2014 brings higher gas taxes in Pa

HARRISBURG, Pa.(AP)— Taxes on gasoline and diesel in Pennsylvania were higher as of Wednesday, the first of three increases being imposed by a new law, but that does not necessarily mean that motorists filling up their tanks in the state will pay more at the pump than they did in 2013.

Effective on Wednesday, the state Department of Revenue said gasoline taxes are going up by 9.5 cents per gallon while diesel taxes are going up by almost 13 cents per gallon. The tax increase applies only to transportation fuels and a number of fuel distributors and gas station owners say they plan to pass along the higher wholesale cost.

While no tax is imposed on Marcellus drilling for natural gas,( they kicked in a lot of money to Corbutts campaign ) motorists will feel the pinch as they fill up....

Thanks Tom, you scum bottom feeder !

WITHOUT OBAMACARE AND A LOUSY INSURANCE POLICY THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET YOUR HOSPITAL BILL..........

Reddit User Posts $55,000 Hospital Bill for Appendectomy

When a 20-year-old man got over the pain of having his burst appendix removed in October, he got hit with a hospital bill he wasn't expecting.

The bill from Sutter General Hospital in Sacramento, Calif., said the total charges were $55,029.31 but that the patient owed only $11,119.23 because his insurance had covered the rest.

Shocked, the patient took to Reddit to post the bill and vent his frustrations.

"I never truly understood how much health care in the U.S. costs until I got appendicitis in October," he wrote on the social media site. "I'm a 20-year-old guy. Thought other people should see this to get a real idea of how much an unpreventable illness costs in the U.S."

The recovery room alone cost $7,501.00, which the man said was surprising because he spent only two hours in there. The surgery cost $16,277.

"I think you can see how outrageous some of these costs are," he wrote.

wHEN i THOUGHT i WAS INSURED I THOUGHT MY INSURANCE COMPANY WOULD COVER 95 % OF THE BILLS !! bOY WAS i WRONG . THANKS OBAMACARE I SIGNED UP RIGHT AFTER THE SURGERY AND GOT A BETTER PLAN WITH OBAMACARE!

A new report estimates that 13 percent of Pennsylvania adults lack basic literacy skills, such as the ability to read newspapers or brochures. The report released Thursday by the National Center for Education Statistics is the first national comparison of state and county statistics on adult literacy. It examines data from 2003, the most recent year available.

The center says the percentage of Pennsylvania adults who struggle with basic literacy is at around the national average and remains unchanged from 1992.

Philadelphia County has the state's lowest literacy rate, with 22 percent of adults lacking basic skills.

Please keep in mind, I always use tea bagger sources (Washington Times) to prove idiot tea baggers like yourself wrong. Just like the pie chart that made your hilarious assertions about welfare (63 percent what?)

And please, learn the difference between a scientific study based on data gathered using the scientific method and a contention. The studies that indicate clearly that ignorance is far more pronounced among conservatives reflects the scientific method. By citing multiple sources that detail the methodology used along with the results, I provide evidence to support my contention. If you have evidence to the contrary, please provide it. Unfortunately, typing words is not evidence, no matter how many capital letters you use. Until you provide credible evidence that reveals the methodology used to gather it, it isn't a debate. It's a tea bagger doing what the GOP has done for 13 straight years - fail. Again.

How does cutting funding improve efficiency? The evidence I provided is incontrovertible (for both topic - conservatives being dumber than liberals and GOP cutting funding for education)- the GOP isn't any more interested in improving schools than they are funding them. Now, if one of their annual cut crusades included an improvement plan, there'd be a point. But there isn't one. The last time any "plan" for education was ever forwarded by this group of ignorance was No Child Left Behind, and it was such an extreme failure (like EVERYTHING they've done for the past 13 years) that it's been abolished entirely for the damage it caused.

Democrat IQ Test:

Why is Detroit a bombed out ghost town?

What was the price of a gallon of gasoline when Obama took office?

Do you see any problems with America borrowing $85 Billion every single month?

Why is there still poverty after we've spent over $7 Trillion on your "Great Society" programs that were supposed to eliminate poverty?

You voted for Obama in 2008 because he promised "Hope and Change". It's now January 2013 and everything is far worse than when Mr. Obama took office. Do you:
a) vote still approve of Obama
b) vote for anyone but Mr. Obama

For the past sixty years we've steadily increased spending on "education" in America, all the while SAT scores have steadily declined. To improve education in America we need to:
a) spend more on "education"
b) try something different
c) dumb-down the SAT tests

Torture is inhuman and should never be used because you believe in human rights. When we locate our enemies, your Nobel Peace Prize winning POTUS thinks it's okay to:
a) not torture them
b) assassinate them with a drone

There are about 20,000 gun-control laws on the books, the vast majority of which are completely ignored or not enforced. The solution for curbing "gun-violence" in America is:
a) enforcing existing gun laws
b) politicians passing more gun-control laws

The vast majority of violent criminals in our prisons are black and brown skins. This is because:
a) America is a racist country
b) The vast majority of violent crimes are committed by black and brown skins.

These are fun. I think I'll try it out. But first, let me exude some laughter for the idiot that tried to post an INTELLIGENCE TEST and fuct up the cut-and-paste part. I love tea bagger and wish they weren't all dying soon.

1. Detroit's in trouble because of poor local management. Same reason why the red states lead the nation in poverty, teenage pregnancy and welfare, and are paid for buy the blue states who lead the nation in income, standard of living and education.

