Tea Party Group Urges 'No' Vote on PA Supreme Court Justices
The reason the group opposes Ron Castille and Max Baer is their failure to implement Voter ID in Pennsylvania. The Voter ID law was passed by both chambers of the Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Tom Corbett in 2012, but the Supreme Court put the law on hold for both the 2012 and 2013 election cycles while a lower court hears objections filed by Democrats and the ACLU.
Castille and Baer should face the price for interfering with the will of the people, argues the tea party group.
Here is a press release issued by the group:
The Independence Hall Tea Party PAC is urging a 'No' vote on retention of PA Supreme Court Justices Ron Castille (R) and Max Baer (D) in Tuesday's November 5, 2013 election due to their failure to uphold the Voter ID law enacted by the Pennsylvania Assembly and signed by Governor Tom Corbett (R).
"The Independence Hall Tea Party worked extremely hard to help get Voter ID passed--beginning in November 2010," said PAC President, Don Adams.
"We have contacted over 170 Tea Party and Patriot groups across Pennsylvania to ask that they join us in urging the rejection of Justices Ron Castille and Max Baer for their role in obstructing the implementation of the Voter ID law in both the 2012 and 2013 Pennsylvania Primary and General Elections," said PAC President, Don Adams.
According to Pennsylvania law, Chief Justice Ron Castille, age 69, is required to retire from the Supreme Court upon his 70th birthday.
"The PAC is urging voters to give both justices an early retirement for thwarting the will of the people and Pennsylvania law by refusing to implement Voter ID.
"Polls consistently show that Pennsylvanians favor Voter ID by overwhelming margins. A September 2012 Quinnipiac/NY Times/CBS Poll showed that 62% of Pennsylvanians approve the law, while 35% oppose.
Additionally, 99% of those interviewed stated that they possessed a state issued photo identification and 1% did not," said Adams.
"Despite these figures, the PA Supreme Court, with the votes of both Justices Castille and Baer, has seen fit to obstruct Voter ID implementation in four election cycles by twice remanding that a lower court review the law's merit, with specific stipulations of the high court, based on a questionable legal challenge.
"The PA Supreme Court did not even have the courage to rule on the law itself. Instead, it is hiding behind the rulings of lower court judges.
"This is completely unacceptable behavior and the voters of Pennsylvania will have a chance to say 'No' to the Justices who said 'No' to Voter ID."
"Undoubtedly, Justices Castille and Baer will spend a small fortune on the retention vote. We will be limited to word of mouth and free social media.
But since 2013 is a low turnout election year, and voters, in general, are not in a good mood, we hope to prevail.

Columnist: Obamacare was 'a lie from day one'
Doctors' Group Decries Obamacare 'Incompetence'
"Secretary Sebelius states that the Affordable Care Act, which can't produce a functional Web site, is going to fix the 'delivery system.' Once people get corralled into Obama-compliant health plans, doctors will be automatically made smarter, more efficient, and less costly. She herself must be Wonder Woman. One day, she says they really needed six years to do the Web site, then she claims it will be fixed in only six weeks!
"Can incompetence really be this gross? Or is the true objective being achieved? Do they really want more uninsured people, more Medicaid dependents, and the wreckage of both private insurance and private medicine?
"Obama’s supporters appear to think that there is no problem with breaking clear promises, like being able to keep your health insurance, if you can just change the meaning to 'you can't keep the insurance you like, but you'll be able to buy something we like for twice the cost.'
"If Obama can rewrite the law as he likes, why stop with delaying the employer mandate and forcing still more people into the individual mandate? Can he go all the way to single payer, all by himself?
"The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) filed suit today to challenge Obama's violation of the constitutional separation of powers by legislating from the White House."

Only 51,000 sign up for insurance through Healthcare.gov the first week
For 3 years, we've been hearing Obama and Democrats warn about the 30 million desperate Americans who needed health insurance. So how many people sign up for Obamacare during its first week? A measly 51,000.
What does that say about the Chicken Little Caucus?

Pa. lawmaker wants maximum speed raised to 70
In reality, most Pennsylvania drivers do at least 70 mph on most of the state's highways, so I'm not sure what the harm would be to raising the speed limit.
Also keep in mind that Scarnati represents one of the most rural legislative districts in Pennsylvania, one that has few police officers patrolling interstate highways, so I'm sure people are already doing a lot more than 70 mph.
On the other hand, is this really the most pressing issue facing Pennsylvania residents or is this another legislator looking for something to keep himself busy with instead of tackling real issues?
Today I have circulated a co-sponsorship memo for legislation I intend to introduce which would increase the maximum speed limit on Pennsylvania interstate highways and the Pennsylvania Turnpike from 65 to 70 miles per hour.Increasing Pennsylvania’s maximum speed limit on interstate highways and the PA Turnpike will allow for better traffic flow and provide for greater efficiency in the delivery of goods throughout the Commonwealth. Numerous other states have already taken the step to allow for traveling at a maximum speed of 70 MPH or more.Over the last two decades since Pennsylvania’s maximum speed limit was last set, our vehicles have become more technically efficient and safety standards have continued to increase. As we move forward with this measure a significant component of the legislation will focus on ensuring necessary traffic and engineering studies are completed prior to increasing the speed limit on any stretch of highway.

Thorns to PA AG Kathleen Kane for nepotism in her office
THORNS to state Attorney General Kathleen Kane for another example of nepotism in her office, this time involving her cousin as an executive assistant being paid $56,665 a year. Brad Bumsted of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported that Kane hired her cousin Colleen Tighe as executive assistant. A deputy said she was the most qualified for the job. In August, Kane’s office confirmed that her identical twin received a 19.65 percent pay raise in April to head the office’s Child Protection Unit. Ellen Granahan worked in the office before Kane arrived, under former Attorneys General Linda Kelly and Gov. Tom Corbett, who hired her. Hiring relatives is nothing new in government, but it troubles us nonetheless.
