Schwank Vs. Medaglia in special election for PA Senate seat
What I know about Larry Medaglia Jr., the Republican candidate in the special election for the 11th state Senate seat in Berks County: The Berks County Register of Wills office is more efficient thanks to reforms Medaglia has instituted, saving taxpayers money.
What I know about Judy Schwank, the Democratic candidate: When she was chairwoman of the Berks County Commissioners four years ago, she was the deciding vote for a 34% property tax hike for Berks County homeowners and businesses.
The race is basically a fiscal conservative vs. a tax-and-spend liberal.
The election to fill the unexpired term of the late Sen. Mike O'Pake will be held Tuesday, March 15.Schwank Vs. Medaglia in special election - Boyertown Area Times - Berks-Mont News

This fix is simple. It doesn't cost anything except leadership to enact safe driving laws.
Pennsylvanians deserve better than laws that fail.

Berks County Register of Wills Larry J. Medaglia Jr. is the Republican choice to run for the unexpired state Senate term of the late Sen. Mike O'Pake.
The special election is scheduled for March 15 and should be the best chance Republicans have of taking the seat held by O'Pake for nearly 40 years.
Medaglia, of West Reading, faces former county commissioner Judith A. Schwank, who is the Democratic Party's pick.
While well-known, Schwank does have one big drawback. She voted to raise county property taxes by 30 percent when she served as a commissioner, something Berks County residents won't soon forget.Berks Republicans tab Medaglia for O'Pake seat - pottsmerc.com

A road map to rebuild Pennsylvania
After eight disastrous years under Democratic Gov. Ed Rendell, Pennsylvania is is serious trouble.
But there is hope. Rendell is gone. Republican Tom Corbett will be sworn in today as the state's new governor.
With so many problems facing Gov. Corbett, where to begin?
The Commonwealth Foundation, an independent, non-partisan, free-market public policy think tank, has come up with a road map to help rebuild Pennsylvania's economic vitality, offering 80 concrete recommendations to make needed reforms to various state programs and agencies.
From the introduction to the report:
Pennsylvania's newly-elected governor and the 2011-12 General Assembly will face a host of challenges created by the previous governor bent on a tax-borrow-spend-and-control mentality that has driven the commonwealth into a potential $5 billion budget deficit. These fiscal challenges also include an education system with a wide achievement gap for students and parents demanding more options for their children, a recession that has led to the highest unemployment rate in 30 years, a public that has lost faith in its leaders and economic growth that has trailed the rest of the nation for decades.
Pennsylvania must undergo a rapid transformation to reverse the poor policy decisions that have eroded economic freedoms and brought the state to its present condition. To provide a road map for success in this critical endeavor, the Commonwealth Foundation has compiled a list of 80 policy recommendations for Gov. Corbett and state legislators to help lead a Pennsylvania comeback.

Obama then and now
Sen. Barack Obama on the Senate floor in 2006:
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government can't pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance the government's reckless fiscal policies."
President Barack Obama, after running up the national debt by more than $3 trillion in just two years to a record $14 trillion, now wants Congress to raise the debt ceiling limit ... so he can keep spending money we don't have.
And has anyone in the mainstream media pointed out Obama's hypocrisy? Nope. They're too busy trying to blame Sarah Palin for something ... anything.

Moving out of Pennsylvania
Once again, more people moved out of Pennsylvania than moved in, according to the 2010 United Van Lines Migration Study.
The company has been tracking state-by-state migration patterns for the past 34 years.
Pennsylvania, with high property taxes and a poor business climate, is one of nine states designated with the "High Outbound" label.
Neighboring New Jersey, home of the highest property taxes in the nation, topped the annual survey.
The District of Columbia was the top destination in the United States for the third consecutive year, the survey says. (Must be all those government workers Obama has hired.) Among states, Oregon and North Carolina were listed as "High Inbound" on the survey.
From the United Van Lines survey:
New Jersey (62.5%) claimed the top spot on the high-outbound traffic list. Also in the North East, New Hampshire (55.6%) had the seventh highest out-bound traffic.
The Great Lake region continued to have the highest out-bound traffic levels in the nation, with four of the region’s states experiencing high outbound traffic. Michigan (62%), which was the top outbound state from 2006-2009, fell to No. 2 in 2010. Illinois (57.3%), Ohio (55.6%) and Pennsylvania (55.4%) also experienced high out-bound traffic.
Missouri (60.1%) ranks No. 3 among states with high outbound traffic. 2010 is the first year since 2002 Missouri has not appeared in the balanced category. North Dakota (60.8%) and Kansas (56.6%) also experienced high-outbound traffic in 2010.

