Gerlach votes to reject Obama debt limit request

U.S. Rep. Jim Gerlach, who represents Pennsylvania's 6th Congressional District, issued the following statement on Monday night's vote by the House of Representatives to reject a request from President Obama to raise the debt limit to $16.7 trillion without any reduction in federal spending:
"When your national debt is $14.3 trillion, increasing the debt limit without demanding a change in Washington's spending habits would be irresponsible. This vote acknowledges that constituents in my district and across the country have said enough is enough. They want honest leadership and a responsible plan for substantial spending cuts. This legislation would have kept us on the unsustainable path toward deeper debt and unrestrained deficit spending.

After years of spending sprees, our $14.3 trillion national debt is as large as our entire economy. This huge debt burden rattles the confidence of small business owners and investors and extinguishes opportunity for current and future generations. The federal government is borrowing more than 40 cents of every dollar it spends right now. Tonight, we let everyone know Washington cannot get away with that kind of reckless spending and that Congress will resist any attempt to raise the debt limit without real solutions for controlling spending."
The bill to raise the debt limit (H.R. 1954) failed when just 97 members of the House voted for it while 318 members voted against it. The federal debt has risen by more than $3 trillion since Obama took office.

Rep. Quigley Supports House Budget

Rep. Tom Quigley (R-Montgomery) released the following statement regarding his support of the $27.3 billion General Fund budget for 2011-12 passed today by the Pennsylvania House of Representatives:
"I am very pleased that we are on schedule to pass a punctual and balanced budget, which will meet the Commonwealth’s responsibilities and sensibly allocate our limited resources. Our economy is still in a state of recovery and we have no reserve funds, so it is important for us to budget with caution and restraint. This budget proposal is reflective of the revenue we have on hand now and what we can realistically expect to collect next year.

"One aspect of this budget I am particularly supportive of is its restoration of some of the funds cut from basic and higher education. We were able to achieve this by rooting out fraud and waste in our welfare system. I believe this approach is in line with the priorities of most Pennsylvanians and appropriately represents the concerns of our citizens. Schools, however, must continue to seek out cost reductions, and the state must constantly look to streamline programs and increase efficiencies.

"This vote does not signify the end of the budget process. The legislation will now go before the Senate for its revisions, and negotiations will be ongoing. The final budget bill could still look very different, but I am hopeful it will be a plan that sets Pennsylvania back on the path to prosperity."
The House Republican budget plan was approved 109-92, primarily along party lines. House Bill 1485 now moves to the Senate for consideration.

Eileen Behr wins nod for Montco Sheriff

The biggest contest in Montgomery County Tuesday was the race for the Republican nomination for Sheriff.

The endorsed candidate, Eileen Whalon Behr, who was nominated as interim sheriff by Gov. Tom Corbett, faced a challenge from Robert J. Durante, another law enforcement veteran.

In this case, the party backing proved decisive.

Behr, 54, of Lafayette Hill, who recently retired as Whitemarsh police chief, finished with 21,493 votes while Durante, 58, of Norristown, trailed with 9,839 votes with 100 percent of precincts reporting, according to unofficial election results.

Behr, who has been in law enforcement for more than 30 years, is the heavy favorite to become the first female elected sheriff in Montgomery County history.

She was not taking anything for granted Tuesday when she spoke to Mercury reporter Carl Hessler Jr.

"It's only step one. We still have a long way to go to November," Behr said from a celebration at Montgomery County Republican headquarters. "I'm very grateful for all the people who came out to support me."

Behr's opponent in the November general election will be Democrat William A. Holt Jr., 65, of Abington, a former detective sergeant with the Abington Police Department.

The winner of the November contest will succeed longtime Sheriff John P. Durante, who died last year from a heart attack at age 60. The late sheriff is no relation to Robert J. Durante.

Turnout was low, with about 13 percent of Montgomery County voters going to the polls for the primary election.

Obamacare = Corruption

Liberal elites like Nancy Pelosi get the benefits while the American taxpayer gets the shaft. It's the Obama way.

From The Daily Caller:
Of the 204 new Obamacare waivers President Barack Obama's administration approved in April, 38 are for fancy eateries, hip nightclubs and decadent hotels in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's Northern California district.

That's in addition to the 27 new waivers for health care or drug companies and the 31 new union waivers Obama's Department of Health and Human Services approved.

