6.2M have lost health coverage under Obamacare so far


 Obama claims 4 million have signed up for Obamacare (but he's been known to lie). On the other hand, we know more than 6.2 million Americans have lost their health insurance coverage under Obamacare. Even low-information Obama voters should be able to do the math.

Rein in the IRS by de-clubbing the thugs

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review on IRS abuses under Obama: Without a “smidgen of corruption” — at least in the alternate universe of President Obama — the IRS is moving ahead with a proposal that will bury tens of thousands of nonprofits in new paperwork. Consider it the Obama administration's “salute” to the Supreme Court's 2010 Citizens United verdict on political speech and campaign funding.

This is what's wrong with Congress. A Congressional seat from Michigan has been held by a member of the Dingell family since 1933. And after 58 years in office, 87-year-old John Dingell Jr. is finally retiring, only to have his wife run for the same seat - keeping it in the family for another 20-30 years. This is not what the Founding Fathers had in mind.

Al Gore weighs in on Pa. governor's race

Here's a case where an endorsement could end up costing the candidate votes.

Global Warming charlatan Al Gore wants Pennsylvania residents to elect Democrat Katie McGinty as governor.

McGinty is one of eight Democrats seeking their party's nomination to run against incumbent Republican Gov. Tom Corbett.

Her ties to Gore go back to the 1980s. McGinty was environmental adviser to Gore's unsuccessful 2000 presidential campaign. Before that, McGinty spent a decade working in Washington, D.C., both in Gore’s Senate office, which she joined in 1989, and for the Clinton White House, most notably as chairwoman of the White House Council on Environmental Quality, according to The Associated Press.

My advice to McGinty: I wouldn't brag too much about Gore's endorsement, especially as Pennsylvania residents are still digging out from all this global warming.

Chester County GOP Endorses Ryan Costello for Congress

No surprise here. Chester County's favorite son, Ryan Costello, has been endorsed by the Chester County Republican Committee in his bid for Pennsylvania's 6th Congressional District seat.

Costello, currently chairman of the Chester County Board of Commissioners, is attempting to succeed fellow Republican Jim Gerlach (also a Chester County resident.)

Gerlach, who first won the 6th District seat in 2002, announced earlier this year that he will not see re-election.

In addition to his duties as county commissioner, Costello is an attorney in Phoenixville, Pa.

This is a press release issued Wednesday night:
WEST CHESTER, PA – Ryan Costello received the formal endorsement of the Republican Committee of Chester County in his campaign for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 6th Congressional following a vote this evening by rank and file members of the party at a nominating convention in West Chester.  Costello currently serves as Chairman of the Chester County Board of Commissioners.

"It is an honor to have the endorsement and support of the committee people of Chester County," said Costello.  "As a Member of Congress, I will work to keep taxes low, control government spending, and promote continued economic growth in our region. We need to get our country back on track and restore a national sense of optimism about the future direction of America.  That means we need elected officials who are going to put the interests of the American people first.

"I appreciate the confidence that the committee people have placed in me, and I want to especially thank Chairman Val DiGiorgio for his leadership of the committee." said Costello. "Just as important, I appreciate all of the hard work they do year in year out to help communicate the Republican ideals of fiscal responsibility and limited government to voters.  Their support and dedication is going to be a key factor in the weeks and months to come as this campaign heats up."
Costello is the only Republican seeking the Republican nod in the 6th Congressional District. Two Democrats have also announced.Costello clearly has the advantage to succeed Gerlach because he can count on the Chester County vote and won't have to wage a primary fight.

For federal employees, office closed 25% of fiscal year, so far

Next time somebody tells you how hard government workers have it, you can shove this fact in their face:

Between snow days, official holidays and the government shutdown it is
no surprise that federal workers haven’t been too stressed lately. In
total, federal offices have been closed either in whole or in part for
27 out of the last 105 weekdays. Delayed openings, unscheduled leave and
telework days were in effect for 6 of those days.