2. Not sure, but everyone knows when gas went up - when our admitted international war criminal president invaded the wrong country. Gas was $1.46 when he took office and it tripled within four days and save for a few months of economic downturn, it hasn't gone down. And he was in the oil business. Oh, and Cheney was in the war business.

3. Hate to borrow. Bush had a budget surplus and emptied it and the treasury for his illegal wars. Thankfully though, Obama has reduced the budget deficit more than any president before him. So we're borrowing less and less each day.

4. There will always be poverty. But there is less of it because of our safety nets. Welfare is our nation's greatest profit center. It gives us the freedom to take risks, without which people would take less of them. That would kill our innovative and entrepreneurial efforts. Small business provides 85 percent of all employment in the US. We need people to take risks without worrying about homelessness or starvation as a result of failure.

5. Thing are far worse? You sure? We have an auto industry. Bin Laden was eaten by sharks in the ocean because we dumped his body after we shot him the face. We were headed for depression, but aren't in one. There are millions of new private sector jobs instead of Bush's pace of losing 400,000 per month. Women's bodies aren't controlled by ignorant Jesus freaks who think Noah's Ark was an actual historical event. We overhauled our failed healthcare system for the first time in 45 years.

6. B. Something different isn't cuts and No Child Left Behind was a total failure though. The GOP hasn't had a single idea in 13 years, so this is no different.

7. B. But stop being fancy, We're blowing up terrorists, not "assassinating" them. Torture doesn't work and it's against international law.

8. A. But we need to stop protecting the rights of whackos to own guns, which, for some reason, the GOP does relentlessly. Still haven't figured that one out.

9. The vast majority of crime is committed by white people, not brown "skins." Crime comes from poverty, not skin color. But our police are trained to seek convictions, not justice. Poor people cannot fight charges. Rich people can. Sop they predominantly police poor areas, regardless of color.

Wink, wink)

Anyway I am theorizing why the master blunt head has been absent lately and not inundating is with his constant spew. My theory is that he probably is finally getting the mental health attention that he needs so friggn badly under his new Obamacare health plan. He probably enjoying the benefits of the AFA that hes been demonizing for so many thousands of his boring posts...

Hay Skippy Obviously it’s the DEMOCRATS that hate School because they FLUNK/Quit sa many times

Dems NYC LOW IQ HS SCHOOL GRAD RATES
http://www.wnyc.org/story/302463-nyc-graduati...
In New York City, only 21.9 percent of all students were college and career ready, Statewide, 57.8 percent of Hispanic students and 58.1% of black students graduated in four years compared to 85.7 percent of white students. Oh yea Bloomberg wants to stop big soft drinks
The gap was particularly wide among those earning an Advanced Regents diploma. Statewide, 42 percent of white students earned Advanced Regents diplomas as compared to 12 percent of Hispanics and nine percent of black students.

Then we have Dems Breeding voter schools
http://sandrarose.com/2009/10/why-are-115-gir...
In this article, a white reporter with CBS News struggles to understand why 115 girls in a single high school are pregnant. Robeson High has a population of 800 students. And of course the school is majority black remember 93% Blacks voted Dems

Yep High IQ here bacon Hater yet you post that Dem have a higher IQ then Reps. maybe YOU have an IQ problem.
School demografics
http://insideschools.org/high/browse/school/7...

1% White.. 41% voted Dem
9% Hispanic… 71% voted Dem
88% Black… 93% voted dems

Dems big city schools
http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/education...
Big-city schools struggle with graduation rates

Among the nation's 50 largest districts, the study finds, three graduate fewer than 40%: Detroit (21.7%), Baltimore (38.5%) and New York City (38.9%).

Fourteen urban school districts have on-time graduation rates lower than 50%; they include Detroit, Baltimore, New York, Milwaukee, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Miami, Dallas, Denver and Houston.

Bottom line here DEMS are the Teachers and FAILED to TEACH

Dems run those School Boards DEMS failed those Schools.

“Government Benefits Tapped By Nearly Half Of Americans” During the second quarter of 2010, nearly half -- or 48.6 percent -- of Americans lived in a household using some kind of government benefit, according to Census data cited by the Wall Street Journal!.

In 2009 Bloomberg News partnered with The Washington Post to launch a global news service known as the The Washington Post News Service with Bloomberg News. Hosting content from both news sources, the service hopes to pair the political experience of the Washington Post with the global financial economic news of Bloomberg News.[

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-10-28/amer...

Americans ’Hooked’ on Government Benefits
A record 49 percent of Americans live in a household where someone receives at least one type of government benefit, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. And 63 percent of all federal spending this year will consist of checks written to individuals for which the government receives currently no services,

Also, if you're pointing out that the economy is bad, you'll receive no debate. It's bad because the last time the GOP had any power, they invaded the wrong country and destroyed the greatest economy in the history of man. And for a little more GOP ignorance evidence - isn't it just DUMB to destroy an economy, then bitch about the economy? Isn't just as dumb to block 22 separate jobs bills, then bitch about jobs? Isn't also dumb to know that 4 out of 5 people on food stamps HAVE JOBS, then call them lazy? Pretty dumb to know that we can raise minimum wage by $2 and drop the food stamp rolls by 40 percent, refuse to raise the minimum wage, then bitch about the number of people on food stamps.

Anyone who needs evidence of conservative ignorance IS THE EVIDENCE.