Pelosi's district secured almost 20 percent of the latest issuance of waivers nationwide, and the companies that won them didn’t have much in common with companies throughout the rest of the country that have received Obamacare waivers.

Other common waiver recipients were labor union chapters, large corporations, financial firms and local governments. But Pelosi's district's waivers are the first major examples of luxurious, gourmet restaurants and hotels getting a year-long pass from Obamacare.

Sen. Pat Toomey on reaching debt limit

As the federal government hit its debt limit of $14.294 trillion today, U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) is calling on the Obama Administration to "get serious about cutting spending, reducing our deficits and putting our country on a fiscally responsible path."

From a Toomey press release:
"Instead of offering ideas for cutting spending and enacting serious spending reforms, the administration has been engaging in scare tactics in an attempt to convince Congress to raise the debt limit without significant conditions attached. But the most irresponsible thing we can do is simply kick the can down the road and continue with business in usual in Washington. I have introduced legislation to make sure the United States will not default on our national debt. If the administration was truly concerned about defaulting on our debt, it would support the Full Faith and Credit Act which prioritizes paying the interest on our debt to avoid default. Now is the time for the administration and Congress to put aside the hyperbole and have an adult conversation about putting our country on a sustainable fiscal path."

The Gut Stops Here

Social Security Millionaires

We keep hearing about how Social Security is going bankrupt and how Medicare is draining the federal budget, but here's an interesting perspective on the government's two biggest entitlement programs from John Cogan, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and a professor of public policy at Stanford University.

From an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal:
Typical retired couples will collect $1 million or more in Social Security and Medicare. This is more than they paid in, and the cost will fall on today's workers.

The existence of so many million-dollar couples is not the result of elected officials carefully weighing the needs of senior citizens against the financial ability of younger workers to meet these needs. Rather, it is the result of decades of separate legislative actions by both political parties to liberalize retirement and health-care benefits, the sum total of which no one has bothered to calculate.

Social Security and Medicare were the result of natural human impulses to create safety-net programs to prevent poverty in old age and to help needy senior citizens with their medical bills. But the programs are flawed.

Newspaper: Soaring Spending Spurs Deficits

Investor's Business Daily cuts through the spin and gives a fresh perspective on the federal government's biggest problem: Spending money it doesn't have.

From an article by IBD's John Merline:
And the Bush tax cuts aren't to blame for the massive fiscal hole that opened up over the past three years. That was partly due to the unavoidable recession-caused drop in revenues. But the big driver was the massive increase in federal spending, which reached an astonishing 25% of GDP between 2009 and 2011.

In fact, according to IBD's analysis, even if Clinton-era tax rates had remained in effect during the recession — an unrealistic assumption — the country still would have added more than $1.5 trillion in debt because of all that extra spending.

And even with Clinton-era rates in effect over the next decade (higher than even Obama proposes), the U.S. would still be more than $6 trillion deeper in debt, based on current spending projections.

Budget forecasts also make it clear that the debt monster cannot be slayed without taking on so-called entitlement programs like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. All the spending growth relative to GDP over the next decade comes from entitlements, and by 2030 those three programs will eat up more than 17% of the economy.

But Obama's debt plan leaves the programs largely untouched. And while the plan by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., tackles Medicare and Medicaid spending, it doesn't address Social Security.

Liberal media declares Obama winner of 2012 election

It took less than 24 hours after the death of Osama Bin Laden for the liberal media to politicize the military action that killed the terrorist leaders.

CNN and MSNBC, as well as the three networks, couldn't resist proclaiming the re-election of Barack Obama to a second term thanks to the handiwork of the Navy Seals.

But we might still want to hold an election in 2012 despite the left-wing media anointing Obama as president-for-life.

George H.W. Bush enjoyed a 90% approval rating after the Gulf War, but he lost his bid for re-election to Bill Clinton because of the failing economy and breaking his "Read My Lips: No New Taxes" pledge.

The economy is in far worse shape thanks to Obama's incompetence and when the euphoria of Osama Bin Laden's death fades, Americans will still be paying $50 every time they fill up their gas tanks, millions will still be out of work and inflation will crush the middle class.

I congratulated him and the men and women of our military and intelligence communities who devoted their lives to this mission. They have our everlasting gratitude. This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done.