Dick Morris on Obama's latest scheme to suppress our fundamental right to freedom of the press:
The Federal Communications Commission is about to launch a direct assault on the freedom of the media to cover news as it chooses. The program, called the Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs, involves requesting information from all radio and TV stations, as well as newspapers, about how they cover news, who decides what gets covered, and what criteria they use in the decision. The FCC will also conduct a "content analysis" of one week's coverage to decide whether each of eight "critical" categories of news is being given adequate attention

Michael Barone: The roots of American liberalism are not compassion, but snobbery

From Michael Barone's latest column:
The roots of American liberalism are not compassion, but snobbery. That’s the thesis of Fred Siegel’s revealing new book, “The Revolt Against the Masses: How Liberalism Has Undermined the Middle Class.”

The standard account from liberal historians over the years, and more recently in bestsellers by Glenn Beck, is a linear story: Government expansion starts with the Progressives of a hundred years ago, accelerates through the New Deal and the Great Society, and is followed up by the Obama stimulus and Obamacare.

US Rep. Joe Pitts on latest Obamacare delay

From Congressman Joe Pitt's office:  Monday afternoon, the Obama administration announced a further delay of the employer mandate to purchase insurance contained in Obamacare.

Businesses with between 50 and 99 employees will not be required to provide insurance until January 2016. The rules also require larger businesses to cover only some of their employees by the January 2015 deadline. The Affordable Care Act required businesses with more than 50 full time employees to provide health care by January 1, 2014. The individual mandate to purchase insurance goes into effect this year

Congressman Pitts, who represents Pennsylvania's 16th Congressional District, had this to say: 
"Here we go again. Obamacare just keeps changing to meet the political needs of this administration. There’s no legal authority for further delay and no authority to create another category of employers. This just adds to the legal chaos that is making it hard for employers to grow their business and expand hiring."

No gubernatorial candidate gets endorsement from Pa. Democratic Party

Some 300 top Democratic Party officials gathered in Hershey to consider endorsing one of the 7 candidates seeking the party's nomination for Pennsylvania governor, but none of the candidates could get the required two-thirds majority to win the endorsement. That means the candidates will have to slug it out until the May primary, spending campaign money to differentiate themselves from the herd, which won't be so easy to do considering they're all tax-and-spend liberals.

Meanwhile, incumbent Republican Gov. Tom Corbet can concentrate his resources on the November General Election.

Obama Lies ... And That's The Truth


Orthodox Church Canonizes First Saints in More Than 50 Years

Who says there aren't saints living among us?

Some exciting news from His All Holiness Bartholomew, Archbishop of Constantinople, New Rome and Ecumenical Patriarch, leader of the world's 300 million Orthodox Christians: The Orthodox Church has recognized its first new saints in more than 50 years - Hieromonks Porphyrios Kafsokalyvitis and Meletios of Ypseni (Rhodes).

We tend to think of saints as people who lived thousands of years ago.

Porphyrios Kafsokalyvitis lived from 1906 to 1991. Meletios of Ypseni was born at the end of the 18th Century.

They are the first saints to be canonized by the Orthodox Church since St. Nektarios of Aegina in 1961.

You can read more about the new saints in the latest edition of the Orthodox Observer.

Sen. Pat Toomey: CBO Report on Obamacare 'Devastating'

U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) released the following statement about the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office report that says the President's health care law will reduce the number of full-time workers by about 2.5 million:                  
"Like many Pennsylvanians, I believe that creating more jobs and growing the economy should be one of our top priorities in Washington. Unfortunately, many of the policies that have been enacted by this Administration - especially Obamacare - are taking us in the opposite direction.

"Today, nonpartisan CBO has reported that Obamacare will cost millions of jobs and slow economic growth. This report should be big news but, sadly, these results are as predictable as they are devastating.

"Since I came to the Senate in 2011, business owners and individuals have warned me that onerous Obamacare mandates will make health insurance policies unaffordable, force employers to shed jobs, while greatly limiting the availability of full-time work that offer families sustaining wages. This nonpartisan CBO report confirms that Pennsylvania cannot afford the severe economic consequences and job loss created by the President's health care law."
