 million, a ratio of one adult to 9.8 students.

PA Auditor General: Keep public notices in newspapers

Pennsylvania Auditor General Jack Wagner, the state's top elected Democrat, on efforts by the state Legislature to change the law requiring government bodies to publish legal notices in newspapers
House Bill 633, if enacted, would be another setback in making government more open and accountable to the public. Citizens interested in reviewing public notices would have to visit multiple websites to obtain the information they are seeking. This is not convenient and will decrease, rather than increase, bidding competition. In short, it's a bad deal for taxpayers.

Rep. Quigley Supports House Budget

Rep. Tom Quigley (R-Montgomery) released the following statement regarding his support of the $27.3 billion General Fund budget for 2011-12 passed today by the Pennsylvania House of Representatives:
"I am very pleased that we are on schedule to pass a punctual and balanced budget, which will meet the Commonwealth’s responsibilities and sensibly allocate our limited resources. Our economy is still in a state of recovery and we have no reserve funds, so it is important for us to budget with caution and restraint. This budget proposal is reflective of the revenue we have on hand now and what we can realistically expect to collect next year.

"One aspect of this budget I am particularly supportive of is its restoration of some of the funds cut from basic and higher education. We were able to achieve this by rooting out fraud and waste in our welfare system. I believe this approach is in line with the priorities of most Pennsylvanians and appropriately represents the concerns of our citizens. Schools, however, must continue to seek out cost reductions, and the state must constantly look to streamline programs and increase efficiencies.

"This vote does not signify the end of the budget process. The legislation will now go before the Senate for its revisions, and negotiations will be ongoing. The final budget bill could still look very different, but I am hopeful it will be a plan that sets Pennsylvania back on the path to prosperity."
The House Republican budget plan was approved 109-92, primarily along party lines. House Bill 1485 now moves to the Senate for consideration.

Hollywood liberals display usual hypocrisy

Don't you just love it when the Hollywood liberal elite who are trying to sell you on "green" products move into these huge mansions that require all sorts of power to operate?

From a post at Big Hollywood by Ezra Dulis:
It's been almost half a decade since An Inconvenient Truth came out. I'm no scientist, but the fact that I can count the number of true climate change alarmists who have actually scaled down their standard of living (even though they still work in one of the most unnecessary wasteful industries in the country) on one hand is all I need to know about that documentary's warnings. Note to Jenn: since neither you nor your peers are exemplifying a real solution for global climate catastrophe, does it really make sense to move to a city that will become the Ground Zero of rising ocean levels?

Eileen Behr wins nod for Montco Sheriff

The biggest contest in Montgomery County Tuesday was the race for the Republican nomination for Sheriff.

The endorsed candidate, Eileen Whalon Behr, who was nominated as interim sheriff by Gov. Tom Corbett, faced a challenge from Robert J. Durante, another law enforcement veteran.

In this case, the party backing proved decisive.

Behr, 54, of Lafayette Hill, who recently retired as Whitemarsh police chief, finished with 21,493 votes while Durante, 58, of Norristown, trailed with 9,839 votes with 100 percent of precincts reporting, according to unofficial election results.

Behr, who has been in law enforcement for more than 30 years, is the heavy favorite to become the first female elected sheriff in Montgomery County history.

She was not taking anything for granted Tuesday when she spoke to Mercury reporter Carl Hessler Jr.

"It's only step one. We still have a long way to go to November," Behr said from a celebration at Montgomery County Republican headquarters. "I'm very grateful for all the people who came out to support me."

Behr's opponent in the November general election will be Democrat William A. Holt Jr., 65, of Abington, a former detective sergeant with the Abington Police Department.

The winner of the November contest will succeed longtime Sheriff John P. Durante, who died last year from a heart attack at age 60. The late sheriff is no relation to Robert J. Durante.

Turnout was low, with about 13 percent of Montgomery County voters going to the polls for the primary election.

Obamacare = Corruption

Liberal elites like Nancy Pelosi get the benefits while the American taxpayer gets the shaft. It's the Obama way.

From The Daily Caller:
Of the 204 new Obamacare waivers President Barack Obama's administration approved in April, 38 are for fancy eateries, hip nightclubs and decadent hotels in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's Northern California district.

That's in addition to the 27 new waivers for health care or drug companies and the 31 new union waivers Obama's Department of Health and Human Services approved.

Pelosi's district secured almost 20 percent of the latest issuance of waivers nationwide, and the companies that won them didn’t have much in common with companies throughout the rest of the country that have received Obamacare waivers.

