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
