Pa.'s biggest newspaper calls on AG Kathleen Kane to resign


From the editorial pages of The Philadelphia Inquirer, which never met a Democrat, including Kathleen Kane, it didn't endorse for office:
Pennsylvania's self-destructing attorney general, Kathleen Kane, should resign. This week alone, The Inquirer has reported that she disrupted a second political corruption case, while the Supreme Court upheld a probe into her dissemination of grand jury information that could yield criminal charges.
It's now clear that since her early days in office, Kane's attempts to protect legitimate law enforcement targets and smear rivals have been at odds with the public interest.

Don't Be Fooled: Gov. Wolf's Budget Will Cost You

 These days, April Fools' isn't the only day you have to be on guard for potential pranks. As we move through budget season in the state legislature, don't be tricked by phrases like "holistic budget" or "property tax relief."

In fact, under Gov. Tom Wolf's proposed budget, the last thing middle-class, working families and small businesses will feel is relief. What's really in Gov. Wolf's budget plan for Pennsylvania? Billions in new taxes and borrowing to support historic levels of government spending.

Last month, the governor presented his ideal state spending plan, a $33.8 billion budget that relies on major tax increases and increased borrowing. As proposed, Gov. Wolf's budget would spend state taxpayer dollars at unprecedented levels, and represents a 16 percent increase with $4.7 billion in new spending this year alone.

Just how much does he want to spend? If Gov. Wolf's plan is enacted, the Commonwealth will spend $92.6 million in state dollars every day. That equates to $3.9 million per hour, over $64,307 per minute or $1,071 per second.

To pay for this huge increase in government spending, Gov. Wolf is looking to you, the taxpayer. His plan would raise the Personal Income Tax (PIT) by 21 percent and increase and expand Sales and Use Tax revenues by over 40 percent for more state spending. The result? An outrageous, every-thing-in-the-kitchen-sink budget that is balanced on the backs of hard-working, middle-class families and small businesses which account for more than 95 percent of all employers in Pennsylvania.

In addition to raising existing taxes, Gov. Wolf is also proposing to effectively create 550 new taxes, many of which would negatively impact our most vulnerable citizens. Products and services that were not taxed before, like diapers, baby wipes, child care, personal hygiene products, veterinarian services, non-prescription drugs, caskets and burial vaults, home health care services and assisted living services, will now be taxed at 6.6 percent.

What will Pennsylvanians get in return? Gov. Wolf has promised his plan will provide much-needed property tax relief, but will it? Not likely. The governor's plan would raise $6.8 billion in taxes, but only put $3.7 billion toward property tax relief. As proposed, taxpayers in more than 400 of the state's 500 school districts would pay more in personal income and sales taxes than they would receive in property tax relief.

Additionally, the governor's distribution of wealth plan disproportionally benefits urban districts, which already receive the highest allocation of state education funding.

Taxpayers can see how their school district fares under the governor's budget at www.TaxpayersThatPay.com

Think about it: It took this Commonwealth 200 years to reach a budget of $20 billion. Eight years under infamous spender, Gov. Rendell brought us to $28 billion. Our new governor blows those numbers out of the water, looking to spend an $8 billion more in the next two years alone. Just as you struggle to live within your means to balance your household budget, we as state government must also live in reality.

As state representatives who promised to be good stewards of taxpayer dollars, we cannot support a budget that raises billions of dollars in new taxes but fails to address the state's well-known, impending pension crisis or rein in government spending. With our economy finally on the rebound, we need a budget that addresses government waste, fraud and abuse, continues to grow our economy and, most importantly, protects taxpayers.

This April Fools' Day, don't let a wolf pull the wool over your eyes with promises of "jobs that pay, schools that teach and government that works." The only guarantee that comes with Gov. Wolf's spending plan is that taxpayers will certainly pay.

Rep. Kerry Benninghoff is the Majority Policy Chairman, and Rep. Bryan Cutler is the Majority Whip of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. Both are Republicans.

Stop the Presses! A Republican Wins in Philadelphia!

It hasn't happened in a quarter-century.

Republican Martina White has won the special election to fill a vacant seat in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives from Philadelphia's 170th State House District.

The seat was held by Democrat Brandon Boyle, who resigned after he was elected to Congress. Registered Democrats outnumber Republicans 2-to-1 in this Northeast Philadelphia legislative district (which isn't as bad as the rest of Philadelphia, where Dems enjoy a 7-to-1 registered voter advantage.)

Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement:

"Congratulations to Martina White on becoming the first newly elected Republican to represent a Philadelphia-based State House District in twenty-five years," Gleason said. "Martina White's strong work ethic and background in finance helped Martina to earn the support of the voters the 170th State House District. Martina's roots in the Northeast, focus on Northeast Philadelphia's local issues and  diverse coalition of support will make her a terrific state Representative and member of the Republican Caucus.

"The Republican Party of Philadelphia has turned the corner with Representative-elect Martina White's victory today. The hard work of Republican Party of Philadelphia is paying off, and I am confident that tonight’s win will be the first of many victories to come for the Philly GOP.

"I want to congratulate Philadelphia GOP Chairman and State Representative John Taylor, Speaker of the House Mike Turzai, Majority Leader Dave Reed and all of the volunteers and supporters who helped to make Martina’s victory possible. I look forward to watching State Representative-elect White use her voice to make a difference in her District with the now 120 member Republican House majority.

"In the first election after the Democrats announced their plans to hold their 2016 National Convention in Philadelphia, Republicans have delivered a resounding welcome with a huge win."

Website exposes Pa. Gov. Wolf's property tax scheme

Republican state lawmakers want Pennsylvania residents to understand the property tax shift scheme Gov. Tom Wolf proposed in his 2015-16 budget. Wolf wants to increase the state income tax and state sales tax permanently in exchange for temporary tax relief for some school districts.

The House Majority Appropriations Committee on Monday launched a new website - www.TaxpayersThatPay.com - that provides details on how Pennsylvania taxpayers in each of the state's 500 school district would fare under Gov. Tom Wolf's proposed property tax shift plan.

"Despite what the governor has been saying, his property tax shift proposal would cost many taxpayers across the Commonwealth far more than it would provide in property tax relief," state Rep. James R. Santora (R-Delaware) said. "Once it's fully implemented, the governor's plan would raise more than $8 billion in new taxes, but only put $3.6 billion toward property tax relief."

Poll: Fox News the Most Trusted Source of News, MSNBC Dead Last

If you're getting your news from CNN or MSNBC, you're better off turning to the Cartoon Network or the Comedy Channel. A new poll by a prestigious university finds more Americans by far trust top-rated Fox News than all the other networks, including ABC, CBS, CNN and CNN. MSNBC finished dead last in the poll, just like it does in the ratings.

Here's the link to the poll results from the recent Quinnipiac University results showing Fox News way ahead of all the other networks in trustworthiness:

Gov. Wolf’s Crushing $4.6 Billion Tax Increase Largest in Pa History

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf is following the Barack Obama model on economics: Raise taxes
and spend more, increase debt and put off dealing with serious issues like pension reform.

We all know how well that worked out for Obama. We're in Year 6 of the Obama Recession.