A good week for anyone named Aichele
Pennsylvania Gov.-elect Tom Corbett announced Wednesday his general counsel will be Stephen S. Aichele, chairman and past managing partner of the Philadelphia law firm Saul Ewing.
The nomination of Stephen Aichele means Pennsylvania will soon be employing two members of the Aichele family, prominent Republicans from Chester County.
On Monday, Corbett selected Aichele's wife, Carol, a Chester County commissioner, as his choice for Pennsylvania's Secretary of the Commonwealth.
Pennsylvania cabinet members earn $142,310 a year.
The state's Office of General Counsel, which Stephen Aichele will oversee, is the largest of the state's legal enterprises, employing approximately 500 attorneys who represent the governor and 32 executive and independent agencies, according to reporter Michael P. Rellahan.
Secretary of the Commonwealth, which Carol Aichele will supervise, is responsible for overseeing the state's election system and monitoring 800,000 licensed business and health professionals.

Columnist: The charlatan's response
George F. Will exposes the political opportunists on the far left who attempted to use the Arizona shooting tragedy to promote their own agendas.
From his latest column:
Three days before Tucson, Howard Dean explained that the tea party movement is "the last gasp of the generation that has trouble with diversity." Rising to the challenge of lowering his reputation and the tone of public discourse, Dean smeared tea partiers as racists: They oppose Obama's agenda, Obama is African-American, ergo ...
Let us hope that Dean is the last gasp of the generation of liberals whose default position in any argument is to indict opponents as racists. This McCarthyism of the left — devoid of intellectual content, unsupported by data — is a mental tic, not an idea but a tactic for avoiding engagement with ideas. It expresses limitless contempt for the American people, who have reciprocated by reducing liberalism to its current characteristics of electoral weakness and bad sociology.

Newspaper: Media exploit mental illness for political gain
From a terrific editorial in The Wall Street Journal about the liberal media's reprehensible attempts to link a crazed gunman with the conservative movement.
From the editorial:
On all available evidence, Jared Lee Loughner is a mentally disturbed man who targeted Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and anyone near her in Tucson on Saturday because she was prominent and they were tragically accessible. He joins Sirhan Sirhan, John Hinckley Jr. and many others whose derangement led them to horrible acts of violence. Whatever confused political motives he expressed seem merely to be part of the maelstrom of his mental sickness.
In a better world, no one would attempt to exploit his madness for political gain. We would instead focus on the contributions of Ms. Giffords, by all accounts a laudable public servant. We would celebrate the lives of the other victims, and we would praise the survivors who intervened to tackle Mr. Loughner and disarm him before he could kill others—like 74-year-old retiree Bill Badger, who was grazed in the head by a bullet before helping to restrain the shooter.
But the shooting news had barely hit the wires on Saturday before the media's instant psychoanalysis put the American body politic on the couch instead of Mr. Loughner. "Bloodshed Puts New Focus on Vitriol in Politics," declared a story in the New York Times, which focused primarily on the tea party and Sarah Palin in the context of mass murder. The story even hauled in opposition to health-care reform.

