Folmer is a liar

United States

#1 Mar 8, 2011
Mike Folmer better wake up. Taking $70 million dollars from our kids educations and handing it over to Republican corporate welfare big business isn't shared sacrifice.

http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/index.ssf/20...

Increasing welfare payments by $607 million dollars for people that won't get jobs and cutting teacher salaries to pay for it isn't shared sacrifice.

http://post-gazette.com/pg/11067/1130526-100....

Folmer is the only person that thinks cutting pay from union teachers and giving $70 million in tax cuts for corporations is spreading the pain around.

Folmer is the only person that thinks increasing welfare checks for people that won't get a job by $607 million dollars is spreading the pain around.

Really Folmer $607 million more taxpayer dollars for people receiving welfare is spreading the pain ?

Tell me again why I'm suppose to believe that Mike Folmer isn't outright lying to his constituents ?

Meanwhile, Elco School District has an estimated $1.7 million shortfall in its budget and is still debating the size of a property-tax increase.

Mike Folmer and Tom Corbett spreading the pain around to the people that own property.
All Folmer's Republican spreading of pain around ends up on the property owners pocketbook.

Oh my yes. The new governor and legislators are damning our children to ignorance in hedge-row schools after a whole 7 weeks In office...meanwhile the annual increase on my real estate taxes over the past 8 years had NOTHING to do with a lame-ass governor and complicit legislation allowing teachers' unions and corrupt school boards to extort one guarenteed payraise after another.

A fool's errand deserves fool's gold.

"The Three Blind Mice" are happy that the middle class is being assaulted by Corbett's budget, while corporations will be getting tax breaks and increasing profits. Property taxes and college tuition will increase, while the K-12 education system will be forced to dilute its programs, increase class sizes, and cut the number of teachers. Meanwhile, the billion dollar natural gas industry will face less regulation and not have to pay a dime for making shareholders and corporate executives richer.(Imagine the bonuses!)
Folmer, Gingrich, and Swanger are completely out of touch and have no compassion for the middle class. Their positions and support of Corbett policies will directly contribute to the pain and suffering that all but the rich will face in the coming months and years. They do not deserve to hold their positions and should not be re-elected.

GOP jobs not more welfare

Harrisburg, PA

#8 Mar 9, 2011
Republicans have just turned Pennsylvania into the Welfare Capitol of the USA. Spending more hard working taxpayer money on welfare handouts and less on educating our children sends a clear picture which road Republicans and Gov. Corbett are taking state down.

That would make Public Welfare the costliest department, topping education, which would drop to $10 billion in fiscal 2011-12. Under former Gov. Ed Rendell, education was always No. 1 and welfare No. 2.

I will give Republicans credit for one thing they did just elect the biggest welfare supporting Republican Governor this state has ever seen.

Corbett knows exaclty which road he is taking the middlecass down. Coporations will be fine and welfare recipients have been taken care of with this budget.

Once again Republicans will use the middle class homeowners property as their collateral to pay for their parties corporation tax cuts, welfare increases and reductions in education.

How many modern businesses are going to relocate to a state that spends more on welfare payouts then they do educating their children ?

So increasing welfare spending over the education of our children is going to entice businesses to relocate to Pennsylvania and provide an economic climate and a condition to attract those good-paying jobs to help us all.

Think again Folmer. No business is relocating to a state that promotes funding welfare over education.

That would make Public Welfare the costliest department, topping education, which would drop to $10 billion in fiscal 2011-12. Under former Gov. Ed Rendell, education was always No. 1 and welfare No. 2.

State Senator Mike Folmer may lie and tell you Governor Corbett spread the pain around, but it's absolutely not true.

This budget destroy kids college educations and will double the local school tax of homeowners.

The three Republican stooges better realize the facts. Pennsylvania gained 65,000 thousand jobs the third most to our other fifty states.

The rhetoric has finished the excuses are over and the three stooges job growth bar has already been set.

Let's see if the Republican Party can produce the same job growth or better in 2011 as Pennsylvania did in 2010.

Unions spent about 6 million to crush the Wisconsin debacle and all they got was 16 dems who took a despicable vacation...( could you imagine the NBC uproar had the GOP done that during the health care debate or something similar? wow) that 6 mill could have hired 150 teachers for a year...

Way to be educated....
