Question for wolf supporters. Where do you think he is going to get the money for all his plans? If he taxes gas wells more than already taxed, your heating bills will go up. If he raises Pa income tax you will pay more for your own taxes, plus more for everything you buy, because sellers will raise prices to pay higher tax. He falsely claims Corbett cut a billion dollars from education, and he wants to put it back. Does wolf think a magic genie is going to drop a truckload of gold on the Capitol steps if he gets elected? Wolf supporters either make a lot of money and not worried about paying more for everything, or they are living of the gov. and don't pay taxes.

Governor Corbett’s Budget Cuts Over $1.1 Billion in Education
Governor Corbett recently released the details of his proposed state budget for 2011-2012, including staggering cuts to basic education (over $1.1 BILLION). This budget represents an outrageous lack of understanding of the value and importance of public school to the future of our kids, our communities and our economy. These cuts will affect all Pennsylvanians and our legislators need to hear from us NOW about how this is the wrong choice for Pennsylvania.
Here are a few talking points:
•We need strong public schools to ensure a full economic recovery; shortchanging our future workforce is the last thing we want to do when the economy is just beginning to bounce back.
•Investments in public education are working; PA has show student achievement improvements in every subject and grade level tested in the past several years. These cuts risk losing ground on that progress.
•Every $1 spent on early education yields $7 in savings � including reduced costs of crime, drug use and teen parenting. This budget gives an increase to prisons but cuts education, and that does not make sense.
•Before cutting education legislators need to ask corporation to pay their fair share like the rest of us. We need to tax natural gas extraction and smokeless tobacco, like every other state.
•These cuts put the following at risk: after school programs, efforts to reduce class size, tutoring and mentoring, full-day kindergarten and other early education funding in the form of accountability block grants (ABGs). These things have all proven time and time again to be some of the best ways to improve education, and we need to preserve programs and practices that are proven to work.
Details on the budget:
•School districts would lose more than $1 billion of state and federal stimulus funding.
•Basic Education Subsidy reduced by $550 million.
•Accountability Block Grants were eliminated, a loss of $259.456 million - Much of this was used by districts to support early education.
•Charter school reimbursement to districts is eliminated, a loss of $224.083 million - These payments reimbursed school districts for about 25% of their charter school costs; helping to offset fixed costs that districts still incur when a student leaves and the district makes a payment for them.
•Special Education would be flat-funded for the 3rd consecutive year at ($1.026 billion).
•Career and Technical Education was level funded at $62 million.
•Other cuts to school districts amount to more than $50 million.
These other basic education items are eliminated entirely:
•Basic Education Formula Enhancements ($1.984 million)
•Enrollment Payments ($6.959 million)
•School Improvement Grants ($10.797 million)
•Education Assistance Program ($47.606 million)
•Science It�s Elementary ($6.910 million)
•Mobile Science Education Program ($1.6 million)
� •Intermediate Units ($4.761 million)
•Entity Demonstration Projects ($600 thousand)
•High School Reform ($1.762 million)
•Lifelong Learning ($825 thousand)
•Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic ($69 thousand)
•Job Training Programs ($3.442 million)

check your facts. Pa. already has a tax on drillers. Your an idiot if you think the gas drillers will pay a new tax. They will just increase your home heating gas bill to cover the tax.
I have checked the facts. Fact: Drillers in PA do not pay a tax to drill. They only pay a one time small fee to the state to obtain a license to drill in the State. After that they pay no fee or tax.

Peace Prize Prez Says War wrote:
A President Who Ran Promising Peace Cautiously Declares War
September 10, 2014
Obama's address was a striking escalation over his past rhetoric.
Never has a declaration of war been so cautious. Never has an American president spent so much time talking about what the declaration doesn't mean and left so many questions about what it does mean.
But what President Obama put forth in his nationally televised address Wednesday night still was a declaration of war—even if he did prefer to call it a "counterterrorism campaign."
What made it more remarkable was that it was delivered by a president who ran for office on an antiwar platform and hoped his legacy would be leaving the nation at peace.
This is the president who, 19 months ago in a speech at the National Defense University, stated that the war on terrorism, "like all wars, must end"; who 33 weeks ago in his State of the Union address said, "America must move off a permanent war footing"; and who 14 days ago told reporters that "we don't have a strategy yet" for combating the Islamist terrorist group, ISIS, that has seized broad swaths of territory in Iraq and Syria.

HUFFPOLLSTER: Poll Gives The GOP A National Edge
09/03/2014

BATTLEGROUND GIVES GOP GENERIC BALLOT EDGE - In a bipartisan Battleground poll released Wednesday morning, 46 percent of Americans said they'd vote for a Republican congressional candidate, while 42 percent preferred a Democrat.

President Obama's approval rating remained mired at 44 percent.

One in 10 Americans said their feelings about him would determine their vote, while another 13 percent said they were voting mostly on Obamacare; a 24 plurality chose the economy as their top issue.

From the press release: "An overwhelming majority of American voters feels that the nation is on the wrong track and the economy will be a key factor in November’s elections, according to the latest George Washington University Battleground Poll...When weighing party choices on economic issues, the Republican Party holds a 7-point advantage with 49 percent of voters expressing more confidence in its ability to find solutions."

A vote for Wolf is just like giving Obama a third term. Democrats are Democrats, they will never change, they are not for you, they are tax people. But they want your taxes. A Democrat vote is stupid.

Nancy Pelosi: Civilization ‘In Jeopardy’ If GOP Takes Senate [VIDEO]
09/12/201

On the one hand, California U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi claims that Democrats are not “fear-mongers;” on the other hand, she believes civilization is doomed if Republicans take control of the Senate from Democrats in November.

The former speaker of the House made those dramatic, incongruous statements on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” which aired live from Washington, D.C. Friday.

Maher asked Pelosi about recent polling which shows that the GOP is likely to take over the upper chamber and asked, given gridlock in Washingon, why it matters that Democrats keep control.

“It would be very important for the Democrats to retain control of the Senate,” Pelosi told Maher.“Civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy if the Republicans win the Senate.”

Good gawd, Old Fool! Electing a Democrat in one of 50 states is equivalent to an Obama third term as chief executive of the entire nation? It is understood you're simply a troll attempting to goad a response from someone, anyone... but a competent troll presents an argument, that while outrageous and partisan, still makes some minimal amount of sense, posessed of a just a modicum of rationality.

And if Obama was constitutionally permitted a third term, the American people would give it to him... for no other reason than the GOP will inevitably, to satisfy ther right wing-nut base, nominate another loser like McCain or Romney. America is changing, and Dubya Dumazz Bush was the last incompetent they will elect from the GOP.
