The Consent of the Consumer

Sun, 2014-07-13 08:00

Capitalism depends on the consent by the consumer unless the administrative Statist/socialist bureaucrats intervene in the private economy.

The PUC is proving it is not the consumer’s friend by obstructing consumer choice.

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission sides with entrenched incumbent business to deny consumer’s choice and an innovative company the opportunity to compete on a level playing field.

Big Business Immigration and Cheap Labor: Union’s E-Verify

Sun, 2014-07-13 07:00

National Homebuilders Association of America makes the case for more immigrant labor, in effect, Open Borders and Amnesty. It should not surprise anyone that Big Business, like the National Association of Homebuilders, is pushing for Amnesty, another word for “cheap labor”.  Securing the southern border is not a priority. (Oddly, though, the northern border is secure).

We have been through this before beginning with Reagan’s signing of Simpson-Mazzoli Immigration Reform Act of 1986.  Bipartisan Promises were made by the government: those promises were not kept.

 

 

Pennsylvania’s Bipartisan  Union supported       

Unions oppose “cheap labor” and I have to think were it not for the Union opposition, we would be flooded with illegals.  

   

Pennsylvania passed an E-Verify law sponsored by BucksCo Democrat Galloway in 2012.  General Act 127 of 2012  The Republican-controlled Pennsylvania House 29 June 2012  vote was near unanimous with the 6 NAY votes coming from Democrats (2 LVE). The Pennsylvania Senate voted, likewise, with near unanimity with 6 NAY votes, 6 Democrats and 1 Republican, Lloyd Smucker.( 1 vacancy in Senate).  Note that the Republican party of Pennsylvania has been infiltrated by Unions who have enough power to veto  legislation. Sen. Smucker is from York and close to the Associated Builders and Contractors of Pennsylvania. 

Republican Governor signed the union friendly law into effect on 5 July 2014.

This is a good law. It helps enforce the law.

Corbett Republicans Have Voted to Increase Debt by $6.3 Bbillion Dollars

Mon, 2014-06-23 13:29

All are complicit in enacting legislation to increase debt.

In the last three years, the Republican General Assembly and the Republican Governor have increased debt by $6,300,000,000 SIX BILLION THREE HUNDRED MILLION. The Republican General Assembly and the Republican Governor are NOT the Forgotten Taxpayer’s friend. Three Capital Budget Acts, Act 130 of 2011 Act 193 of 2012 and Act 69 of 2013, increased Pennsylvanian’s debt burden.  The debt has not been incurred but why vote to increase debt if they don’t intend to increase debt? 

Debt is deferred taxation

Dave Reed voted $2.4 Bbillion ($2.400,000,000) Tax Increase – the biggest gas, fuel and license tax in Pennsylania history

Wed, 2014-06-11 09:50

Dave Reed  is not  The Forgotten Taxpayer’s Friend voted for Corbett’s $2.4 Bbillion dollar Tax Increase to fix Pennsylvania’s obvious crumbling roads and falling bridges.  

  House Vote Act 89 of 2013 (HB1060) 21 November 2013  Dave Reed  voted YEA against Liberty, Economic Freedom and the Forgotten Taxpayer.

Just like a Democrat, Dave Reed votes for More spending and More Taxes (and more debt).

  Republican (?) Tom Corbett and uber Democrat Ed Rendell on Capitol steps rally for more spending and more taxes.

Republican (?) Tom Corbett and Ed Rendell joined together to lobby for more spending and more taxes. Corbett Republicans voted  voted YEA to moretaxes and fees.

  Big Business, Big Labor, Left Wing Environmentalists  and Big Government join together  to spend more and tax more. Cui bono? To whose benefit?   Not The Forgotten Taxpayers.

 

 Tom Corbett and Obama Democratic Comcast David L. Cohen funds Tom Corbett and the GOP brags about it????
Tom Corbett is financed by Rendell Comcast Democrats brags the State GOP reprinting Huffington Post article 

Why would any Reform Republican, Tea Party Republican, 912 Republican or any Republican not profiting from politics, that is, any Republican who is not a Hack, want to support or vote for the RINOs who have repeatedly sold us out?

Three Tax Increases according Grover Norquist’s American’s For Tax Reform, Tom Corbett has violated is No New Taxes No New Fees Pledge THREE TIMES.

Tom Corbett made an unequivocal promise of “no new taxes; no new fees” and, cynically, Tom Corbett broke that promise, three times

CorbettCare proposed Medicaid Expansion is ObamaCare with tweaks.
