Ryan's letter is a home run. The petty sniping in politics is serious business only to pettier politicians. It's time to put aside childish press releases and tackle the real problems the country faces.
Ryan sounds like a serious man who's up to the job.

Senator Mike Folmer could learn a few things from Francis Ryan about integrity and honesty to the citizens and office he was elected to represent.
I just wish State Senator Mike Folmer would have had shown this same guts and inner strength in pursuit of doing what's expected of our leaders. Mike Folmer decided to just abandon the Pa. State Constitution.
Like Senator Mike Folmers other Democratic and Republican collegues Mike decided an unconstitutional paycheck was more important then abiding by the Pa. State Constitution.
It's to bad for the citizens in District 48 Francis Ryan didn't run against incumbent Pa. Senator Mike Folmer in the Republican primary for Pa. State Senate.
Francis would have won easily.

Mike Long's trash is back. Time to carry it to the curb, Mike, and let the haulers take it to the dump where it belongs.

Whats the difference between Congress and a playground full of kids?
The kids learn to play together.

I just wanted to say that I appreciate Frank Ryan's letter and wish it wasn't such a rare thing in politics these days. While we may be divided by policy views, more often than not we have far more in common and focusing on petty issues only serves to divide us further.

Maybe Francis Ryan will come clean and tell the Republicans in Lebanon County how many jobs the Recovery Act saved or produced in Lebanon County.
A $2 million dollar low interest loan to Alway's Bagel's new plant.
A $7.5 million dollar low interest loan to Weaber's Saw Mill.
Jobs and businesses saved and produced by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in Lebanon County.

Pennsylvania then he is the citizens living in the State.
How would you feel about lifting current state laws that require healthcare insurers to cover services like children’s 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 don’t we just allow all healthcare insurers selling healthcare insurance in Pennsylvania the right to deny coverage for women’s services like midwives or breast reconstruction.
If you think these claims are some kind of joke or just wouldn’t happen you’re 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.
State Senator Mike Folmer is on an all out war to attack and dismantle state mandated legislation that covers women and children’s 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.

If you really want to reform health care, allow companies to sell across state lines. Don't need a smoke and mirrors routine from the liberal neo-fascist Democrats.