Other common waiver recipients were labor union chapters, large corporations, financial firms and local governments. But Pelosi's district's waivers are the first major examples of luxurious, gourmet restaurants and hotels getting a year-long pass from Obamacare.

Is U.S. officially broke?

As the federal government hit its debt limit of $14.294 trillion today, U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) is calling on the Obama Administration to "get serious about cutting spending, reducing our deficits and putting our country on a fiscally responsible path."

From a Toomey press release:
"Instead of offering ideas for cutting spending and enacting serious spending reforms, the administration has been engaging in scare tactics in an attempt to convince Congress to raise the debt limit without significant conditions attached. But the most irresponsible thing we can do is simply kick the can down the road and continue with business in usual in Washington. I have introduced legislation to make sure the United States will not default on our national debt. If the administration was truly concerned about defaulting on our debt, it would support the Full Faith and Credit Act which prioritizes paying the interest on our debt to avoid default. Now is the time for the administration and Congress to put aside the hyperbole and have an adult conversation about putting our country on a sustainable fiscal path."

Rep. Pitts: Playing Politics With Dangerous Waste

Playing Politics With Dangerous Waste

By Congressman Joe Pitts

Imagine if we could take the most dangerous waste in the world and ship it by rocket into the sun. While the costs of doing this would be prohibitive, in the coming century we may be able to bring the sun to the waste. Scientists are working on fusion reactors and high-powered lasers that in the future may be able to obliterate nuclear waste. Highly radioactive material would be broken down into a harmless soup of sub-atomic particles.

Unfortunately, our present reality is this: 65,000 metric tons of commercial spent nuclear fuel. This is stored at 75 sites in 33 states and it increases by 2,000 metric tons every year. Eleven of these sites are located in Pennsylvania or adjoining states.

Most of this spent fuel is kept in secure pools to keep the waste cool. When space in the pools run out, waste is transferred to dry casks and monitored closely. Both of these solutions are meant to be temporary.

For over five decades, the federal government has recognized that the best long-term solution to storing waste would be deep beneath the earth inside a stable mountain. In the early 1980s, after years of half-hearted attempts, the federal government set out to determine the best location for a national nuclear waste repository.

At the same time, operators of nuclear power plants were required to contribute to a federal government fund to pay for the design and construction of the repository. The government has collected $25 billion in fees. While the plant operators pay these fees, the fees contribute to higher energy bills for consumers.

After years of investigation and analysis, Yucca Mountain in the Nevada desert was selected as the site for the repository. At this time, $15 billion was spent evaluating the site and applying for the license. Despite billions already spent, the Department of Energy, at the direction of President Obama, shut down the project.

Just last week, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released their report on the Obama administration decision to shut down Yucca Mountain and the repercussions it will have on how we store nuclear waste. The report clearly stated: "The Department of Energy's decision to terminate the Yucca Mountain repository program was made for policy reasons, not technical or safety reasons."

The Majority Leader of the Senate and close Obama-ally, Harry Reid (D-NV), has long opposed the project. This is despite support for the repository among his constituents living closest to the facility. Obama bowed to pressure from Reid and even appointed a long-time Reid staffer to serve on the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

The GAO report reveals the hasty shut down of the project. While contractors working on Yucca Mountain said that they would need two years to properly shut things down, they were given four months. Staff on the Yucca Mountain project could have been retained to work on another long-term solution, but instead they were given six months to find a new job. Offices were closed down; furniture, construction equipment, and scientific equipment were sold off as soon as possible.

Upon shutting down the project, the President called for a new "blue-ribbon" panel to consider what to do with waste. They can consider every option—except using Yucca Mountain.

Unfortunately, we may now also lack the funding to ever build an alternative. With $15 billion spent on nothing, the remaining $10 billion will not be enough to locate and study a new site. This is further complicated by the fact that some nuclear plants will be decommissioned in the coming years. These plants will stop paying fees and, by law, the government will own the waste.

In ancient times, armies would destroy a city and then sow salt in order to symbolize that it should never be rebuilt. The Department of Energy has attempted to sow salt at Yucca Mountain. The GAO concluded that the way Yucca Mountain was hastily closed down would make it difficult to restart.

Unfortunately, we can't wait for science fiction to solve our nuclear waste problem. While it may be difficult to restart, Yucca Mountain is a much safer alternative than letting waste reside all across the country. Let's not let politics trump science and sense.

Newspaper: The Obama Administration's Big Oil Lie

Editorial: The Administration's Big Oil Lie - Investors.com

Social Security Millionaires

We keep hearing about how Social Security is going bankrupt and how Medicare is draining the federal budget, but here's an interesting perspective on the government's two biggest entitlement programs from John Cogan, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and a professor of public policy at Stanford University.