Liberal media has egg on its face - again
State Rep. Kate Harper enters race for Montco commissioner
State Rep. Kate Harper of Lower Gwynedd announced over the weekend she will seek the Republican endorsement for Montgomery County Commissioner.
Harper, a lifelong Montgomery County resident, is a member of the Pennsylvania General Assembly, representing the 61st House District.
It comes down to a numbers game for Harper. She is currently one of 203 House members in Harrisburg and although Republicans will hold the majority in the House over the next two years, Harper is not part of the GOP leadership.
Montgomery County has just three elected commissioners running one of the largest government operations in the state.
From a press release announcing her candidacy:
"These are challenging times and we need to search for creative solutions as we meet the challenges Montgomery County is facing in the coming years," Harper said. "I believe that as state representative I have demonstrated that I can build a consensus for even the thorniest issues and move forward - and I will bring that experience with me to the courthouse and work as team with whomever the taxpayers pick to manage Montgomery County.
Harper has an impressive resume.
Her political and professional experience includes 13 years as a Lower Gwynedd Township supervisor and six years on the Montgomery County Planning Commission.
She is a partner in the Fort Washington-based law firm Timoney Knox, LLP with a practice focusing on municipal law, real estate and civil litigation. She has also served as solicitor or special counsel to numerous municipal bodies throughout Montgomery County.
And then there's her 10 years of service in the Pennsylvania Legislature.
"Serving in the House of Representatives has been one of the best experiences of my life and I believe I can accomplish even more for the taxpayers in the role of county commissioner," said Harper. "But Montgomery County, like the rest of the Commonwealth, is facing unprecedented tough times and we need a common sense approach to getting back on track. And that means new leadership."
Three other Republicans - former Lower Merion School Board member Jill Govberg, Lower Merion Township Supervisor Jenny Brown and Montgomery County Jury Commissioner Marie N. Cavanaugh - have already announced their candidacy for Montgomery County commissioner.
And incumbent Republican Commissioner Bruce L. Castor Jr. is expected to announced plans for re-election soon.

Rendell regrets supporting pay raise
It took five years to sink into his thick skull, but lame-duck Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell has finally admitted he screwed up in supporting the infamous middle-of-the-night pay raise for lawmakers and other politicians in 2005.
From a story by Brad Bumsted in The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:
Gov. Ed Rendell said today his one regret during his eight-year tenure was that he agreed to sign the 2005 legislative pay raise, which hiked lawmakers' pay by 16 to 34 percent.
He said he agreed to sign it after opposing it a year before because he was told by legislative leaders he'd get nothing on his agenda approved during his remaining years in office.
"The pay raise and the way it was structured was untenable," Rendell said at a news conference to talk about his tenure as governor. He leaves office Jan. 18 when Republican Gov.-elect Tom Corbett is sworn in. Rendell was elected in 2002 and re-elected in 2006.
Most of the legislative leaders who hatched the pay raise scheme have been ousted or forced into early retirement in the past five years. The list includes John Perzel, Chip Brightbill, Robert Jubelirer, Mike Veon and Vince Fumo.
Also gone is former Pennsylvania Supreme Court Chief Justice Ralph Cappy, who also pushed for the pay raise. Cappy retired in 2007 instead of facing the voters in a retention election. The only person who escaped the wrath of voters was "Teflon" Ed Rendell.

Final Tab for Pelosi's Speakership: $5.34 Trillion in New Debt
From Terence Jeffrey, writing at CNSNews.com on the disastrous four-year tenure of Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House:
In the 1,461 days that Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) served as speaker of the House, the national debt increased by a total of $5.343 trillion ($5,343,452,800,321.37) or $3.66 billion per day ($3.657,394,113.84), according to official debt numbers published by the U.S. Treasury.Final Tab for Pelosi's Speakership: $5.34 Trillion in New Debt — Or $3.66 Billion Per Day | CNSnews.com
Pelosi was the 52nd speaker of the House. During her tenure, she amassed more debt than the first 49 speakers combined.
The total national debt did not climb above $5.343 trillion (the amount amassed during Pelosi’s four years as speaker) until Feb. 26, 1997, when Rep. Newt Gingrich (R.-Ga.) was serving as the nation’s 50th House speaker.

National Debt Tops $14 Trillion
You may not have noticed it during the busy holiday rush, but the U.S. national debt has topped $14 trillion under Barack Obama.
It now stands at $14,003,283,000 - and rising by the second. Broken down by population, every man, woman and child in the United States owes $45,000.
The interest alone on the national debt has now topped $3.5 trillion.
Barack Obama and Congressional Democrats have increased the national debt by more than $3 trillion in just two years.
The debt was $10.6 trillion when Obama took office in January 2009.
And for the Kool-Aid drinkers out there who can't accept the fact that Obama has plunged the nation into uncharted debt territory, consider that it took George W. Bush eight full years to increase the debt by $4.9 trillion.
Left unchecked, Obama is on pace to push the debt to $16.5 trillion in 2012 (his last year in office) or $6 trillion more than the day he was sworn in.
