Citizen Mike has transformed into Corporate Mike after just one term in the Pennsylvania State Senate.

Mike do you really think repealing health insurance mandates that cover routine pap smears for women or immunizations for kids a difference, for who Mike ?

Next you want to let healthcare insurers off the hook when it comes to covering adopted children on their adopted parents personal healthcare plans.

Mike you made a differnce alright. Just not for the Citizens.

How about your unconstitutional state paycheck Mike ?

Women and Childrení s Healthcare is under a massive attack by Pa. State Senator Mike Folmer.

How would you feel about lifting current state laws that require healthcare insurers to cover services like childrens immunizations ?

How about allowing healthcare insurers off the hook when it comes to covering gynecological examinations and routine pap smears for women ?

What would you think if we start allowing healthcare insurers selling healthcare insurance in Pennsylvania the right to deny coverage to an adopted child even under a parents plan that is paid for 100% by his adopted parents ?

Why donít we just allow all healthcare insurers selling healthcare insurance in Pennsylvania the right to deny coverage for womenís services like midwives or breast reconstruction.

If you think these claims are some kind of joke or just canít happen you are dead wrong.

The facts are State Senator Mike Folmer has introduced several bills in the Pennsylvania State Senate to allow Pa. healthcare insurers to deny coverage for these exact services plus many, many more.

How about allowing big healthcare inusrers the right to deny coverage to mothers who need prescription drug formulaís to keep their babyís alive. Senator Mike Folmer wants to deny them from the current mandates on healthcare insurers in Pennsylvania.

State Senator Mike Folmer is on an all out war to attack and dismantle state mandated legislation that covers women and childrens healthcare services.

These healthcare services will be denied by healthcare insurers selling in Pennsylvania even under your private individual plans if State Senator Mike Folmer gets his legislation passed.

Take the time to look at these bills for yourself and if you feel as outraged as me contact State Senator and tell him to stop protecting the profits of insurance companies at the expense of the citizens and employers.

Let me get this right. State Senator Mike Folmer has one of the highest taxpayer paid staffers in the State Senate and he was still scared. It's obvious our tax dollars are being wasted.

http://www.legis.state.pa.us/CFDOCS/Legis/PN/...

I'm scared to Mike, That you will be re-elected and parents will lose their healthcare for their adopted child.

Which one is worse for the middleclass Citizens Mike ?

The rest of us can read and are able to figure that out for ourselves.

However, after looking at these links, I have serious concerns about these topics. Thanks for shedding light on them "what".

Another big concern, for me, is that Folmer has not distanced himself from the 9-12 Project members who behaved with such a lack of civility a very short while ago. In fact, he accepted an award from them last month. Interestingly enough, he fails to admit how connected he is to the 9-12 Project. Perhaps this is because he fears the backlash from other voters, who disagree with the antics of the leadership of the 9-12 Project. Only he knows for sure.

This is only my opinion, of course, decide for yourself if Folmer's connection to this group is a positive or a negative for you.

Mike you admitted to taking an unconstitutional paycheck and then want to justify taking it because you were last in line to cash your taxpayer check.

So much for abiding by the State Constitution differnce maker.

"We the People" can see by your actions your just more of the same.

Just read Mike Folmer's legislation and google the specific current manadates he wants to end and what they currently cover.

http://www.legis.state.pa.us/CFDOCS/Legis/PN/...

You will be amazed at how far to the right this man legislates.

Citizen Mike - keep on with what you are doing. You have some odd ideas I don't support, but I continue to support your leadership because you try to listen to people and think through the ideas they express.

makes me chuckle all you dems running scared this election cycle... bomberger, pavenski, edkin all writing into the forum constantly trying to sway the naive voter.

Litz no chance, will probably even lose commisioners race in 2012 if the dems get a decent candidate

Holden wins.. even though he tows the Pelosi line when told the GOP made a huge mistake with Argall

Sestak loses, if he does pull out a squeaker at least its no Spector, he got what he deserved

Small Games of Chance Bingo Bill

Senator Folmer's Small Games of Chance legislation, Senate Bill 211, would increase the weekly limits for small games of chance from $5,000 to $20,000. The measure is a companion bill to Senator Jane Orie's proposal (Senate Bill 212) to increase bingo prizes from $4,000 per day to $8,000. Separate legislation is required since there is a Small Games of Chance Law and a Bingo Law.

Bill History: Last session both bills were reported from the Senate Finance Committee, but were not acted upon by the Senate Appropriations Committee.

Thanks Mike!!! Local Fire company's and VFW clubs appreciate your support.

Now he's an insider just like the rest of them! What about term limits Folmer? Why aren't you bowing out this election??? You are a FULL TIME POLITICIAN! Hypocrite!

The term limit issue is a good question to bring up. Does Folmer have a reason why he thinks he should be allowed to continue running for office, when he formerly believed that term limits should be enacted for elected positions, such as his?

Or maybe he plans to bow out next time? Please, someone shed some factual light on this. Thanks.

"I'd rather be a really good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president," he told ABC's "World News" anchor Diane Sawyer in an exclusive interview today.

Now that he has already FAILED will he still run for a 2nd term?

Does anyone remember the fatal pedestrian death back in 2007 that took the life of a 52 year old woman that was in the crosswalk ?

http://blog.pennlive.com/patriotnews/2007/03/...

Who employee's the young lady that hit and killed this 52 year old lady crossing the road in the crosswalk ?

Corporate Mike does.

Who is Fallon Binner ? Former District Justice and Republican Hazel Swishers daughter.

It's amazing how this works for some when your family is tied to a politician like Mike Folmer.

I'm glad someone finally admitted that Mike Folmer is more then happy to take money from gambling as long as it supports a Fire Company.

Just like Mike Folmer is willing to diregard the State Constitution when it comes between him and his taxpayer paycheck.

Mike Folmer is a disgusting fraud. Just look at this man's voting record and legislation.

Parents of adopetd children won't get coverage for their adopted children if Mike Folmer gets his legislation passed.

Mike Folmer is a political hypocrite.