From an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal:
Typical retired couples will collect $1 million or more in Social Security and Medicare. This is more than they paid in, and the cost will fall on today's workers.

The existence of so many million-dollar couples is not the result of elected officials carefully weighing the needs of senior citizens against the financial ability of younger workers to meet these needs. Rather, it is the result of decades of separate legislative actions by both political parties to liberalize retirement and health-care benefits, the sum total of which no one has bothered to calculate.

Social Security and Medicare were the result of natural human impulses to create safety-net programs to prevent poverty in old age and to help needy senior citizens with their medical bills. But the programs are flawed.

Wire service shills for Obama re-election

You know The New York Times, The Washington Post, and ABC, CBS and NBC are run by liberals for liberals, but The Associated Press provides national news coverage for every newspaper, radio and television station and online website in the country.

When the AP openly campaigns for Barack Obama, our democracy is in serious trouble.

Here's the latest example of how the wire service is working on behalf of candidate Obama by conducting a skewed poll to make Obama look better.

Newspaper: Soaring Spending Spurs Deficits



Investor's Business Daily cuts through the spin and gives a fresh perspective on the federal government's biggest problem: Spending money it doesn't have.

From an article by IBD's John Merline:
And the Bush tax cuts aren't to blame for the massive fiscal hole that opened up over the past three years. That was partly due to the unavoidable recession-caused drop in revenues. But the big driver was the massive increase in federal spending, which reached an astonishing 25% of GDP between 2009 and 2011.

In fact, according to IBD's analysis, even if Clinton-era tax rates had remained in effect during the recession — an unrealistic assumption — the country still would have added more than $1.5 trillion in debt because of all that extra spending.

And even with Clinton-era rates in effect over the next decade (higher than even Obama proposes), the U.S. would still be more than $6 trillion deeper in debt, based on current spending projections.

Budget forecasts also make it clear that the debt monster cannot be slayed without taking on so-called entitlement programs like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. All the spending growth relative to GDP over the next decade comes from entitlements, and by 2030 those three programs will eat up more than 17% of the economy.

But Obama's debt plan leaves the programs largely untouched. And while the plan by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., tackles Medicare and Medicaid spending, it doesn't address Social Security.

Pennsylvania officials announced today that the average homeowner will see a $200 reduction in their school property taxes this year from the state's gambling revenues.

That's a far cry from the "substantial" property tax relief former Gov. Ed Rendell promised when he signed the bill in 2004 to legalize casino gaming in Pennsylvania.

Santorum on nation's rising unemployment rate:

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum issued the following statement regarding release of monthly employment data:
"After two-and-a-half years of President Obama's failed big government agenda, we learned today that unemployment is again on the rise - now at an unacceptable 9%. Rather than continuing down the failed path of intrusive stimulus and mandates that have done nothing but explode our deficit, we need to reduce the tax and regulatory burdens that are hindering individual freedom, and allow the American entrepreneur to flourish on their own merits rather than having the government pick and choose who wins and who loses. That is the tried and true prescription for economic growth, and it is time for the President to believe in the American people again."

President Obama's allies attribute the bungled "narrative" (their word, not mine) to the "Fog of War." But each passing day -- and each new set of hapless revisions -- shows that what really ails the administration is the Fog of Fog.

From CBS News:
Obama's "approval on handling of the economy fell to 34 percent, down 4 points from two weeks ago and the lowest level of his presidency. Fifty-five percent disapprove."

Liberal media has already declared Obama winner of 2012 election

It took less than 24 hours after the death of Osama Bin Laden for the liberal media to politicize the military action that killed the terrorist leaders.

CNN and MSNBC, as well as the three networks, couldn't resist proclaiming the re-election of Barack Obama to a second term thanks to the handiwork of the Navy Seals.

But we might still want to hold an election in 2012 despite the left-wing media anointing Obama as president-for-life.

George H.W. Bush enjoyed a 90% approval rating after the Gulf War, but he lost his bid for re-election to Bill Clinton because of the failing economy and breaking his "Read My Lips: No New Taxes" pledge.

The economy is in far worse shape thanks to Obama's incompetence and when the euphoria of Osama Bin Laden's death fades, Americans will still be paying $50 every time they fill up their gas tanks, millions will still be out of work and inflation will crush the middle class.

Statement of George W. Bush on the death of Osama bin Laden:
Earlier this evening, President Obama called to inform me that American forces killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of the al Qaeda network that attacked America on September 11, 2001. I congratulated him and the men and women of our military and intelligence communities who devoted their lives to this mission. They have our everlasting gratitude. This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done.
